January Letter from the Chair

IMG_1931

Happy New Year!

I do hope the floods have not affected too many of you, although I know from experience how worrying it all is .

To brighten and cheer, our next meeting will be on

SATURDAY 9th JANUARY 2016

At Sacred Heart Church Hall Western Rd CORK

10am start.

We thankfully have an increasing number of new members, and to this end we will be having a table of BACK TO BASICS, to include list of term, samples of sizes of fabric, (fat quarters, long quarters etc) cutters & notions to try out. We realise that some of our members have forgotten more than we will ever know about quilting, but we have to keep this wonderful, addictive, ever changing, skilful hobby alive for the future!

Shop. –  Apple Tree Quilts

Talk. –   Sinead from Apple Tree Crafts

Raffle

BOM   –Erin will again professionally demonstrate this months block. I can only tell you it involves foundation paper piecing.

SWAP YOUR STASH – This is a new idea to kick start the New Year. Simply fill a 3 litre bag( medium sized plastic bag) with the minimum of 1 yard of scraps, no smaller that a 5 inch charm square please.

Put a bag in …. Take a bag home

Tea & coffee  provided but the cakes & goodies depend on your generosity, you have never let us down yet!

Definitely a meeting not to be missed.

Please be prompt.  The hall is hired from 0930 to 1330 and it makes it very difficult for the committee if we run late.If  you have and comments or suggestions, please feel free to speak to a member of the committee.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Best wishes

Jane
