The winners of the annual RDS Crafts Competition will be exhibited at the Museum of County Life, Turlough Park, Mayo until the 15th October. Margaret and Anne Marie visited it last week and highly recommend a visit.
Congratulations to IPS member Mary Palmer who won the Award of Excellence, the William Smith O'Brien Perpetual Challenge Cup and the 1st Prize in Contemporary Patchwork and Quilting for her piece 'The Long Note in 12/8 Part 1' (detail photo above). Mary also won the 1st Prize in Traditional Patchwork and Quilting for her piece 'Woven Paths'. And she also received the Irish Patchwork Society Award. A fantastic achievement and well-deserved.
