March 2011: Cecile Flegg demonstrates the use of Shrinkey Plastic
Cecile uses Shrinkey Plastic to create texture in her quilted bags. So she showed the group a quilted piece before heat was applied with the iron. The piece then shrinks causing the quilted fabric to scrunch up.
The Western Branch of the Irish Patchwork Society meets on the second Saturday of every month from Sep. to May in The Bridge Centre, St. Mary's Road, Galway at 10am.
Membership costs 40Euro a year and allows you to attend meetings anywhere in Ireland, exhibit with the group, participate in classes and workshops, borrow from the library, receive a quarterly national newsletter.....all that and make lots of new friends who share a common interest!
