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.
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.
