June recap

Our last meeting before the summer was extremely enjoyable.

Our speaker was Heidi Wieshniewski, who took us on a very interesting journey through her textile history.

She has made different items at different phases of her life and she showed many of them: from an exquisite jacket and lovely dresses to miniature embroidered landscapes, from quilts to appliqué portraits and many more.

Looking at her lovely work was a real treat:

See more photos in this slide show. From her first quilt to lockdown projects, and appliqué landscapes inspired by the views around her, and much more:

Members’ Show and Tell followed:

Marie showed us her double wedding ring quilt. Stitched mostly during occasional travels over many years, she recently finished the top. Mary Palmer’s quilting magic finished it off brilliantly.

Our next meeting will be held in September, with a visiting speaker and a workshop in the afternoon! And with a refreshed committee there are quite a few things planned for the following months… So keep an eye on your emails for news from your branch.

And don’t forget that next Saturday is the national AGM in Dublin! Please let them know if you want to attend (see emails), they would like to know numbers as soon as possible…

Wishing you all a sunny and creative summer!
