The 14th of October meeting was our open meeting which meant that anyone who wanted to call in and see what we do, could come in for free and enjoy the Demonstrations, Chat and the wonderful show and tell!
We also had John O’Donnell from Waterford and he serviced the sewing machines while Ladies browsed the shop which was Patchwork Plus with Moya.
Our Demonstration Ladies were:
Mary Hynes doing the Block of the Month which included a star block and a Presents Block. She had handouts for these and will have a selection of all handouts at our next meeting ( November 18th now as Knitting and Stitching Show the second Saturday). We will be giving a ‘Viewers Choice’ prize in December for at least 4 of the 6 blocks done!
Mary O’Regan did a Demonstration on her Overlocker or Serging. She was showing how to finish off the material edges and her work with the Days for Girls.
We also had Frances McCarthy showing us an Appliqué technique and her Dying work.
We were so lucky to have Penny Barnes with us on the day as she was visiting Nicki Foley in Kerry and doing a workshop in Aghada with Moya. She gave a wonderful talk and show and tell on her Quilting Journey. She donated two books to our Library that has featured her beautiful work! She also showed us the Quilt that the workshop was about and those who had signed up had a wonderful day in Aghada just before Ophelia hit!! I hope everyone got over it safe and sound.
We then had our own show and tell which as always was so interesting and awe inspiring. We finished with our raffle and we would like to thank all that contributed… prizes, helping hand, the Library Ladies and all who brought Goodies!!
Happy Halloween to everyone!
See you on the 18th of November at 10 in the Sacred Heart Church Hall, Victoria Cross.
