We had a great meeting on Saturday with a first Visit from Quilt,Yarn,Stitch all the way from Tuam! Everyone was delighted with the quality and variety of the shop and thankfully Roisin is willing to come again .
We also got to try out our new toy… hands free microphone, it really worked wonderfully and we are very grateful to Siobhan’s Husband Len Stone for researching the best one for us.
Our Speaker was Tracy Wardle on her experience doing the city and guild and we got to see her wonderful work. We all enjoyed her stories and were in awe of her work as she graciously passed around her pieces. What a Joy!
We then had our Show and Tell and everyone turned out the most fabulous pieces as usual.
Ita Doolan had a fabulous Quilt tool to show us in the form of two different size rings with two knobs to hold while quilting, taking the pressure off your hands trying to move the material around as you Quilt.
I would like to remind everyone that next month is our AGM and encourage members to consider joining the Committee. We need at least 3/4 more people to help keep the Committee running properly.
