All members welcome! ( New members welcomed on the day with the full €25 fee)
We look forward to seing many of you at our AGM on May 19th in Lucan Cof I church hall at 2pm.
We are ssk members kindly to bring along a piece of their recent work- for a “show/display table”, it is really lovely to see all the new and inspiraing work of our talented members and to learn from each other.
We are so lucky to have the textile artist Caroline Schofield attending and she will give a short talk on her work.
Another request we have of our membership is to participate in a collaborative felt-making project to make a colourful bunting.
Each member is invited to make a bunting triangle of 20cm top- 30cm length- see template, basically your triangle should fit on an A4 page… but all will be accepted.
The idea being that after the AGM, the committee will attach these all together, each one representing a 2019 member. These will then be used for decoration at events such as “Heritage day”, the “Knit & Stitch Show”, future AGM ( and can always be added to) as well as to jazz up the phoenix park studio and remind us all that Felt Makers Ireland is made up of valued individual members.
As always we are looking for Volunteers for the Knit and Stitch show to man the stand and they will receive free entry in return for 2 hrs of their time. Some of you have already put your names down, which is wonderful and much appreciated.
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of the AGM to sign up or can sign up on a spreadhseet we will have available on the day.
Again we are asking for members to volunter to join the committe… we have one committee member stepping down and one committee member stepping away from a formal role, becoming an ordinary committee member… therefore we appeal for volunteers. We want to keep you guild alive and fresh.
Any bakers out there? please do bring along your tray bakes to the AGM… cakes are always appreciated!!!
End… of announcement… BAAAAAAAAAAAAAH blah, blah, blah, BAAAAAAAAAAAH
