December 11th - Holiday Program
Speaker: No Speaker

Our December holiday program will be very special this year. While we will still celebrate with our usual holiday treats, holiday show and tell and Secret Santa Exchange, our special focus this year will be on the wonderful gift that Mary Whitehead was to our guild.

 For those who did not know her, Mary, who died ten years ago, was an enthusiastic member and officer of our guild. She was also an extraordinary teacher in whose classes so many people learned the basics of quilting. Her own individually designed quilt patterns are still influencing new generations of quilters.

 Mary, the math teacher, was instrumental in using mathematics in in the design and construction of her quilts. As a special treat at this evening, Mary's daughter, Tamsen McGinley, a professor of Mathematics at Santa Clara University, (yes, some things do run in families) will give us a short presentation of mathematics used in quilting and especially how her mother used mathematics in quilting.

 So, those of you who have made quilts using Mary's patterns, please bring them to add to our holiday show and tell.

 Bring holiday treats to share and a Secret Santa Gift if you wish. There will be gifts for all as we celebrate this festive time of year.
