September 12, 2016
Speaker: Mickey Depre

If you like to laugh you will enjoy Mickey's program titled Tips, Tricks, and Other Stuff. Textiles have always fascinated Mickey, from vintage to current, her taste has always been ALL! Sewing in general, mending to garment making, were never a chore. But when she pushed herself beyond traditional quilt making, she found the road less traveled was greatly inviting. “My quilts have been described as whirlwinds of color, with oranges residing next to purples of all shades in harmony. Dots, swirls, and stripes intermingle with florals and prints in an outlandish yet exciting visual parade. This is how I see the world and how I want the world to see me."She says with a smile.

Her work mixes traditional quilting techniques with bold, innovative machine appliqué and thread work. Fabric choices include her own hand dyed cotton with commercial cottons for a special spark of color and depth. Her pieces are heavily machine quilted.“The images are meant to spark thought and a smile, as humor is a great gift to share. With the release of my new book Pieced Hexies… Well, I feel I have come full circle. So while you may know me initially as an Art Quilter… I am also a Traditional Quilter,” Mickey says with a spark of humor.

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.
