4 new members were elected to the committee. The conclusion of the AGM was adjourned to the June meeting when the various positions on the committee will be decided.

There were a number of items for the show & tell. About 5 people brought in their pieces from the recent Joke Buursma workshop. See last post for pictures from the Joke workshop.

There were a number of beautiful English paper-pieced flowers which were made for a swap with Hungarian quilters.

Jean Kenzie brought in a beautiful quilt which can be seen below.

The challenge for May was "Double Trouble" where people would work in teams of 2 to produce a piece. Sadly, there were only 4 entries on the night (i.e. 2 teams), which was a pity as the entries were very interesting.

Hello everyone!
I just wanted to say a VERY belated thank you to everyone I met at the March meeting. I am still enjoying looking through the Irish Patchwork Society newsletters that were given to me, and I am almost ready to start cutting into the fabric that several people gave me.
I also wanted to let you all know about a new project I've started. I've set up a community page at, and I am inviting all of you to join in. I've set the page up to collect webpage links, via Del.ici.ous (a social bookmarking website). You can read more about it at my blog,
If you get a chance, I'd love to hear from you! I'm hoping to return to Ireland in the next year or two.
anyway, cheers all!
