January 2023 Welcom

Happy New Year.

An opportunity to look forward with refreshed hope for the year to come.

But first, some sad news.  Heather Nicholl passed away, at home, just before Christmas. [https://www.funeraltimes.com/heather-louisenicholl529262687

While it is undoubtedly sad to remember those we have lost, we can, perhaps, take some comfort from recalling the pleasure we once enjoyed in their company.

Our next meeting on 7th January is in the parochial hall with the members demonstrations in the morning and a sewical in the afternoon.  So come along to learn something new and perhaps experiment with the new skills in the afternoon, or continue with your New Year project or work on your entry for `A Walk in the Park` our May exhibition in the Curve Galley, Bangor Library.  ( Entry forms and guidelines are available on NIPG website).

On 5th February we shall welcome Gaye Grant from The Fennel Shed. There are still some places available on Gaye`s afternoon workshop.P.S.  If you know anyone who hasn’t been receiving their emails, please ask them to email us at patchworkguild@yahoo.co.uk

Looking forward to seeing you on 7th January, in the mean time keep looking out for the first snowdrops of the New Year.

Best wishes

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.
