Calling all Melbourne-ish Brown Owlers – Wool for Women

May 22, 2012
Hi there
Sue here from Brown Owls Melbourne 3000 CBD branch.
One of our lovely owls, Stacey, is involved with a project that I thought you might be interested in. Stacey will be at the Melb 3000 gathering next Tuesday 29th May (see previous post) for more information or collecting donations. Very look forward to seeing you there.
over to Stacey:
Hello everyone,
As a fellow crafter, attending Brown Owls 3000 from
time to time, I wanted to let you all know about a program that Aware (a
small Melbourne based not-for-profit that I direct) is running in
Cambodia this June – Wool for Women.

Partnering with Dorsu, Wool for Women will provide skills and
teacher training to women in Kampot, Cambodia. Aware will complement and
add to the amazing work that Dorsu is doing to establish sustainable
and creative livelihoods for these women, through crochet and wool
crafts, in an area where education and employment opportunities are
scarce.

I am hoping to clear out your cupboards for you, by taking any spare
wool, crochet hooks, buttons and sewing in needles to Cambodia with me,
turning them into something really positive.

I will be
attending next Tuesday’s brown owls 3000, if you are able to donate
anything that would be AMAZING, and i can take it with me from there.
I’m happy to chat to you all about it on the night!
