September: Show and Tell

The 'Ready Thready Sew' group in Tuam (which currently comprises 12 members) held their 3rd annual exhibition during the Tuam Arts Festival in August. They brought along some of these quilts to show. The quilt above is one of 3 quilts made from blue fabrics donated by group members. This one was made by Sally and will be sent to Our Lady's Hospital for Sick Children.

Sally also made this 'Pinwheel' quilt using any turquoise fabrics donated. This quilt will be used to raise funds to send 15-month old Amelia Filipczak from Tuam to China for stem-cell treatment.

The photo above shows the main community quilt made by the Tuam group. The quilt was raffled on 7th Sept and raised over 1100 Euro for the St. Vincent de Paul Society.

Vera has been working on a number of smaller items which will be for sale as a charity fundraiser in the Octagon quilter's upcoming exhibition in Westport. Here she shows a Sunbonnet Sue cushion and a small wall-hanging.

Vera also made a fabric memo-board for sale of work.
