There will be two one-day workshops on offer following the meeting:

A day's adventure into the world of texture. Using soldering irons, hot air guns and free motion embroidery, you will combine plastics and paints to make a stunning panel for framing or mounting.
Monday 8th October: 3D Freestyle Applique
Learn how to make a quick quilt background and then add the free-shape applique pieces to make an individual hanging.
Additionally, the Strand Hotel will offer sewing space on Sunday, so bring your current projects to work on!
The fee to attend the AGM is 25 euros including attendance at the lecture and your lunch. To attend the day long work shops as well s the AGM, there is a 65 euro fee.
