6 Geese a Laying!

This teacher is way more impressive than geese laying eggs!  It all started in 1981, when a young bride-to-be decided to make a quilt before her marriage.  Deb Tucker went on to spend the next twenty years developing her quilting skills, learning about all different types of quilting techniques, and teaching new and experienced quilters how to make their quilt tops using the most accurate techniques to create the best quilts.  Deb Tucker is the Creative Kingpin and originator of all the tools and techniques that form the basis for our products. In addition to her teaching, she has edited two international quilting magazines; taught and lectured about quilting nationally and internationally; presided over the Vermont State Quilt Guild for several years; and has held many traditional terms of office in a number of local quilt guilds.Her background in education and architecture perfectly suit her current role as designer and educator for Studio 180 Design. She is the inspiration that keeps the company coming up with new ideas and innovative tools and techniques.

To Celebrate Deb Tucker all in stock Studio 180 Rulers and instruction sheets are 25% off on Saturday, December 12!3d1cdbe30620558a2d4a60332e4494bb 0208d9e38a0c2565bd24dee14470a476

Day 2 and some history

What can you say about a company that has been around since 1649!  The town of Fiskars was home to a blast furnace and forge.  Through the centuries the town processed copper, created farm implements, cutlery, and in 1867 began making scissors.  In 1977 they opened a factory in the US and since then have sold over 1billion of the orange handled scissors that have become their signature product.  As Quilting grew in popularity Fiskars continued to strengthen their product line with top tools such as the  Fabric Cutting Set offering the perfect combination of tools for basic sewing and quilting tasks. Our Classic Stick Rotary Cutter features a 45 mm blade perfect for cutting multiple layers of fabric. Our compact Cutting Mat is the ideal size for easy transport, convenient storage or cutting fabric in a small workspace. It features a self-healing mat with measuring grids on both sides to outlast other cutting mats. Included bias lines make shape cutting and cutting at angles a breeze.  This is a great set of tools to keep at the sewing machine, tuck the mat under the front of the machine for easy measuring and use the cutter to trim threads and those pesky little points.  Regular price is $29.99 on Day 2 pay only $20!  A great set for taking to class or for the new quilter!
