TUCKER UNIVERSITY IS COMING TO QGS!
Are you interested in building your skills & the accuracy of your piecing? Then QGS has the program for you! This year we will be offering the Tucker University series of classes. Each class covers a different Studio 180 Design tool along with ways to expand the use of the tool. Students will make 4" finished units so that they can combine and create new blocks. The creativity is contagious!
Each session we will demonstrate a specific ruler and the various design options the ruler gives you. There will be no class fee for this series but the purchase of the Studio 180 Ruler being featured and the accompaning Design Sheet and Technique Sheet will be required. In total there will be 6 sessions offered over the next year. Ruler costs vary from session to session, from approximately $20 to $50 and the Design Sheet and Technique Sheet are $7.50 each. As with all our classes you will receive a 15% discount on the ruler purchase and any other purchases the day of class. We are certain that you will find it a valuable tool in your piecing.
These classes will be meeting every other month on the third Saturday from 10 am to 12:30 pm, starting on February 16. If we have enough interest we will be offering this class on Wednesday afternoons also.
