You're Invited!


September 20 - 23, 2017

It’s Almost Here!

The Certified Instructors from Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design are proud to invite quilters to the 2018 Studio 180 Academy.  A Studio 180 Academy is jam packed with three (3) full days of instruction, inspiration, and motivation.  At no other time will quilters have as much access to as much knowledge and instruction regarding Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design tools and techniques as they will during a Studio 180 Academy.

Attendees will have the opportunity to enroll in classes beginning on

March 1, 2018. Every class will be taught by a team of Studio 180 Certified Instructors.  Class sizes are limited to 20 participants.  Some instructors have offered classes of their original pattern designs, or a pattern designed by fellow Certified Instructors, while others will be offering instruction from either the Studio 180 or Modern 180 pattern line.

Lodging and meal accommodations are at the Illinois Beach Resort & Conference Center in Zion, Illinois  Lodging and meals are all on site.  Participants are welcome to select the accommodations package that works best for them.    

The on-site Academy Store will be well stocked with all of the Studio 180 Design products.  Show special pricing will apply towards Studio 180 products.  If you would like to take advantage of any of the special pricing, then we encourage you to make your pattern and tools purchases when you arrive at the Academy.

The Store will be stocked with other notions and items such as Invisi-grip by Omnigrid, Best Press, pins, seam rippers, marking pencils and other supplies that perhaps did not get packed or may be consumed during the Academy.  The Store will be open during classroom hours and again for a specific period of time following the dinner hour.

Registration for the 2018 Studio 180 Academy will open on March 1, 2018. Seats will be filled on a first-come-first served basis with the required payment.  Our total enrollment is limited, so mark your calendars and set your alarms.  

Class offerings and descriptions are available on this website on the “Classes” tab.  If you would like to learn about the instructor’s background, feel free to review the Studio 180 Academy Faculty tab.
