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! 🙂


1st Limerick SnB Meet-Up of 2013

Hello 2013!

It’s about time our group had a blog of it’s very own, isn’t it.

It seems apt to begin our blog on our first day back meeting up as a group.

Here’s the skinny on us.


We like rainbows. They’re chock full of different colours, just like our group is chock full of different personalities, craft types and skill levels.

Our ongoing aim with this group is to provide a warm and encouraging space for people interested in crafting to share space, experience and enthusiasm. None of us are experts. We are all hobbyists who enjoy creating pretty or funky or usuable items with our hands.

It’s lovely to see projects started, tips exchanged, help given and happy crafty times shared.

If you’ve never been to our group and would like to come along then please do.

We are always delighted to meet new people.

Some of us are shy. Some of us are outgoing and chatty. We are all friendly though.

Sometimes we’ll seem really animated and as if we’ve known each other for years (that’s the joy of craft).

Sometimes we’ll seem utterly absorbed in whatever we’re working on.

Regardless of how we seem, come on over, say hi, pull up a chair and join us.

If you feel shy coming alone then come along with a friend. We’ll give them a warm welcome too.

That’s why we meet up in a public group so that we can meet other people who want to use their hands to create.

We meet in Zest Cafe at the Limerick City Gallery of Art on Pery Square in Limerick City.

Today, Sunday 6th January, we’ll be in Zest cafe from 2pm onwards.

It’s a lovely, bright and cheerful space.

You can us on Facebook.

We’re also on Ravelry.

So we’ll see you soon then?


Marvellous :D

Happy crafty New Year!!
