A Magazine Feature!

Have you seen the newest version of Galway Now magazine?  The September/October 2012 edition is available in shops today in the Galway area.  If you are out and about pick one up.


What will you find inside?  Well, this!  This gorgeous article by Evie Gaughan on page 45, that highlights Irish Quilting.  You'll see a mention of the fabulous local teacher Ester Kiely, one of my favorite Galway shops Pippablue and our very on Modern Quilting Guild of Ireland.  I was incredibly pleased to see a photo by Sarah of Fairyface Designs and a discussion of the craftiness on her blog!  What a great feature, Miss Sarah!

(PS - I know nothing about Furniture Connexion. Please don't take this as an endorsement)...


But wait!  What is this over here on page 46?  Yes!  It's Love on the Blocks!  My very own Love on the Blocks published in a magazine!  Evie was also kind enough to highlight Fluffy Sheep Quilting (the shop) as well as the blog.  Super!  What a fantastic lift to the day!


Evie, thank you.  Thank you so very much for taking the time in your Wellie Diaries column to highlight the creativity and enthusiasm of our Irish quilting community.  You summarized it nicely in your article, "Quilting is really so much more than learning a skill, it can help develop friendships".  Perfect.
