Speaker:Mike McNamara

If you like to laugh you will enjoy Mike McNamara's program and Trunk Show.
You will be amazed by the inspirational quilts that Mike makes. His lectures is about his quilts, his influences in quilt-making, why and how he make his quilts. It is a trunk show and he will bring a whole raft of quilts for people to see, touch, inspect, and take a nap under if it comes to that. The trunk show includes
eight quilts recently displayed at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles.

Mike started quilting in 1976 and has had quilt-making influences come from friends and associates and other teachers, such as: the incredible Rhoda Cohen, Ann Schroeder, Sylvia Einstein, Nancy Crow, Nancy Halpern, Nancy Crasco, Sandy Donabed, Tafi Brown, Paula Nadelstern, Tracey Brookshier, Susan Else, Billie Street, and the inimitable and unique Joe Cunningham.
In Mikes own words “Quilt-making gives me that outlet to make poetic statements. Sometimes it's simply a way to provoke a question, such as: ‘Why is that pig in that quilt?’ and the response is: 'I date my quilts by the year of the Asian animal - made in the Year of the Pig.' I may include other literary elements: puns, metaphors, riddles, personal history, rebuses, and plain ole jokes - do you know the joke about the three-legged pig?" Ask him.

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.
