On Friday 31 August you can enjoy:

Beginner's Special - Table Runner: from 10AM-1PM for €30 hosted by Mary Curtis.
Hand Quilting: from 2Pm-5PM for €30.

John O'Donnell will also be on site for machine servicing.  How incredibly convenient!  That's a great idea.

Handbag Workshop: from 10AM-4PM for €50 hosted by Annette Ronan.  You will walk out of the class with a completed project!
Patchwork Clock: from 10AM-4PM hosted by Nikki Foley for €60, including a full clock mechanism.  Again, you will leave this course with a finished project.

The Science in My Quilt winners will be announced.
