Not embroidery, but I'm so proud of my grandson Zane (12) who qualified for World's (Irish Dance Championship). He placed 4th in Washington DC which qualified him. We are so proud of him!!!

hehehe... I'll order at least a set. LOL... My daughter does the embroidery on the Irish things. However I think she bought this vest, but I know she is working on another for him...She did bling out the tie. LOL...

Thank you Chris. He is a very intelligent young man too. He wants to study Aerospace dynamic Engineering. His goal is to go to the same Military school his dad went to first. :) We'll see...You know how things change...lol

Bless his heart, he has worked very hard on this. The competition is pretty tough for the boys, let alone the girls.

Ment to say if you are looking to fly over try www.aerlingus.ie or delta, they seem to do the cheapest direct flights to Usa from Shannon and dublin airport here. Hope this helps!

Awww, Bettina, I know she would enjoy learning to dance like that. My youngest grandson Ethan (7) started this year. He was the late bloomer of the 4 all others began Irish dance when they were 4 and 5. ;)I would love to be able to go to Ireland to watch. We will see. I might have to raise money locally as a non profit, hehehee. Not really, I'll just save up as best I can. They each have to raise their money for the worlds, so he performs at different places and people donate money to help the cause.

ansalu by ansalu 05 Dec 2010

When is the Championship? Ireland is not so far away for me and I often get the NL from Air Lingus with special offers for flight to Ireland ;o)

keeponsewing by keeponsewing 05 Dec 2010

Bettina, it is in March 2011, I would truly love to go, maybe, we will see.:)

ansalu by ansalu 06 Dec 2010

So you have to be quite buse on etsy to earn the money for the flight to Ireland :o)

Thank you. These are pretty tough competitions, so we will see. If you go to youtube and type in worlds irish dance2010, you can see the one dance that everyone does at the end of the competition. It is the only dance they normally will let you post because it isn't a copyright dance.

World's will be in Dublin Ireland. Not sure if it is televised or not. Usually they aren't because of the copyrights on the choreography. Pretty serious stuff these Irish dances are. :) My granddaughter dances tomorrow so we will see what happens. She is the one that was in a Riverdance production in Charlotte this past September.
