Don't miss our Society's biennial weekend retreat at an An Grianan, Termonfeckin, Co. Louth.  Five workshops are on offer covering techniques for beginners to advanced textile artists and quiltmakers.

  1. Handpiecing a Millefiori Block with Emer Fahy
  2. Realistic Applique with Ethelda Ellis
  3. Star Bright - Making Star blocks with Aine Foley
  4. Elements of a Modern Quilt with Ruth Bourke
  5. Creating your own Batik with Bernie Dignam
Following on the sucess of the House Block Challenge at the AGM some years ago, we have decided to do something similar for An Grianan.  The challenge for 2018 is to make a 16" finished block on the theme of a nursery rhyme or fairy tale.  Any technique, any colour may be used but all blocks must be quilted.  Blocks will be completed into wall hangings for the branches to donate to a local children's charity or centre.

To register please see the Autumn 2017 magazine or contact your local branch.
