May Meeting Recap

IPS Southern Branch met on 13 May, with main speaker Moya Geraghty on “Big Prints and how to use them,” the Sewing Shed shop in attendance and a great show and tell from our members. Erin, our outgoing chair, presented the latest block of the month and was in turn presented with a quilt made by members of Southern Branch in gratitude for her work for the branch during her time in Cork. 40 shades of green to take back to the USA!
