4th DECEMBER : Sunday Session with Carmen Draghici in our new premises – CIE Hall, Inchicore

Carmen specialises in hand made accessories and clothing. You can see many of her designs on Felt Joy Studio (hit translate for English). Ithink she may be bringing some to show us too!

           Carmen will be making “A CHRISTMAS CUSHION” with us. We hope to start about 10.15 as the usual 2 hours will be tight for this project – Lorna might allow us a “short” extension at end.
