Letter from our Chair, Anne Hardcastle re our next meeting Sat 5th October with Tomoni McElwee.

Hi Folks,

Lovely weather for sewing!At our meeting on 5th October we will welcome Tomoni McElwee who began making patchwork quilts when she moved from Japan to Ireland in 1998.  [More information on Tomoni at https://slaneyhandcraft.wordpress.com/ ].

Illusion Table Runner Sunday Workshop

A consistent prize-winner at the Tinahealy Show, Tomoni will enhance her talk by bringing her quilts with her. 

Places are available on both her Saturday workshop for a small Japanese drawstring bag  and Sunday `illusion table runner`.

Contact Mary Walker for details: marywalker42@hotmail.com . 

Please consider having a go at the Christmas Challenge `My Favourite Christmas Carol`   – an A4 size piece is not too challenging.

Hope to see you soon

The Patchwork Bags look adorable and are a wonderful way of using up scraps.

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.
