This lecture discusses how to get out, stretch, and stay out of the box. How to learn new things, go new directions and take the road less traveled. How to get "Out of the Box"!
Mary Lou Donahue Weidman began quilting with her maternal grandmother. Mary Lou's father was an artist and musician and encouraged creativity and to look at the world in a curious, positive way. Painting was my Dad's number one love and he passed this along to me. After taking fine arts in school and selling both oil paintings on canvas and posters of girls in bikinis to fraternity boys, Mary Lou graduated and did layout work for the city newspaper, store windows, rodeo billboards, and other avenues in art. All of this with three small children in tow.

Our next Guild workshop, called PLAIDVILLE HOUSES with stimulating instructor Mary Lou Weidman, is scheduled at the Sally Griffin Center in Pacific Grove on June 30 & July 1.
Mary Lou loves to show quilters how to stray from the norm and how to have passion that overrides criticism. For her, it's about the journey and seeing what she can do next.
In addition to quilting for most of her life, Mary Lou has written 5 books, owns a pattern company, has designed fabric for 14 years, represents Bernina, and has taught all across the U.S., Canada, and in eight countries.
