First, the Southern Branch of the IPS would love to wish you and your family a Happy Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Now, to the recap!

Jane started with a few announcements.  These included:

  • There will be a need for committee members in April, as over half of the current committee will have to step down.
  • Olivia O’Sullivan is now on the national committee, there is a need for a new branch representative to the national committee.  Please let Jane know if you’re interested.
  • In January we’ll be introducing a beginners table, where members new to quilting can learn the basics.  We’re also planning some more YouTube videos to include with this focus!

Erin then did a recap of the past and current block of the month.

This month’s block is the Flying Dutchman!

The Christmas sale that happened on December 3 went very well!  It was announced that nearly €1,500 was raised for ACT!  Congratulations ladies.

Thank you Moya for your fantastic demonstration!

Next, the Christmas Challenge winner was announced:  Sandra Jansen!  Our members were given a few circles of fabric, and were challenged to make anything they wanted, as long as they used at least two of the circles of fabric.

Sandra told us she was inspired at our last meeting where Aine Foley from Lismore Quilts demonstrated a table centre.

Here’s a slideshow of all of the entries.  Great job everyone!!

Everyone had a fantastic time with the Table Quiz!  Thank you Ann for your hard work in creating it!

On a personal note, I’d like to thank everyone at the meeting for being patient with my boys (and the little bit of noise they created).  We had a last minute issue with lack of childcare, and I had to bring my toddler twin boys to the meeting.  I did my best to keep them occupied and quiet!
