Quilter Skill Level Definitions

• A Beginner is eager to learn and can sew a fairly straight line with a sewing machine.

• You are an Advanced Beginner if you know how to thread the sewing machine, wind a bobbin and use a rotary cutter. You can sew simple pieced designs and simple appliqué. Blocks may come out different sizes or odd-shaped.

• You are an Intermediate quilter if you have been quilting for several years, have taken several quilting classes, and are having more success with piecing skills. You are learning the finer points of pressing, cutting and adjusting seam allowances for more accuracy. You are trying more challenging patterns and designs.

• You are an Advanced quilter if you have mastered all the basic skills. You have begun designing your own quilt blocks and patterns, combining designs from various sources, and learning more advanced techniques to enhance your work.

Are you confident making four-patch units and easy blocks, but shy away from piecing more difficult quilt designs?

If so, welcome to the world of Studio 180 and the Rapid-Fire Hunter Star! Learn to use Deb Tucker's amazing technique and ruler for piecing the Hunter Star. This is a strip pieced technique with a very unique approach. We will use Deb's "basic recipe" to make a table runner or lay out of your choice.

Saturday Sampler 2015-2016

Saturday Sampler will begin on September 12, 2015 and continue for twelve months, ending in August 2016. The fabric choices will be Spring, Fall and Winter.  

Here's How It Works:

  • At 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. on the second Saturday of each month we will introduce that month’s block and give a short demonstration of a technique or tool that can be used to make that block. These sessions will be identical, attend only one.

  • The first time you attend a Saturday Sampler demonstration, you buy a fabric kit for $5.00. It contains fabric for one block in the colorway you have chosen.

  • Go home and sew the block. Bring it with you to the following month’s Saturday Sampler demonstration and you will get your next fabric kit free!

There are a Few Conditions:

  • Each participant will need to have a copy of the book Four Seasons at Minglewood by Debbie Roberts.  Books are $26.95 and can be purchased at Threads of Tradition when you register for Saturday Sampler.

  • If you want to make blocks in more than one colorway, that’s great! But you only get one free kit per month. You must pay for the additional ones.

  • To receive your free kit, you must either attend the demonstration on the second Saturday at either 8:00 or 9:00 a.m. OR bring your completed block into the shop anytime in the week following Saturday Sampler - up to and including the third Saturday of the month.

  • If you cannot come in during Saturday Sampler week, you can still buy that month’s kit for $5.00 while supplies last. Bring that finished block into the shop anytime during the following month’s Saturday Sampler week and your next kit is free.

Each Month We Give Away a Door Prize:

  • Every month you will have an opportunity to make the challenge blocks to be eligible for the door prize. Only those persons who attend a session and complete the extra challenge will be eligible for the door prize drawing.

  • You can make the quilt as pictured in the pattern or, if you would like to work on your own creative setting for your sampler quilt; the extra blocks for the door prize can be blocks you plan to use in your finished quilt or can be in a different color for a second quilt.

Inclement Weather:

  • During the last six years, we have never needed to cancel Saturday Sampler due to weather. Since you have the option of bringing your completed block into the shop any time during the week following Saturday Sampler, we will not cancel unless the roads are impossible for us to get here. If you feel the weather is too bad to travel, please stay home on Saturday Sampler day and visit us on the day of your choice in the following week. If we do decide to cancel due to extreme weather, we will not try to reschedule, but will postpone that month’s lesson until the next month. If you need to know if the class is cancelled, you may call 800-590-9755 6:30 a.m. and the receptionist will know if Saturday Sampler has been cancelled.
