|One of Nikki Foley's fabulous quilts. She just opened|
her Sewing Shed textile shop in Keel, Co Kerry.
Yesterday, our own Nikki Foley celebrated the Grand Opening of her Sewing Shed in Keel near Castlemaine. Not only does she have gorgeous fabrics for patchwork, but she in the local rep for Janome sewing machines (and they service them, too!) and she stocks textile paints, sewing notions, fabric dyes, and a wide array of embellishments. With her great prices and wonderful workshop room, she will no doubt be very successful! We wish her the best of luck. For more information on the Sewing Shed, contact 087-9924002.
Meanwhile, there's plenty to do to plan for the summer. With the help of the new Craft Coordinator, it is hoped that there will be some proactive, positive changes for artisans in the county. Please take a moment to fill in the survey www.surveymonkey.com/s/kerrycraft and send it back to firstname.lastname@example.org. It should not take long to fill out and the information will be used to assess the needs of the craft sector and put in place programs and policies that will assist us.
The next meeting of Craft in Kerry will take place on Sunday, March 27th in Keel/Castlemaine at the Sewing Shed. Directions will follow closer to the date.
