Tucker University at Sew Suite Studio

What is Tucker University?

Tucker University is a simple and proven method of creating perfectly-pieced quilt blocks. Deb Tucker of Studio 180 has developed this program as a way for quilters of all levels to perfect their piecing and get beautiful results. Easy-to-use rulers help to cultivate precision in quilt piecing.

Tucker University features the blocks you create every day - from half-square triangles and flying geese to more complicated blocks such as the Lemoyne Star and combination blocks! Work your way through the curriculum and see a visible improvement in the quality of your quilt piecing!

Tucker University currently features a "Freshman Year" and a "Sophomore Year." Students can pick and choose which blocks they want to learn and will earn a Siesta Silver Charm for each completed class, including a Graduation Charm for perfect attendance after each "year." Monthly classes will be held at both Sew Suite locations - to sign up or for more information see the class listings to the right! Each Class is $40 and includes: Class instruction, Design Sheet, Blackline Master sheet, and Sterling Silver Charm. Required for each class is the specific ruler for that topic. See details of other supplies needed at each class lesson.

You don't have to attend all classes, just the ones you're interested in. For every class you complete you'll get a shiny silver charm to wear showing your accomplishment. These charms have been specifically designed for Tucker University ONLY. See more info here: Silver Jewelry Info
