Hands Across the Border 2019.Ruby Serendipity moves to St. Mary’s Cathedral, Kilkenny – 17th to 21st July 2019. 10.00 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. daily
After a successful stay in Flowerfield, Portstewart, the Hands Across the Border exhibition moved to Louth County Library, in Dundalk.
After spending time in Dundalk, the exhibition has now reached the Charter Room in Saint Mary’s Cathedral, Kilkenny, from 17th – 21st July.
Here are a few of the exquisite quilts which were seen in Flowerfield. Congratulations to the outgoing 2019 – 19 Committee for putting on an amazing exhibition and pulling everything together. It certainly doesn’t happen by magic, but through a lot of hard work. NIPG Committee: your turn to take it easy now.
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.
