The evenings are getting darker earlier and Halloween is in the air which must mean it’s time for the annual Knitting & Stitching show in the RDS. The event is always a very busy time for Feltmakers Ireland. We have a stand on the balcony for the duration of the four day show with ongoing feltmaking demonstrations, an exhibition of work and sale of fibre and feltmaking kits. We also teach at the Learning Curve workshops each day. The stand is successful as a result of the numbers of memebrs who volunteer to do a three hour stint – so if you are available any of the days and would like to get involved (it really is great fun) please give Colleen a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would also love if members would participate in the exhibition of work at the stand. This year all the felt pieces on display will be all shades of blue. We thought that “Felting Away the Blues” would be a good motto t get us through the recession. If you would like to participate please contact Suzanne to arrange the collection/delivery of your work, her number is 0851146391. The show runs from Thursday 29th october until Sunday 1st November.
