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 : 


For Conference 2013, the BASIC  weekend package will include :

  • 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.

 Please Note :- Sunday Lunch is NOT included.

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.

We look forward to seeing as any of you as possible at Conference 2013, and please remember that each class has a limited number and that it is on a first come basis, with members having priority.
