Knitting & Stitching Show

Just a reminder that the Knitting and Stitching Show is taking place this week in the RDS from Thursday 30th - Sunday 2nd November.

October Meeting

The challenge for October was the log cabin block. This challenge was won by Fran O'Donoghue.

The theme of the October meeting was mini-demonstrations on finishing quilts for the November exhibition:
Gillian Sheehan gave a demonstration on hand quilting.
Claire Lynch showed how to put on a hanging sleeve.
Paula Rafferty showed to do machine quilting.
Holly Hogan showed how to attach binding.
Hopefully all mid-west branch members are hard at work finishing off their masterpieces for the November exhibition. Don't forget to bring your quilts to the November meeting for collection for the exhibit.
