CANCELLED Saturday Meeting 3rd March & Sunday 4th March

Hello to All NIPG Members

Unfortunately, after much effort, Janet McCallum is  unable to make the journey across. Janet was determined to be here, and really did her very best, but between changing airports and examining all the options, she has been forced to submit to the inclement weather from Siberia which has disrupted British travel so badly.

Though many parts of the North have little or no snow, other parts are snowbound.  Therefore, the decision was made to cancel the entire weekend. Please tell your friends, who might not access their emails often, (or not at all), or who don’t ‘do’ Facebook or the Internet. It’s important to get the word to everyone, so please help.

Paula, our Chair is particularly keen that no-one makes the journey to Cultra and be disappointed.

It’s a weekend to stay indoors, keep warm and providing your electric hasn’t given up, you could sew, sew, sew.

Belated Happy St David’s Day to all our Welsh friends. Photo taken on the 1st March 2018.

Leaving you with this text message received yesterday from a quilter who lives just outside Dublin. In case anyone doesn’t know – all Dublin flights have been cancelled until tomorrow.

Good morning, sitting here snug and warm indoors. More snow last night on top of a foot from Tuesday night. So, I’m forced to sew, sew, sew. We have a full tank of oil, plenty of fuel for the fire and lots of food. Plus candles should the power go and wool applique projects if candle light permits.



Ladies, we’ll be in touch about rescheduling Janet etc. Meanwhile take the Kildare Quilter’s advice – and snuggle down with your favourite project.

Happy Quilting.

    Thank you for sending this.   The Quilters Guild must have given you my e mail  ? I am pleased I have found them as  I am offering 2 IRISH  quilts for their Museum. I inherited them from my Irish grandmother  – who was Lucinda Gervan  from Ballygawley . They must have been made by her ancestors in 1800’s –  as she married and came to London 1890’s. She was a wonderful lady , but I am unable to find any records about her  –  in the Record Offices of N. I. The Quilts are outstandingly good.  These pics hardly show the brilliance of the old silks. I have enjoyed them for years , but they must find a good home  – now I am old  ! Would any one be interested in trying to trace more about her and her family.?  Or through their embroideries  ?  One was a Dr.  and one a JP.  !  A very well  known family Thank you    –     I am      —      Mrs June Smith      Springhead      Church Rd     Blewbury     OX11 9 PY      phone  01235 850619.
