Program Monday, August 14, 2017
Leah Zieber
Lecture:  History Repeated

In August you will be treated to a program titled History Repeated. Watch America’s quilt traditions unfold before your eyes as we travel back through 130 years of quilting history. Discover the truth about fabric color in nineteenth century quilts and learn simple ways to make your reproductions look authentic.

Leah Zieber is a quilt historian and quilt maker from Temecula, California specializing in antique quilts from the nineteenth century.  Her reproduction quilts have been exhibited across the country and more recently published in Stars: A Study of 19th Century Star Quilts and In War Time:  A Study of Civil War Era Quilts 1850-1865. 

Leah has worked closely with several Southern California collectors cataloging, managing and independently researching their textile collections.  Her own collection of antique quilts and related textile items span one hundred and fifty years.  She shares her knowledge of American quilt history using her collection in lectures, workshops and special historical retreats.

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.
