Happy New Year from the Southern Branch!
We had our January meeting on the 9th, and had an amazing attendance!
Jane started the meeting with a few announcements.
- Committee members will be needed in April, the majority of the current committee will have to step down then.
- The finally tally for the Christmas sale was €1725!
- Patchwork Plus will be having a sale January 23rd and 24th from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
We set up a few special tables this meeting as well.
The first was our Back to Basics table:
It was an opportunity for newer patchworkers to get a closer look at some of the tools that can make patchwork easier.
We also had our Swap Your Stash Table:
This will be in our next few meetings, and is an opportunity for you to rejuvenize your scrap stash! Just bring a 3 L bag of scraps. Bring a bag, take a bag. Scraps should be at least 5 inches square.
Erin then made a presentation for the final block of the Block of the Month, the Wheel of Fortune!
We had another amazing Show and Tell this meeting!
Mary brought a quilt that was inspired by the Wild Atlantic Way:
Assumpta shared a quilt she made using a Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorial, the Dresden Sunburst:
Catherina shared one of her first quilts, made with scissors, and hand quilted!
Joanna brought a few quilts to share. Two were quilts for her grandson:
And the last was a Christmas table runner.
Finally, Ailbhe shared two quilts. The first was her first quilt which included pieces of her wedding dress:
and a quilt that she had made for her son:
Then Apple Tree Crafts gave us a demonstration on an easy quilt to make with Half Square Triangles.
Here are a few more shots from our meeting.
We hope to see you at our next meeting on February 13th!
