The recent sunshine has coaxed out some crocus flowers, but the current garden highlight is the perfume from the Christmas box (Sarcocca) strategically placed near the front and back doors.
Gaye Grant from the Fennel Shed (thefennelshed.ie) is our next speaker on 4th February. As well as her talk and workshop, she is bringing her shop, so a good opportunity for some retail therapy. To check for available spaces on the workshop please contact Mary Walker (email@example.com ).
Quilt Shop Bus Trip March 4th
Currently being planned. Sit back and enjoy a bus trip to Donegal to visit at least two quilt shops. There’ll be stops for tea & scones; lunch and hopefully a wee stop for a G&T. All in all, it will be an all day affair. Leaving Belfast around 9 o’clock. Further information as we get everything confirmed.
Meanwhile, we would be grateful if you could let us know whether or not you are interested.
On 1st April we will welcome Joy Harber ( nee Salvage) an award-winning quilter from the Cotswolds.(joysalvage.wordpress.com).

Fabric: any scraps larger than 2″ by 4″ with some of both light and dark values. Contact Mary Walker for booking.
In January, I mentioned that we are planning to tidy up our e-mailing list to include only members who have rejoined for the 2022 – 2023 year. So, if you havn`t rejoined, this is the last e-mail you will recieve from the guild. You can keep in touch by visiting the NIPG website or facebook page, and are always welcome to attend meetings by paying the visitors fee of £4.00.
June 3rd will be the AGM.
The Guild still needs volunteers for the committe posts of:
Chair ( I`ve had great fun but I AM stepping down in June)
Any committee member will be happy to discus what is involved in these roles.
Let us hope that the spring sunshine continues for a bit
Hope to see you soon
