February 26th, 2017 at the Hunt

Today four of met up for some craft time and chatter in the cafe of the Hunt Museum.

Unfortunately, I was so busy knitting and nattering that I neglected to take any pictures of our works in progress.I’ll make up for that oversight next weekend.

Our venue for Sunday, 5th March is Zest Cafe located in the Limerick City Gallery of Art.

We’ll be there from the usual time of about 2ish to about 5 ish.


This jolly purple giant made us all smile as we made our way in. It’s part of a clean up Limerick campaign.

See you tomorrow.


Hickey’s Craft Demonstration

Are you going to be in Limerick city today (Saturday, 17th May)?

Will you have some free time between 2pm to 4pm?

Do you fancy doing something for free?

If you do, then you might want to pop along to Hickey’s on Cruises Street to join a demonstration of quilting techniques.

You’ll see the above notions and fabric strips turned into:

  • A quilted coaster
  • An oilcloth placemat
  • A cafetiere cosy

The demonstration is being given by one of our members, Lou, in association with Hickeys.

The demo tutorial sheets are free and there’s no pressure to buy anything (but good luck resisting the temptation!).

Have a lovely Saturday whatever you get up to.

Happy crafting! 🙂

We’ve been tweeted!

Change of plan due to Storm Brigid

Hello all,

We had planned to meet in The Hunt Museum Cafe tomorrow. However, the area around the Hunt has been hit by flooding and navigating the roads around the area may be difficult or impossible tomorrow. So, we’re going to meet up in Zest Cafe, Limerick City Gallery of Art instead. It’s on higher ground away from the Shannon so it should be okay.

We hope that you and yours are warm, dry, safe and sound in this stormy weather.

The Tipperary Knit & Natter group is a new weekly crafts gathering, taking place in Tipperary Town. We meet on Wednesday evenings at 7pm at Dalton House on Emmet Street. Its an informal gathering- we sit around, with a pot of tea and some nice biscuits, and we each work away on our own projects, such as knitted jumpers, crocheted dog jumpers etc! Some of us are learning how to crochet too, with helpful tips from those who are more experienced. We chat away and the night flies by!

New members are always welcome. Although we meet at 7pm, you can feel free to call in any time up to about 9pm when we usually pack up our needles and wool, and head away home.
