Anne Marie Horan of the Strategic Planning Group set up by the IPS Executive briefed us on proposed changes to the IPS Constitution. These will be voted on at the AGM in June. Contact a member of the local committee if you’d like to review these points.
Our speaker Paula Rafferty joined us from Limerick with a sample of her own and students’ work. The breadth of styles was stunning, and of Paula’s work, the series that built on each other were intriguing.
We got a sneak preview of the Irish pieces of “World Wide Whispers” –a project taking place in 5 countries, 12 quilts from each, each maker received a photo of the prior month’s quilt as starting point. No photos I’m afraid – these will be on display later this year.
