Patchwork and Postcards at the GPO

At the end of October 2011 An Post Museum held a special exhibition called Patchwork and Postcards.

The exhibition was held to mark the 30th birthday of the Irish Patchwork Society (IPS), the An Post Museum had a few of the Society’s beautiful hand-made postcards on display. Posted both in Ireland and abroad, each card is a work of art linking creative people through the post.

Always glad to welcome new recruits to this rich and engaging past-time, the IPS intended to use the cards to raise money for the Marie Keating Foundation, the cancer awareness and support organisation.

For those who would like to support this work or get in touch with the IPS,  the addresses are:

Irish Patchwork Society
P.O. Box 45

Marie Keating Foundation
Unit 9, Millbank Business Park

The images below are just some lovely samples of the postcard that were made and that were on display in the An Post Museum.
