Quilter's Journey

Tucker University - Freshman Year

As a result of taking a Tucker University course, students will gain new techniques without the obligation of having to complete a full quilt top.  Students will be able to apply their new skills on patterns that require specific units.  Students are encouraged to use these techniques on any pattern.  For example, some patterns that are found in their favorite magazine could potentially be "Tuckerized" by applying the Studio 180 Design tool and technique.
The Tucker University courses were designed using 4" finished units.  The Studio 180 Design tools were designed to trim down 6 or more different sizes of any one unit depending upon the tool.  The reason 4" finished units was selected was because the units could then be combined with other units to make either 8" or 12" finished blocks.
Classes will begin in January 2021.  They will be scheduled the second Saturday of each month and the Friday before the second Saturday.  (Most months the Friday session will be the second Friday, but some months it will be on the first Friday of the month.)  Please check with Quilters Journey for the dates for each month.  You will only attend one session each month.  You may sign up for the Friday Session or the Saturday Session.  Classes will be about 4 hours each month.  There are required materials needed for each session.  You will receive each month's requirements in the previous class.
Price listed is for the first month.  Class cost is $20 each month.  This includes the class and a Design Sheet for the tool used each month.  The materials costs includes the Tucker Trimmer I, Quilter's Magic Wand, and the Shaded Four Patch Technique Sheet.  If you have these, you not need to purchase them.  If you don not have some or all of them, you will need to purchase them.  They will be available to purchase the day of class.
