Letter from the chair.
September is here already! Time to get out all those projects we put away in June, thinking it was ages before we had to think about them again. I am thinking in particular of a Name Tag–our summer challenge. Erin has given us lots of support on the internet all summer, so we have no excuse. We have a new committee member, Susan Garde – welcome!- she has already proved very useful as our ‘local knowledge’ Colette has taken on the roll of membership secretary.
Our next meeting will be this Saturday 12th September at 10am.
It will be a great chance to catch up, show off all the summer work and get inspired for the winter.
Our shop will be Limerick Quilt Centre, and Maeve will be giving us a demo.
Please show your summer challenge with pride! The great prize will be a lucky dip, so everyone has a chance of winning.
The block of the month will be demonstrated by Erin, and we will do a recap of the blocks so far.
We hope to have a great Show & Tell, please leave all your works of art at the front desk.
It is subscription time again, the annual subscription which goes straight to the executive is €40 .
Eilis (has stepped in again for us) will have a separate table for subscriptions. PLEASE remember to bring this as it helps so much with administration.
It was agreed at our AGM in April that our door price would be increased to €4 and €8 for visitors. Still excellent value for a great morning of inspiration.
Tea and coffee will be provided, but again cakes etc depend on your generosity, and you have never let us down yet!
There will be our usual raffle.
Phew! Just in case you have given up the will to live, here it is in a nutshell:
