Greetings to NIPG from Brenda in California

imageHappy New Year to you all!

Dear Members and Friends,

I am writing this in Long Beach, California in 80F heat so I don’t know what the weather is like in Northern Ireland!

I hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas and are looking forward to a new quilting year.
The next meeting is on the 7th January in the Parochial Hall. We will have four
demonstrations by members and two get-to-know-you tables.

There will also be a charity table in aid of the Chairman’s charity ‘Reconnect’. There will be lots of books, some fabric and ribbons etc. Please bring any fabric etc you no longer want. It helps whoever is managing the table if you price your articles for sale.

A Big Reminder –

Hands Across the Border

We are hoping for lots of new Quilts for this exhibition which will be on show in Northern Ireland in June 2017 in the Island Centre, Lisburn. The theme this year is Aurora. The quilts should be no larger than one metre square. Quilts need to be ready for the March meeting. We will post the information and form on the web site.

Best wishes,

The NIPG, as we are affectionately known, welcomes anyone interested in any aspect of patchwork and/or quilting, in whatever form. Beginner, advanced or in between. The Guild usually meets on the first Saturday of the month in the Parochial Hall of the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, Cultra, Co Down, Northern Ireland. Contact us for more information. Meetings open around 10.30 am with tea/coffee for which we charge a small visitor's fee. This is quite informal. The meeting proper begins with 'housekeeping' - various announcements relevant to our members. Often we will have engaged a speaker of note, which is sometimes followed by a workshop/ sew-in. Full day workshops are held on Sundays. We have had speakers and teachers from USA, Germany, Holland, England, not forgetting the excellent people who are locally based. Contact us or Facebook for further information.
