Craft boards

Irish Examiner - Farming - - COUNTRY LIVING -

Clare guilds are likely putting fin­ish­ing touches to craft board en­tries around now. They must pick five items from a se­lec­tion of eight: Aran knit­ted tea cosy, cro­chet col­lar /neck­lace, brooch (not knit or cro­cheted), card show­ing iris fold­ing, cross-stitch small Christ­mas or­na­ment, rush­work tea-pot stand, sewn Christ­mas card holder, and item of guild’s choice. ICA prides it­self on pre­serv­ing/per­fect­ing old and new crafts, so this com­pe­ti­tion is ea­gerly an­tic­i­pated and keenly con­tested each year. It’s kept fresh by in­tro­duc­ing at least one new craft each year — in 2018 it’s iris fold­ing.
