Clubs & Monthly Meetings

 

Tucker University is coming to Quilt Country!

That’s right! Quilt Country will be beginning Tucker University classes in January, 2018. “What is Tucker University?” you may be asking. Tucker University is a series of classes using Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Designs tools and technique sheets to make accurate and precise units.

If you’ve ever wanted to make accurate Flying Geese blocks, V blocks, Corner Beam blocks or Lemoyne Star blocks (just to name a few) then these are the classes for you.

Nikki Mundt will teach the classes which will be held on the first Friday evening of each month from 6 – 9 pm. The cost of each class will be $15.00. The “Tool of the Month”, Technique and Design sheets for that tool will be required for class and will be available at Quilt Country. As a bonus, a binder set up with dividers and page protectors will be given to students who sign up for all six classes at the beginning of the series.

Each monthly class will focus on a specific tool and the many ways it can be used to make units that can be combined with other basic units to make a wide array of layouts.

Class dates are as follows:

January 5, 2018             Tucker Trimmer I         

February 2, 2018           V Block

March 2, 2018                            Wing Clipper I

April 6, 2018                   Square Squared

May 4, 2018                    Corner Beam

June 1, 2018                    Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star

It could be anything…quilts, bags, techniques: you, the students, choose what we do! Dianne brings a main dish, the students and employees bring side dishes, snacks and dessert to make a pot luck meal!
