Hello Members!

It’s time for our November meeting, happening at

 10:00 am
November 19, 2017 at the Sacred Heart Church on Western Road. 

The committee has been working hard since the last meeting and we have a LOT to share with you!

First, we’ve hosting two shops at our meeting, Lismore Quilts and Sew Crafty Fabrics!  It’s a great opportunity for you to get supplies to finish the projects you’re working on to gift over the holidays.

We’ll also be hosting the members of the Midwestern Branch of the Irish Patchwork Society!  It’s a great opportunity to meet and network with the members from Limerick.  We’ve asked them to bring some projects to show and tell to inspire us!

Our November Block of the Month will be debuted.

Our December challenge will be announced.  We’re looking forward to seeing what you make!

During our social time before the meeting, we’ll also have a slow stitching demonstration.  Be sure to check it out!

The sign-up sheet for Tomomi McElwee’s class, the Drawstring Patchwork Bag, will be available.  This workshop will be happening after our January meeting, from approximately 1 pm to 5 pm.  The cost of the workshop is €30.  Remember that sign-ups are first come first served!

There are a few books left from the Library book sale.  These will be available for €2.

We will have our usual raffle.

Be sure to bring your projects to show off during Show and Tell!  We’d love to be able to inspire the Midwestern Branch as well with our makes!

Tea and coffee will be supplied, we look forward to seeing what cakes and other refreshments you can provide.

After the meeting, we’ll host the Midwest Branch for an Open Sew Afternoon!  For Southern Branch members interested in staying, we’ll have lunch available for a small fee.  **Note, depending on demand for the open sew afternoon, be prepared with a hand sewing project just in case there isn’t enough room for your sewing machine!    I’ll be bringing a quilt to sew the binding on just in case I won’t be able to work on my sons’ quilts!

See you all on Saturday, please feel free to email me if you have any questions!  corkips@gmail.com
