Traditionally, our January meeting is given over to our AGM and this year was no different from previous years. More unusually for us was the venue, we decided to rent the kitchen in MY Place in Midleton. A great space, created for the community and somewhere we hope to utilise again.
The last guild meeting of 2019 was extremely busy, with lots of business to get through so we’d have the time to make at least one Felted Fairy.
Traditionally, there are no guild meetings during the months of July and August, instead, we take a break for the Summer.
With so many of our members keen to work on their Explorations in Colour Tapestries, it was decided that our May get together would be a working meeting.
Each member brought their tapestry weaving project and Tish kindly agreed to be available to give advice to anyone who requested it. In addition to the sale/swap/contribute table, there was also an opportunity to swap yarn for the 8×8 tapestry squares.
There aren’t enough hours in the day of late and even when there are, it would seem my broadband connection has other ideas. That being said, our June meeting is fast approaching and I’ve realised I’m way behind with posts here.
So, travelling back in time to April, I wanted to quickly share the events of our meeting on the 27th, where we looked in more depth at dyeing with onion skins.
On the beautiful sunny morning of March 23rd, fourteen members of the guild enthusiastically gathered to explore more about spinning and weaving, including a demonstration on joining two wefts ends.
Our February meeting was held in Bishopstown Library on Saturday, 16th February 2019.
It was a very busy meeting and we were thrilled to welcome several new members. Is it too early to celebrate that news about our group is beginning to spread?
The guild first meeting of every year is given over to our AGM and was held in Bishopstown Library on Saturday, 19 January 2019, followed by a meal in The Wilton Steak Bar & Carvery.
The AGM provides a great opportunity to recount the guild’s achievements in the previous year and lay out some plans for the coming months.
Well this is a little embarrassing 😳
I’ve just sat down to write a quick post about our January AGM and have realised that I forgot to post about the fantastic workshop we had with Katherine Walsh back in October 2018.
Maureen, one of our members led a wonderful workshop on Pin Weaving at our September meeting. Ten members were able to make it on the day; Heather, Gerda, Frances, Mary, Olywn, Tish, Maureen, Lora and her friend Lucy, and Margaret.
