April: Guest Speaker, Nikki Foley

Our guest speaker for the April meeting was Nikki Foley from "The Sewing Shed", Castlemaine, Co. Kerry (http://www.thesewingshed.com/).

Nikki gave a talk about various patchwork and quilting gadgets and supplies that she sells in her shop and explained the differences between various products and how they work. She shared lots of tips along the way and it was very informative. Nikki will be adding some of these tips to her website, so be sure to check it out.
Nikki also modelled her patchwork jacket and told us that herself and her friend Jan challenged each other to make one and wear them at a recent show!

Nikki treated us to a show and tell of her work including this one which was exhibited in Canada this year.

Nikki's also been writing for Irish Quilting Magazine and did a series of celtic wall-hangings for each sign of the Zodiac.
