So many of you missed May's Tucker University Class!
If you would like to take the class, I am offering it again next Saturday,

Please e-mail me at and let me know if you
would like to come that day.

We will be working with the Corner Beam Tool and the Slivers Technique Sheet this month.

1/4 yard Background

Hope to see you next Saturday!
