Published: Saturday 06 August 2016 Age: 3 yrs

NIVAL is delighted to announce the recent deposit of the institutional archives of the Irish Patchwork Society.  Spanning the Society's 30 year history, the archives document their creative activities and administrative history in printed documents and thousands of high quality colour slides.  

A project to arrange and index the Irish Patchwork Society archive has been carried out in NIVAL by Rodney Breen, archivist with Eneclann, Archives and Records Management Company. 

The catalogue listing will shortly be added to NIVAL's growing collection of online databases of information on our Special Collections.  This project was made possible through a grant from the Crafts Council of Ireland and the generous support of the membership of the IPS.
