Take and Teach Schedule for Market

Make and Take session are classes that begin at 8:00 every morning before Market.  I LOVE them!  Last Market, a shop owner stopped me and said that these classes were invaluable because they had “guts” to them!  How often do you get to spend an hour and a half with the designers who wrote the books, patterns and/or designed the rulers???  You talk about going to the source???

Susan and Christine designed the Circle Savvy ruler (Item #CGRSAV1) with Karla Alexander and this ruler is now in the top 20.  Frankly, with their creativity, the demand is so high, we have trouble keeping it in stock!!!  They have designed a multitude of patterns and are even featuring it on an upcoming cruise!  Come see how you can use it to not only cut 26 sizes of circles – but also rings, arcs, and anything else they can think of!  They have a knack for making everything fast, fun and easy so come and see why these techniques should be on your teaching schedule.

Curves Made the Easy Way!

“Cut It Out” with Creative Grids and Fat Quarter Quickies

Kathy Brown of Teacher’s Pet is always the over achiever!  She designed the Fat Quarter Cutter with Creative Grids (Item #CGRY1).  This ruler has all of the lines you need to cut all of the pre-cuts on the market.  Cut your own and save big bucks!  Teach your customers how to manage their stash by cutting it into usable segments and stop feeling guilty about it!  Cut it up, use it up, and move on – that should be every quilter’s mantra!
But just in case they need help, Kathy has designed a whole new pattern line called Chubbies that can all be cut with this ruler in a matter of minutes.  Why not host a free stash busting party with the purchase of a ruler and have the patterns available to inspire them???
