The Flying Geese Quilt Guild was formed in 1989 by a handful of women who wanted to learn more about quilting. They began meeting in individual homes, showing each other new quilting techniques, and learning from each other. This group has grown to its current size of approximately 200 members. Our members have a wide range of skill levels ranging from learning how to quilt to professional quilters. The guild provides many opportunities to learn and have fun. We offer workshops, quilt speakers, retreats, trips and classes.
