Sherida Giddings Johanne Moore
About the Educators:
Sherida has been an avid quilter for over 25 years. She started teaching locally, as well taking classes from local and international instructors, including Quiltworx Certified Instructors. These courses sparked her desire to become a Quiltworx Certified Instructor and she fulfilled this dream in 2015. Since then, Sherida has been travelling and teaching, including the thrilling opportunity to teach on a Quilt Retreat at Sea Cruise to Hawaii in 2018. She is excited to once again share her love of paper piecing as we cruise to the Southern Caribbean in February 2020.
Johanne is an accomplished quilter and long armer, who has been involved in all aspects of sewing since she was a teen. She has worked at local quilt shops and taught a multitude of different quilting classes, including Quiltworx paper piecing, and is involved with teaching new quilters in 4H. She has taken classes from local and international quilt teachers, including Judy Niemeyer and various Quiltworx Certified Instructors. Her piecing and long arm work has been featured in several quilting magazines and a book.
She got her sea legs in 2018 while assisting Sherida on a Quilt Retreat at Sea Cruise to Hawaii and is looking forward to sharing her passion on her next cruise to the Caribbean Islands in 2020.
It’s time for some fun in the sun as we head to the Southern Caribbean! Quiltworx Certified Instructor, Sherida Giddings, and Quilting Instructor, Johanne Moore, will guide you with expert paper piecing tips and techniques as we set sail for ‘Sew Many Islands!’
What will you make? It’s a mystery so you will be kept guessing on the actual design of your small paper pieced project, but we will tempt you with sneak peaks of some fabrics so you can select your colorway.
