As a Fantastic Bonus for each class you take with us you will earn a Beautiful Siesta Sterling Silver Charm. If you attend all 12 you will receive a Graduation Charm also! Come in the shop to see these, they are so nice.
The Square Squared unit can be found within blocks as well as sahhing. Since this unit is often used to connect other units, the points are extremely valuable for the design to work without interruption. You will save those points with the Square Squared tool. A secondary benefit to using Deb Tucker's method of creating Square Squared units is that you will not waste fabric. It's a win-win situation.
Expand the use of your Squared Squared tool by learning how to make little houses. Little houses have been disquised in borders and have shown up in some star blocks. You will be astounded where these units show up.
