Visiting the Southern Branch

A big thank you to the Southern Branch who welcomed us to their November meeting for an amazing Show and Tell and an afternoon of sewing.  A good many of us carpooled to Cork and had a really fun day, meeting with friends and making new ones, sharing quilt making stories and tips and even got some stitching done on the day!  Here's a few photos of the Cork ladies show and tell and to see more visit the Southern Branch's blog here for a slideshow and recap of the day.  Thanks so much to you all and hope to return the favour and visit again soon!

News update

Our next branch meeting is on the 2nd December (a week early due to Christmas!)  The challenge is to make something using the One Hour Basket pattern by Kelby Sews.  We will have a Secret Santa swap too so please bring something about 5Euro wrapped to swap. 

We have started a Pay it Forward box where you can leave unwanted fabrics, craft magazines etc for other members.  It is proving a big success!

We are looking for everybody to make a 6" block (6 1/2" unfinished) that we can use to sew together into a branch banner and will be collecting blocks at our January meeting or earlier if you have them!

We are continuing our demonstrations in Hickeys this month with Ruth showing a Dresden plate cushion on the 12th and Louise making mini makes for Christmas on the 26th.

Our branch has been invited to the Southern Branch in Cork on Saturday 19th.  Please let Grania know if you haven't already done so if you plan to attend!
