February Guest Speaker: Linda McMulkin

Our own Western Branch member Linda McMulkin gave a talk at our February meeting. Telling the story of how her interest in sewing developed through dress-making before she came to patchwork.

It was during a holiday in Ireland that Linda and her husband Peter decided they would come to live here. The idea for her fabric shop and workshop, where she gives classes, grew from the fact that she had found it difficult to source fabric when she first arrived. And so "Rags for Linda" (www.ragsforlinda.com) has grown from strength to strength over the years since she arrived in Ireland. And we consider ourselves lucky to have such a resource here in Galway as Linda is always ready to source whatever we ask for. Linda will soon add long-arm quilting to her talents and we look forward to seeing the results!

Linda showed us a great variety of quilts during her talk and only some of them are featured here.
