Brown Owls Brisbane March Meet

March 22, 2009

Brisbane Owlets met this morning for a good 3 hour session of stitching, eating and chatting. Our craft-a-long project for the day was embellished totes. Beautiful fabrics emerged from bags, patterns and books covered the table and the whirring of sewing machines filled the air…
… ok, ok, it wasn’t all that peaceful especially when Em’s chatty machine started competing with the gurgling sound of the air con :)

There was a hand stitching station,

a sewing and pressing area,

floor space for cutting

and lots of tote-a-long patterns and inspiration.

We don’t have any totes to show off yet but we will keep you posted on the progress!

A big thank you to the owls who brought along home baked goodies, I think I ate them too quickly to photograph them but there were vegan mini carrot muffins, melting (and I mean melting!!) moments, chocolate slice, super crunchy cookies and dip and crackers.

Note to Brisbane Owls: the date for the next meeting has changed to Sunday 26 April, a post will go up to rsvp in the first week of the month.

Prefects are also looking into a group outing to the Stitches and Craft Show, we’ll keep you posted! Suggestions for future meetings are always welcome, just leave a comment with your ideas.

Until the next meet up, Happy Crafting!

    LOL, I wouldn’t say your machine’s crap Em, it’s just got a bit of a noise issue!

    Oh, I’m so bummed I couldn’t come to this one. I was busy sweltering at a 4 year old’s birthday party :(
    Looking forward to the next one though 😀
