September Meeting Recap

Apologies for the lateness of the post, I needed to leave the meeting early to catch a ferry for a holiday, and our internet in France was very slow.

On September 12, we met at the Sacred Heart Church on Western Road for the first meeting of the year.

Membership dues for the year were due at this meeting, €40 which goes to the executive board.  Due to insurance, you can only attend 2 meetings prior to paying for your membership.  After those two meetings, you won’t be covered by insurance anymore!

We’ve also increased our door fees to €4 for members, and €8 for non-members.  This increase in fees is a result of a motion passed by members at our AGM in April.

Our meeting started out with announcements from our chair, Jane.

We showed off the eight blocks of the Block of the Month that have been created so far, in two different colorways.

Then, Erin followed with a recap of the Block of the Month project we’ve been doing since February.  Then, using the projector, showed a step by step tutorial of this month’s block, the Spools block!

In future meetings we’ll be doing a step by step visual tutorial for the remaining blocks!

Maeve from Limerick Quilt Centre did a demonstration.

Sadly, I had to leave before the Show and Tell portion of the meeting.  Please, if you have photos I can use in a slideshow, please send them to our email address, corkips@gmail.com.

Our next meeting is scheduled for October 10 and will be our open meeting!
