WELCOME BACK EVERYONE ,we had a great first meeting and a brilliant turn out , we would like to welcome our whopping 6 new members, we have had a busy summer with all the preparations for the AGM on the 1st &2nd of october we are very excited about this. 
during the meeting we had the visit of Kelly Fogarty the executive chairperson of the IPS, and had lots of exciting show and tell ,was a very busy meeting for her to attend .
We brought in our on going Bee Blocks projects that we did over the summer months and also bags and pincushions we made for the Knitting and stitching show also in october . Lola Leacy our secretary gave a brilliant demonstration on a basting gun , another little tool to save our backs ;) and we had some fantastic show and tell from members that have been working over the summer .
Finally we did the hand over of the Minerva cup , that Maya last years winner gave to LInda this years winner , very exciting indeed .
