Monthly Meetings

Due to the on-going Covid-19 measures, it looks very unlikely that we will be able to hold our monthly meetings again before the Autumn. When we do meet again we will be required to exercise social distancing.  We will keep you notified of any changes as they occur and also bring you up to date with any WPG News.

In the meantime, while we are all staying at home, why not continue to send us photographs of all the projects you are working on so they can be shared online in our Quarantine Quilts Virtual Show & Tell – webminder@wicklowpatchwork.ie

Stay safe and well!


 

“Quarantine Quilts” – Virtual Show & Tell

As we are currently unable to attend our regular monthly meetings and workshops, and as a means of staying in touch, we thought it would be interesting to share some of the work you have been doing during the past few months.  These photos will be posted in the Gallery section  – ‘Quarantine Quilts’!
If you would like members to see your work, please email some photos of your current projects with a title or brief description to
If your quilt is too large to photograph properly, just photograph a section or some of the detail.
We look forward to receiving plenty of quilts for our virtual Show & Tell!

In the meantime, please stay safe and well.  Enjoy sewing and hopefully we will have a wonderful Show & Tell when this dreadful virus is finally behind us.

 

Cancelled Workshops – It is hoped that the Emmaline Retreat Bag workshops will be rescheduled at a future date.

 

We will keep you updated on developments and any other news relating to Wicklow Patchwork Group
