The beautiful islands of Aruba and Curacao are so colorful and inviting, plus we get a day at Royal Caribbean’s private beach destination of Labadee, Haiti.  The Southern Caribbean is a great backdrop for our quilting days at sea.

The Educator:  Jacquelyn Morris Smith

I have been sewing since a very young girl and found my true passion in the world of quilting in 2007. I took many lessons, learned the hard way:  made lots of mistakes, had uneven seams, wonky and uneven blocks, forced the blocks together, and still I have progressed. I love to teach others, after all, since I have made all the mistakes no one else has to. My teaching goals are simple: to let students learn a technique and find their way out of an “ooops” moment. There is nothing that can’t be fixed, and I like to see my students having a stress free, fun-filled time and all the while finishing with a positive experience.

I began teaching quilting in 2009 while working at a quilt shop in Green Valley, AZ.  I enjoyed that experience as it forced me to learn even more techniques than I wanted to learn. I have been privileged to speak and teach at several guilds in Arizona, California and Utah – as well as on cruise ships.

 

The Project: 

Jacquelyn is busy designing and creating a new project for this cruise.  Once completed, we will upload the picture and description here.  It will be a piecing project, with bold and beautiful colors and Jacquelyn will be a hands-on educator sharing all of her tips and tricks, as well as her favorite techniques.
