Monday April 13th - Lecture

Mary Lou Weidman – Creativity and You!-

You won't want to miss Mary Lou's bright and cheery story quilts. Her lecture covers all kinds of ways to become more creative. Mary Lou explains avenues of creativity, the personality of the creative person and how you can stretch and become more creative with your thoughts and your quilts. Prepare to be inspired and to go away thinking of things you want to do to be a new "creative YOU."

Mary Lou Weidman began quilting with her Maternal Grandmother. Mary Lou's Father was an artist and musician and encouraged creativity and viewing the world in a curious, positive manner. Color, texture, shapes and composition were discussed at an early age and any drawing, coloring, painting or craft of the day was encouraged.

Mary Lou studied Fine Arts in school and did layout work for the city newspaper, store windows, and other venues. Around 1988, she started teaching story quilts which she had discovered by accident.
Now she is at a new place in her art life; painting on fabric, piecing and appliquéing. She is stretching by not doing the same things over and over.
Mary Lou has written five quilting books for Martingale and C&T, plus she has written many booklets. She owns a pattern company, represents Bernina, and has designed fabric for 14 years, 10 of that for Benartex. Mary Lou has taught all across the US,  Canada and in 8 countries.

"You really don't see with your eyes until your eyes start to see like an artist and this is so true in textile art as well as painting, drawing or sculpture."--Mary Lou Weidman

more information


The Flying Geese Quilter's Guild general membership meetings, offer quilt related programs from an extraordinarily talented membership and other locally recognized fiber artists, as well as nationally and internationally recognized guest speakers. Our speakers are quilters, quilt designers, clothing designers, doll makers, and textile designers – in other words, experts who impact our love of quilting. Without fail each month our guild members present a spectacular Show and Tell and a hint of the quilt show we present every other year. Before the meeting and during break there is time to browse our extensive lending library, socialize, and enter opportunity drawings for small wall hangings and door prizes. Between meetings we offer a variety of activities, such as workshops, philanthropy sewing days, and small friendship quilt group meetings.

The Flying Geese Quilter's Guild was founded in 1985 by a group of about 30 quilters.  In the past 29 years the guild has grown to approximately 300 members. The quilt guild was organized to promote and educate its members and the public in the techniques and methods of creative quilting and fiber arts, to preserve the heritage of quilt making, and to promote quilt related activities.  Regular meetings usually feature nationally known speakers. Members can also attend some speaker's workshops for a small fee.  Other benefits of membership include opportunities to join friendship groups, check books out from the Guild’s extensive library, and participate in quilt related philanthropic and community education projects. Other activities include a biennial quilt show, biennial quilt auction, and quilt retreats.
