John O'Donnell (from the Singer shop in Waterford) was the speaker and he gave great tips on taking care of your sewing machine. I think everyone picked up at least one new tip.
The challenge for September was "The Seasons". Unfortunately, there were only 3 entries submitted on the night. Entries were from Ann Bradshaw, Claire Lynch and Gillian Sheehan. Gillian's piece of the houses was voted the favourite on the night.
There were a number of pieces presented for the "Show & Tell" so there were some people who were busy sewing over the summer. Paula Rafferty showed 3 quilts that she longarm quilted. Maeve Meany also showed a quilt that she has made for her brother's 50th birthday. It was made with a 60 inch block!!
Valerie Shortt showed a quilt that she helped an 11 year make. A guest on the night (Fran O'Donoghue) showed a number of fantastic bags that she had made for her daughter. And Kate O'Donoghue showed two quilts that she had made (one of these quilts is shown below).
