But before the first trigger was pulled, the night began with must-read poet Niamh MacAlister charming the audience into applause with a series of poems about growing up in Dublin — one about her hands becoming her mother’s hands. Then up stepped master-performer Smith (curator of The Glór Sessions) who performed a starkly candid poem that gripped the packed house. The mic was then handed to the night’s trio of all-star arbiters, including writer/actor Mark O’Halloran (the writer and co-star of Adam & Paul), actress Kelly Campbell (One Hundred Mornings co-star), and stand-up comedian/conceptual artist Miriam Elia (Sony nominated for her BBC Radio 4

If church pews have material on them, do they have to match the color of the carpet?

Question by SandyLou: If church pews have material on them, do they have to match the color of the carpet?
My mom has been a member of a small Baptist Church forever…and with remodeling done lately there has been discussion as to whether or not the cushion on the church pews need to match the carpet! Some say it has to match, some say they don’t think so. Is there a right or wrong answer?

There’s probably no right or wrong here; it’s taste, and since it’s for a church it should be conservative.

The carpet is probably a tight weave, industrial-type, maybe with flecks of different colors mixed in a base color. If you could find an upholstery fabric that coordinates well with the carpet selection, and hides the wear well, you should be okay. Maybe a small scale print, or just some synthetic with flecks similar to the carpet.

I’d also stand on the pulpit, and look down at the pews, and think about how the selections would look from up there, but that would be after you have a couple of swatches…and they should be good sized swatches.
