January Meeting

Happy New year to you and I hope the Christmas break was an enjoyable one for you and yours.  To those who didn't manage to avoid the 'flu I hope things are improving.  I hope the thought of our monthly meeting next Saturday will put  bit of pep in your step. 

Here's some of the things we have to look forward to:

We' d hoped to have Angela Keane of the Lockout 1913 Committee to come and tell us about our participation in the 'tapestry'. Unfortunately Angela cannot come this Saturday but will be at our February meeting.

Our Charity Blocks. At this stage I think there are enough blocks out there being quilted. 
WE MUST HAVE THEM ALL BACK THIS SATURDAY JANUARY 12 so that we can assemble the quilt.
Please bring your blocks and we'll need some sewers and some to cut and some to hand sew on Saturday to bring it all together.  That will be after the meeting.

Charity Fat Quarters: At Christmas we suggested that rather than a shop we'd have an orphan sale.....all those fat quarters you bought in a rush of madness to the head and now you are wondering 'what was i thinking of...I can't use this.'  Well you mightn't be able to use it but someone else in the branch might. So bring along to DONATE any unwanted fabric and we'll sell them all off at €1 a fat 1/4 with all proceeds being donated to charity. That means bringing a couple of Euro to buy some fat 1/4 as well. 

Demonstrations/mini workshop:  Toni Foley and Veronika Spelman will be showing quick fabric flowers and a nifty pinwheels technique.

There are still spaces on the Terri McNeill Workshop in February running on Saturday and Sunday.

And don't forget all those different exhibitions calling on your creativity.

Hands across the Border: Flowers Fabric Fibre

IQFOI: too many to mention check out the last edition of your IPS Newsletter

Our own hospital quilts and your UFOs for the May meeting.

Is that enough to keep everybody going?

I'm looking forward to seeing you on Saturday in the bridge Centre,
Until then take care,

Anne Marie.
