TUCKER UNIVERSITY     

     Regardless of where you are on your quilting journey, at Ohio Star Quilts, we strive to ensure you are learning new techniques in every class.  Sew, back to school, we go with Tucker University!

     This is a series of technique classes learning to use Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Designs rulers. Come with Dee as she teaches you easy ways to do all the basic units common to many traditional quilts. These basic units can be made in many sizes and are used in many different blocks. Classes are technique sessions - so you won’t have UFOs.  You will use the basic units to build block sections while also enhancing your skills in quilting. These rulers are adaptable to many patterns and don’t have to be used only on Studio 180 Design patterns. Class materials, in addition to the ruler, include Technique sheets which explains how to use the system and Design sheets that help you understand color placement and use of your units. Both sheets are laminated and hole-punched for repeated use and reference. This is a 12-month program, month one being the most important as an introduction, then you can choose all or part of the next several months in the series.

A new series of technique classes will begin in January 2019Come join us!!
