About April

Our March meeting was held in Waterford and was an extended day of sewing. We enjoyed ourselves with fifteen in attendance. Thanks to everyone who organised and those who attended!
April is just around the corner. We have been invited to join the South Midlands IPS branch in Kilkenny, at 11am on 21 April.  For location address, please contact Pauline Beglin.
We will be honoured to see and meet the talented quilter Frances Sawaya in addition to the creative Rebekah Patterson. Rebekah will be presenting her creations, hat and headpieces; she both creates and teaches in workshops.
Marina Malone has an invitation from the St Louis Stitchers for a small number of quilts for their Mi na Bealtaine celebrations in May.
Our monthly meeting for April will be held in New Ross on Wednesday, 25 April at 7:30pm.
Fr. Richard Lawless will also join us. He is inviting us to participate in the Enniscorthy Pugin Quilt Exhibition in July. Niamh will have a copy of the membership contact details for everyone in the audience!  Sherry has a pattern for a members’ badge which we may make for the May meeting.
Last, but not least, the shop at our April meeting is Patchwork Plus (Moya Geraghty).
We hope to see you there!

Greetings from Wexford

Our patchwork branch of the Irish Patchwork Society comprises quilters in the South East of Ireland, generally covering Wexford, Waterford and adjacent counties. If you live near or happen in the area, please do join us!

We are fortunate to have 20-30 great members who come out every month to share and talk about patchwork and quilting.

Our March meeting is an exception and will be a full day of sewing on the 10th of March in Waterford. Email for more

In our February meeting, we were honoured to have the St. Louis Lacemakers visit and share the great crochet, knitting and beading crafts.
The room was filled with ooos and ahhs.
Special thanks to Evelyn Shannon for bringing her shop to our meeting.

Members Annette and Eileen shared the great patchwork artwork that they completed at the recent retreat at An Grianan earlier in February.
There are always plenty of laughs and fun when our members come together. Below is Annette modeling another's show and tell.
What will you bring for show and tell in April?
