So our wonderful summer finally draws to a close and we look forward to a new year for the Mid West Group IPS.
We have a few dates coming up for your calendar:
- Our first meeting is on Friday, 14th September at 7.30pm at the Baptist Church.
- Villiers Sewing nights start on Wednesday 19th September from 7 to 10.
- Sewing Saturday on 29th September in Villiers from 10 -4.
- The National AGM is on 6 – 7 October in the Castletroy Park Hotel. Form attached. We will be accepting completed forms and payments (including cash) in the September meeting.
Please keep in mind the upcoming Challenges
- For the September meeting, a postcard on the theme of” What I did this summer” incorporating the kit handed out at the June meeting. They will be voted on in September and we would like to retain these for display at the National AGM.
- For the AGM, a 18” to 19” finished block on the theme of “STAR”. Please bring this with you to the AGM. You are also welcome to bring this for Show and Tell in September.
Our Speaker for September meeting is Assumpta Lydon from the Cork branch. The shop is Roisin McManus “Quilt Yarn Stitch.” Don’t forget your Library books to return. We have more than 20 new books added to our stock over the summer. We look forward to all the Show and Tell that you have been busy with over the summer.
The membership has been raised to 50 euro, the first increase in 14 years. We will accept 40 euro as a partial payment on the night, and apologize for short notice.
Looking forward to a great and productive year.
