Summer has begun!

The International Quilt Festival Of Ireland is just around the corner!  In support of the festival, Octagon Quilters of Westport have been busy stitching.  And look at what they have created!  A lovely window box of quilted flowers for the quilted garden.  Be sure you stop by the garden when you're in Galway this June and give their handiwork a closer look!

Cuilteálaithe Cois Fharraige Quilt Exhibition

Seanscoil Sailearna Indreabhán
(3miles west of Spiddal, Co Galway)
Official Opening Friday May 11th 8pm
Open on Saturday and Sunday 11am-4pm

Fáilte Romhat Isteach
Cuilteálaithe Chois Fharraige began in February 2006 after some patchwork classes in Scoil Sailearna for parents. This is our fifth exhibition and this year we are delighted to include two  quilts, from Brid and Teresa who are part of The Bruach na Mara Craft Group. We also have “Crossing the Divide” a wallhanging completed by participants in the Living Scenes Programme in the Presentation Convent in Galway. This is a programme that involves retired people and transition year students in an educational project together. Of course there are many and varied items made by members of our group as well. We hope you enjoy our work. We meet in Coláiste Colmcille on Thursdays and hold beginners classes each autumn.

If you are in Galway over the weekend why not call out to see us. The Seanscoil is the Old Schoolhouse in Inveran, three miles west of Spiddal on the right hand side of the road.
