    Fabric swap: Similar to the 2 1/2” squares swap that the branch did in 2015, we are going to hold a fabric swap of 5” squares or charm squares.

    You can get 8 charm squares from a length of fabric so we hope to swap 80 squares (this may need to be revised when we finalise numbers!). If those interested can email midwestpatchwork@gmail.com or text Ruth on 086-8211105, we can work out the maths and let people know how many squares will be needed.

    We hope to be able to use some of Gillian Killick’s fabric that her family kindly donated to Loretta for the branch use and be in a position to collect the fabric squares in our November and December meetings. Fabric will be sorted over the Christmas and given back in our January meeting with a date of June for a finished Quilt top!

    The Mid-West Branch are planning a workshop in November with Paula Rafferty on a Japanese method to make a Cathedral Windows piece using your sewing machine.

    Please email midwestpatchwork@gmail.com or text Ruth on 086-8211105 to reserve a space on the workshop. 

    Once we have names and an idea of the numbers that want to attend, we will firm up a location and date.

    Due to government Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to have an in person meeting in October so we will have a Zoom meeting instead.  We will have small & fun quick makes, Show and tell and the monthly challenge "Autumn".

    After having a whole year on Zoom, we are really looking forward to getting together in person and are hoping to do so in November. The committee will be evaluating the space available to us, in Kilmurray Arts & Heritage Centre, in October and will advise members the soonest we can. In the meantime, we will be meeting on Zoom again in October.

    Show and Tell needed for October meeting: Please send photos of your patchwork and quilt items to midwestpatchwork@gmail.com or text Ruth on 086-8211105.

    The challenge for October is Autumn. We would love to see any pieces you have that would fit the theme, any size, any colour!

    Villiers Nights: It was decided at our branch meeting in September to wait until January to look at sewing nights outside of the main meeting.

    Door Fee: Last year, the branch expenses were paid from our savings. This year, we are asking members to resume paying the door fee for meetings online and in person. To minimise cash handling, we are requesting a bank transfer to the branch account of 20Euro to cover the 4 meetings Sept-Dec.

    When paying by bank transfer please add your name to the payment and pay to: BIC AIBKIE2D
