Hand Bell Concert:
Hand Bell ringers from Shepherd of the Hills Church in Mission Viejo will bring their joyful noise to entertain us.
Many children have never experienced the music of handbells. Each bell plays a different note, one following another which when strung together makes a melody.  Bells are sure to put you in a holiday mood

What is a fabric postcard:  it is a 4" X 6" mini quilt like creation composed of fabric, fused or sewn to a stiff interfacing or piece of cardstock. The fabric portion may be pieced, fussy cut, fused, or just a cute novelty print. It can be decorated with rick rack, glitter, ribbon, paint, buttons, stamped, drawn on, or just about anything else 
What can you do with a fabric postcard:  trade it, mail it, tie it together with others to make a garland, hang it on your tree, or just enjoy it.

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.
