Felt Frenzy and AGM

In the Church of Ireland parish Centre Lucan village

On Sunday May 8th 2011  – 14.00 to 16.00

 

Feltmakers Ireland is holding their AGM on the second Sunday in May. Many of our members have shops and will have stalls at the AGM offering plenty of browsing and shopping opportunities. We will also have a “frenzy” of felt demonstrations ongoing throughout the afternoon.

The AGM offers all members an opportunity to have a say in how the organisation works. If you would like to submit a motion to the AGM please send it to the Chairperson Suzanne Phelan – phelansuz@eircom.net. All suggestions and comments are very welcome. We would also like to invite nominations to the committee and we urge anyone interested in taking part to please consider putting their name forward. All motions and nominations must be received by the end of April. Please wear (or bring along) some of your fabulous felt creations.

Looking forward to seeing you on May 8th

Angela O’Kelly

A big thank you to Angela O’Kelly who gave a workshop for our members last week-end in Collins Barracks – she is a fantastic teacher (as well as a very talented designer and jeweler).  There was such a huge interest in the workshop that we had to plan a second one, which Angela very kindly agreed to, and so there are 12 lucky people who will be attending the next on on the 16th of April.
