Glenada 2017

“What goes on in Glenada stays in Glenada”


But, but, but girls we really do want to know about the projects you started, finished, or moved on to another level.

Hints have come our way, looks and sounds as if you were all industrious, with reports of great fun too.

Well, we understand that we’ll probably never hear about what you got up to outside of working hard on quilts and bags and other projects. That doesn’t stop us really, really, really wanting to get some photos of your achievements, however small or large.

A huge thank you to Adrienne for organising this great outing this year and every year.

Ruth’s machine almost has steam coming out of it. No time to look out the window.
Jayne’s bag just makes you feel happy. Very practical too.
Linda Hamilton says: “Wonderful weekend at Glenada, meeting new friends, getting lots of tips and help from the lovely Guild ladies. Thank you. See you soon!”

Sparks flying from Anne’s machine, while Esme uses a beautiful quilt as an ironing board cover!

Wondering about Glenada – set in Newcastle, County Down at the foothills of the Mournes. A great retreat and conference centre.

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.
