News about upcoming meeting on November 12th

Our monthly meeting in November takes place on Saturday 12th at 10.00.

Guest Speaker: Agnes Warren will talk about technology for quilters. Agnes will look at the various resources online to help quilters (where to buy supplies, where to download free patterns, where to find forums and blogs of special interest to quilters). For those who are a bit technology-shy....this will be an easy to understand tour of the internet and a chance to ask all those questions you've been meaning to ask.

Shop: Theresa will visit from Limerick with her selection of fabrics, threads and other supplies.

Workshop: Our original planned workshop with Marilyn (appliqué) has been postponed as our meeting date is the same time as the Knitting and Stitching Show at the RDS in Dublin and so a large number of members will miss the opportunity to participate in the workshop. Instead we will have a quilting bee for all those working on panels for the International Quilt Festival of Ireland. Bring along the panels and we will all help each other with the zigzag stitching.

Notice: Jim West has been in touch to remind us that he is eager for individuals and groups to create 3D flowers for 'My Quilted Garden' at next year's International Quilt Festival of Ireland. See http://www.iqfoi.com/exhibits.html for more information.
