The Wicklow Patchwork Group first met in the spring of 2014 and has been meeting every month since. Today, we have over 100 members largely from the Wicklow, South Dublin and Wexford areas. We meet in a friendly atmosphere on the third Saturday of each month, including the summer months, in the Community Centre in Newtownmountkennedy, Co. Wicklow.
We are a group of likeminded people whose aim is to share our love of patchwork and quilting among ourselves and with others. We welcome members of all standards, from the interested beginner to those who have years of experience and are more than happy and willing to share their knowledge and wisdom with all!
At our meetings we have guest speakers and demonstrations done by our members. We also hold regular workshops for members to improve their skills and learn new techniques. At each meeting tea and coffee is available and there is plenty of time for chat and meeting other members and visitors. We also have an extensive lending library that members can use.
