Visit us at the Knitting & Stitching Show

The Irish Patchwork Society will be at the Knitting & Stitching Show in the RDS, Dublin from Thursday 30th October until Sunday 2nd November. We will have a stand where you can meet our members, see their work and see copies of our newsletter. We hope you will be inspired to join one of our 8 branches that meet regularly all over Ireland. Our diaries and branch locations will be available at our stand and on this site.

We will also have on display our 'Links' national exhibition from 2008. Pictured is 'The ties that bind' by Niamh Langan Kelehan which is just one of the many quilts that will be on display.

AGM & Conference Update

We are pleased to welcome the newest branch of the Irish Patchwork Society. The new South Western branch, which will be meeting in Keel, Castlemaine, Co. Kerry. was formally affiliated to the Society at the recent AGM on 18th October. Our Society now has eight branches in Ireland.

Sara Impey spoke after the official AGM business and enthralled with her explanations of her detailed and inspiring pieces.

Our members gathered at the end of the day for a photograph to be published in a Japanese quilting magazine on patchwork and quilting in Ireland.

Full details of the AGM and Sara's workshop will be published in the Winter newsletter.
