Kimberly Einmo
Lecture:  Simple Creativity For Inspired Design

You'll never look at quilts the same way again. Mary describes the four different styles of quilts in America in all their fascinating glory. A "show-stopper" in terms of information given and "ooh-ahh" quilts to admire.

Be prepared to be dazzled in July when Kimberly speaks about her creative and inspired designs.

Kimberly Einmo is an author, award-winning quilter, designer, international quilting instructor and quilt judge.  She has written 6 quilting books including Jelly Roll Quilt Magic, Modern Quilts and More, and her latest, Clever Combo Quilts, and she is a columnist for American Quilter magazine.  Her articles have appeared in American Patchwork and Quilting, McCall's Quilting and Best Modern Quilts to name a few.

Beginning to quilt in 1991 after a start as a graphic designer, Kimberly soon began teaching and creating her own patterns and tools for students.  Her signature line of quilting tools, EZ Flying Geese Ruler, EZ Jelly Roll Ruler, and others are a result of her efforts to make a quilter's life easier.

While starting with a traditional block method, Kimberly has evolved over time to embrace a modern sensibility, drawing inspiration from new design elements in nature, architecture or landscape.  All while valuing traditional construction.  A people person at heart Kimberly loves to teach all over the world and aims to have all her students leave her classes feeling excited and productive.

The Flying Geese Quilters 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 Quilters 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 quilters 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.
