Quilting Exhibition at the Blasket Centre. Opening Friday, 22nd May at 6pm.

This year is the first official year of National Quilting Week. It will run from 1st - 7th of June every year from now.

To coincide with National Quilting Week, an exhibition was put together by Nikki Foley who owns The Sewing Shed which is a small business on the Dingle peninsula. Nikki is a quilter, author, teacher and quilt judge. She runs classes all year round at The Sewing Shed to anyone who wants to learn how to sew. She started teaching classes ten years ago and the Sewing Shed is the hub of patchwork and quilting In Kerry. People who have attended classes have always said its so much more than learning. It is a community and they love the social aspect of the shop.

Irish Quilters Showcase- Within the Exhibition we have 13 quilts made by some of the top quilters in Ireland. They were given the title of The Wild Atlantic Way and each person stitched their interpretation of the title. This Irish Quilters Showcase was organised by Paula Rafferty and Nikki Foley.

The exhibition is open daily from 23rd May to 12th June.
