The Guild had a poignant talk on Monday 13th February from Ruth Murray a quilter with Hearts Creations in Butlerstown on the Bonnets Project which was set up in

memory of 304 women convicts from Waterford who were transported to

Tasmania in the 17 - 18th Century.

Each bonnet was embroidered with the woman’s name and the name of the

transportation ship and they are part of a bigger project called Roses from the Heart which started in Tasmania. We were given the details of age and occupation of the women we were remembering as well as the reason for their sentencing. It was going back on a time in history which was very harsh and a lot of discussion took place at the meetings.

The bonnets are now part of the exhibition in the Central Library in Waterford. A talk in the Granville Hotel on March 14th at 8pm by the founder of the project, Dr Christina Henri from Tasmania, will be special.

The annual coffee morning to fundraise for the Cancer Society will take place in the Fr Rufus Halley Hall on Sunday March 12th at 11am. Everybody is welcome.
