Western Branch visits 'Branching Out' at the Botanic Gardens

Our bus left Galway at 8.15am on Saturday 9th July to travel to the Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin for the National Exhibition.
Tea, coffee and buns were very much welcomed on arrival! Then we had plenty of time to see the exhibition which included a great variety of techniques, sizes, colours, styles, themes, fabric choices. There's something to appeal to everyone here.
Lunch in the restaurant was delicious. And to finish off we stopped at Liffey Valley for some shopping before returning to Galway. A great day out!

These are just some of the pieces made by Western Branch members which were included in the show.

A catalog of the exhibition was for sale (5Euro) and includes photos of all the quilts.

Fabric postcards were sent to the exhibition from all over the world and these are also displayed.

The exhibition runs until 2nd August. If you cannot get there some of the work will be shown again at the IPS stand at the Knitting and Stitching Show at the RDS in Oct/Nov 2011.
