via Busy time for Northern Ireland Patchwork Guild — one day at a time
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.
