Workshop : "Learn to Use those Deb Tucker Rulers" with Rhonda Gianturco, 

9 a.m.-3 p.m. Hilton Baptist Church, Newport News, VA $20 (this is the rescheduled date and location change)


We have all seen Deb Tucker’s booth at Mid-Atlantic, and many of us have bought her rulers with the promise of beautiful, even-sized blocks with matching points. But then we get home, and we can’t remember how she did it and don’t even take it out of its packaging.


Rhonda Gianturco will be conducting a hands-on seminar on how to use your Deb Tucker rulers. Bring your rulers, and we’ll spend the day learning how to use them. I will bring my rulers also, so you can try your wish list items. I’ll also bring my Deb Tucker technique sheets to try some advanced techniques if we have the time.


Please bring the following supplies:


Your Deb Tucker rulers (please label them so we can share as needed) and your accompanying directions. If you have lost the directions, you can find copies at www.studio180design.net under “Free Downloads”.


1.  Rotary cutter and mat

2. Long rulers to cut WOF and a 6-7” square ruler

3. Sewing machine, thread, extension cord, general sewing supplies

4. Pencil (to mark sewing lines on fabric)

5. Fabric: We will be playing, not making a particular project, so fabric from your stash is great! Please pre-iron your fabric.

6. A yard (or 2 half yards or more) of a white or cream

7. At least 3 or 4 different, contrasting fabrics in fat quarters or half yard pieces (solids or tone-on-tone will show off your points to their best advantage!).

Workshop Coordinators

Mark and I are so excited to be your local Wo​rkshop Coordinators. We have had many of you approach us offering workshops in lots of different areas. We are hoping to have monthly workshops of some sort. Half-day workshops will be $12 and full-day $20. Locations and times will vary due to availability and instructor requests. Any kit fees will be paid directly to the instructor and are in addition to the workshop fee. Hopefully, you have all read the new instructor payment Guidelines in the last newsletter. Here are some pictures from former Workshops.  If you have any to share, please send them to [email protected].
