Well, my time is finally up! This will be my last Letter from the Chair as our next meeting on
Saturday 9th April at 10am
Sacred Heart Church, Western Rd Cork
will be our AGM.
The bylaws state that a position on the committee can only be held for 2 years. Tracy Wardle, our amazing secretary, Colette Casey, our membership secretary and Olivia Sullivan our Branch Representative will also be leaving their positions. We have 3 vacancies needing to be filled, and we now have 72 members, so please think about it.
The AGM is only a small part of the morning, we are lucky to have our home shop: Moya from Patchwork Plus, she will also be giving us an interesting demonstration.
Erin will be presenting the second Little Bits Project, a zippered patchwork bag.
We will also have our raffle.
Show and Tell will again be a highlight of the morning, when we can all enjoy the amazing work our members are doing, don’t forget it doesn’t have to be finished, or perfect, we just want to see it!
Tea & coffee, and any refreshments you are kind enough to bring.
Don’t forget that the rules of the National Exhibition, ‘Evolution’ is in the latest newsletter, as well as the entry form. There are also articles on preparing quilt sleeves and bags for the quilts. The deadline for entry is May 31st!
The sign up list for our June workshop will be available at the meeting! The cost of the workshop is €35 and a €15 deposit is required to save your seat. Ruth Bourke will be our speaker for June, talking about Modern Quilting. After a brief lunch break, she will be running her workshop after the meeting. Her workshop is entitled “Traditional Blocks Made Modern.” Find more information in our blog post here. Be warned that sign ups are first come, first served, so if you want to sign up, please arrive to the April meeting promptly!
Please don’t be put off by the AGM, it is your chance to tell us if we are doing things right, or if you would like any changes. If you have a motion you would like discussed please let a member of the committee know as soon as possible.
Looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday !
