monthly meetings

Our branches hold monthly meetings, where we enjoy invited guest speakers, show-and-tell, demonstrations on a project, block or technique, challenges & swaps, lending library, visiting shops, not to mention the tea and banter.


We offer full- and half-day workshops  by visiting teachers and experienced members of our branches. Workshops range from the basics of patchwork to advanced textile art techniques.


In addition to branch exhibitions, the IPS National Exhibition is held every two years, as well as the Hands Across the Border exhibition, which is jointly organised by IPS and Quilters' Guild of Northern Ireland.
