From our chair:
We are gearing up for next meeting on SATURDAY 11th APRIL at 10 am. Please do not let the fact that this is also our AGM fool you into thinking that this meeting will be less than fun! It still has lots to offer with a Speaker, Block of the month, Raffle and more! – see below. And don’t forget to sign up for the Irene MacWilliams workshop(s) in June; spaces are limited and filling up fast.
Two of our committee members have served their term and we would love to welcome new members onto the committee – no pressure! – we’re a lovely bunch and the more the merrier.
We have been so fortunate this month with many courses, workshops and weekends away in the Cork ‘Quiltiverse’, that I hope we have lots to Show and Tell! If, God forbid, any of these masterpieces are not quite finished, panic not….we are having a ‘Social Meeting’ in May with extended Show and Tell.
Our SHOP will be Moya Geraghty of Patchwork Plus
This month is our AGM. This will only be part of the meeting, so please do come along. Anyone wishing to stand for the committee, or nominate someone to stand will be most welcome.
Our SPEAKER will be Sandra Jansen, who will give a talk on Improvisational Piecing
Erin will demonstrate the third instalment of the BLOCK OF THE MONTH
There will be our usual SHOW AND TELL – please log your quilts with Eilish.
We will have our RAFFLE
As usual we can all help ourselves to tea and coffee – please put away your own mugs……oh yes, and bring cake!
