Nationwide and Craft in Kerry

Cathy Teahan's beautiful
apron.  Who has to be
dowdy in the kitchen?

Well, Nationwide has come and gone and are we any different for it???  The publicity for the group was wonderful and I am hoping that new members find their way to us via our blog here and on Facebook.  I know that CIK members Garry Marcham, Cathy Teahan, Sharon Crandall, and Emer Leogue are very appreciative of their profile on the show, as well as others that received camera time and no credit.  Pat Lawless had his furniture designs shown several times and Kathleen Flannery's beautful jewellery was shown.  We had a glimpse of Linda Hannafin's and Colleen Bowler's ceramics and Fiona Crinnion's colourful bracelets and necklaces that were a big hit on the day.  Roll on the next showcase!

We will be finalizing our calendar for the year at our next meeting, so watch this space for more Craft in Kerry events.  For sure, we will be in Killarney on May 19th at the Malton Hotel for the Kerry Tourism Showcase from 12-8pm. It will be free to the public (and free to exhibit, for that matter) and a place for all Kerry people to familiarize themselves with what is on offer for visitors and residents alike.  See for more information.  

As for our next meeting, it will be on Monday, May 30th at 730pm in Dingle.  We hope to have our new premises for the Handmade Sessions ready to launch, so it will be time for a party!  We will be demonstrating a sampling of the Handmade Sessions and also celebrating a bit.  If you have any interest in making handmade products, come along and have a look and see what we have been up to!

Cathy Teahan's floral tote--take me to
the beach!
You might have seen Dragonfly Cottages featured on Nationwide last week.  Her gorgeous soft furnishings were a big hit.  Here is another apron in the most gorgeous spring colours.  I agree with her 100% that you don't have to look dowdy in the kitchen!  As she says herself, they are styled after Marilyn Monroe's dresses.  Now, whether you wear anything underneath yours is your business alone! There are also new designs in her tote bag range for spring. We are in the throes of summer now, so watch this space for more activities that are coming up...
