Time for another IPS meeting!
Hope you have all had a productive month.
I think with all the workshops, sales, and groups which meet regularly, we all have a chance to sew every day.
I find as much as the learning, I enjoy the company and chat of any meeting I have with patchworking friends, so for all our new members, do take up any opportunities to go anywhere to sew, they really are great people.
I would like to invite you to our next meeting;
SATURDAY 13th FEBRUARY 2016
At Sacred Heart Church Hall Western Rd CORK
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 terms, samples of sizes of fabric, (fat quarters, long quarters etc) cutters & notions to try out.
Shop. – Patchwork Plus with MOYA
Talk. – we are delighted that our speaker this month will be
ARLENE SHAWCROSS on “ STITCH TO ENRICH”
She will talk and demonstrate her techniques and bring lots of samples.
She will also be selling wonderful silk hand dyed threads.
BOM – Time for the reveal of the final quilt! Erin will be presenting setting options, and tips for construction.
SWAP YOUR STASH – This worked very well last month and do want to keep this going. 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. Simply, bring your scraps and take home fresh fabric
