August meeting

We had a tiny but lovely group along for the August get together!
The weather was so gorgeous that we brought a table outside and stitched in the sunshine.

Our next meeting will be Saturday 28 September - don't forget to pop it in your diary!
Hope to see you there =)

Mega Craft Day #2 :: 31 August

On Saturday 31 August, Canberra Creatives are holding their second 'Mega Craft Day'.

The first mega craft day was a lot of fun, so here at Canberra Brown Owls we are excited to be participating again. This time we will not only have a stall with information for potential new members, but will also be offering creative workshops in carving eraser stamps.
This is a craft we've had a lot of fun with when we've tried it at our regular meets - it is super simple to do, but the results are amazing.

We are looking for volunteers to help out on the day, both to look after the stall, answer questions and let people know about Brown Owls, and also to help with the actual workshops.
It doesn't have to be for the whole day - even if you can pop by for 45 minutes or an hour that would be wonderful! Please let us know in the comments below, or by email, if you can help =)

There is more information about the day in the flyer below, and over at the Canberra Creatives blog.

We hope to see lots of you there! =)

August meeting: BYO craft

Hi there Canberra Owls!
Just a quick reminder that this coming Saturday 24 August is the 4th Saturday of the month, which means it is time for our August get together! We'll be meeting from 2pm, at the Downer Community Centre!

This month we'll be having a BYO meet again - this means you should bring along whatever you're working on at the moment and join us for a cuppa and some afternoon tea.

I'll be bringing my cross stitch, and am happy to demonstrate to anyone who is interested in seeing how this cute craft works.

As always we are likely to have a couple of owls along who go alright with knitting needles and crochet hooks, so if you're working on something and have a question, or would like a quick refresher after our begginners workshops a few months ago you might just find yourself in luck.

Don't forget to bring $5 for room hire and a plate to share for arvo tea if you'd like.

Please RSVP in the comments if you're coming along so that we know how many owls to expect =)

Hope to see you there!

Bron, George and Naomi
