Join Aunt Mag and teacher Jacquelyn Morris-Smith for an amazing quilting retreat in an absolutely beautiful environment in Southern Utah. Located just a few miles outside of Zion National Park, the red rocks create unbelievable sunsets and the fabulous villa we will stay in is unforgettable. This all-inclusive retreat will be a one of a kind luxurious opportunity for all who attend.
Jacquelyn: Quilting entered my life in 2007, and I became so absorbed in all its facets, I knew I had to keep learning. I have taken classes from some of the nation’s top quilters, and from the VERY talented instructors here in our own little world of Pima County- Tucson, AZ. Now I am teaching those who want to learn and those who are already advanced. But I have found through the teaching experiences that I also learn from the students. Teaching experience has taken me across the United States, and on the open seas as the Program Director and educator for Quilt Retreat at Sea.
Past students have remarked that they “like to take my classes, because I have already made the mistakes, and they won’t have to”.
Although the project is still in its early design stage, my style seems to be traditional quilts with a modern twist to form new and exciting quilts. I love color and this destination, so it only makes sense to feature the vibrant colors of Mexico. The project will include piecing and a method I created called “Switch-up”, which makes one block into four blocks.
We will post sneak peek of fabrics and more as we go along ...
