All entries to be handed up by the 6th February to the two Branch Representatives as the next executive meeting is on the 10th February.

Quilts have to be in Dublin by the 10th February - no late entries will be accepted, due to time needed to catalogue and photograph the quilts.

The exhibition opens in the National Botanic Gardens in Dublin on Wednesday February 25th at 11.30am. The exhibition then runs until the 14-15th March, and the Botanic Gardens are open every day.

January 2009 Meeting

The theme of January's meeting was "BAGS".

Nearly all quilters end up making at least 1 bag, so there were plenty of bags to view at the January meeting!

Gwen brought a number of bags to show and also had a number of hand-outs on how to make some of the bags. The picture below is of Gwen showing someone the inside of one of her bags.

Meg Kenny brought in this beautifully embroidered green bag.

Anita brought in her blue bag for show & tell. This bag was made over 20 years and still looks perfect.
