QGI Conference/ Retreat 2013

The Quilters Guild of Ireland invite you to join us at our annual retreat and conference!
If you are a current or past member of the Quilters Guild of Ireland you should hopefully have received a letter from us inviting you to attend our annual retreat in Dublin next March.

This year we are delighted to tell you the Crafts Council of Ireland are supporting our retreat with a generous grant. This is wonderful news for us and means we can offer classes and workshops at a much reduced cost.  Robyn, our retreat coordinator, has put together a magnificant weekend package for us at an amazing price so we do hope you will join us.

8th  to  12th March 2013
Bewleys Airport Hotel, Stockhole Lane, Dublin
 
 
with 

 
International teachers

Marsha McCloskey



 
 

and 

Tracey Pereira



The 2013 Conference/Retreat will begin on 

Friday 8th March 2013  and continue through to Tuesday 12th March.  
 
 
This year we applied for a Grant from the Craft Council of Ireland and were successful, so together with some additional Guild funds, we have been able to reduce the costs of the classes considerably.


But please note : 

 
THIS FUNDING MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN FUTURE YEARS!

  • Friday and Saturday Nights Accommodation on a twin share Basis including Breakfast. Saturday Workshop with lunch and teas
  • Saturday Dinner with after dinner Talk by Marsha McCloskey
  • Sunday morning Show and tell and morning tea
    • Afternoon Mystery Project

and Free sewing space will also be made available for those who just want to sew their own projects.

Lunch will be available if required  at your own cost.
 
 
If you purchase the Basic weekend package, we are offering the Friday  class, and the Monday/Tuesday class at a reduced rate. 
 
Single room supplement is also available, along with extra night’s accommodation if required.
 
Parking will cost €8  per day (so sorry – we tried to get a deal but couldn’t)
 
Friday evening will be the Annual General Meeting.  Please note that this meeting is VERY important. If you are a member of the QGI  you will have received an AGM notification with Motions the Committee propose to put to the meeting.
