‘Ruby’ Celebrations Continue

The visit of Kaffe Fassett & Brandon Mably was the highlight of our Ruby Celebrations. If you have any stories or photos, we would be glad to have them, although our Facebook has actively published them.

Kaffe’s lecture at the Ulster Museum was an huge success, and the Workshop at Windmill Fabrics was great fun, but our Ruby celebrations continue. While all our attention has been on the Kaffe Fassett visit, we do have really exciting workshops in April and May.

Words from our chair, Paula

Good Morning All

With all the excitement of Kaffe Fassett’s visit, we have Workshops in April and May workshops, which to date have been overlooked.

Workshop Requirements are available here

Few people have signed up so far, this is disappointing, after  all the effort which has been put in to arrange a varied programme.

At the April Meeting on 6th April, Mary McCormick will be on her desk early to give you all information. We do not want to have to cancel any of these

Hands Across The Border
Mary McCormick and I visited Flowerfields last week to organise the forthcoming Hands Across the Border exhibition. We are very impressed with all the suggestions for a Grand Opening on May 4th, at 3:00 pm, for our 40th anniversary year.

We are happy that Mary Peters will be our Guest of Honour at the Opening. Light refreshments will be served there. Local craft and sewing groups and other people of interest locally  are being invited. I hope we will have a good turnout .

Please bring your finished pieces to April meeting, where Janet and Clare will be on hand to take them from you. Clare has printed off a sheet for you to fill in  and put with your work. Please bring in a cloth bag or roll with your name on back of the quilt (pinned on is fine) and on your hanging pole. I don’t think I need to say that a hanging sleeve must be sewn on the quilt.

We are looking forward to a lot of great work.

At the usual Saturday Meeting, there will be the tea and coffee, as usual bring your own mug. Hope you enjoy the morning and the Afternoon workshop, which has a small requirements list. Don’t worry if you are missing something, everyone loves to share   Paula

About nipatchworkguild

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 https://www.facebook.com/nipatchworkguild for further information.
