On Sunday April 18 we’ll be learning how to make yo yos! These little things of beauty and fun are perfect for appliqueing on your skirt, making quilts, making hairbands, necklaces … anything! I have been making lots of them lately, and they are so addictive!
We’ll be using the Clover Yo Yo Makers. You can often pick these up at Spotlight, but I’m also going to do an order over here to save on postage. Just let me know which Clover Yo Yo Maker you would like by noon Tuesday 6 April, and I’ll order it for you and you can pay me at our meeting. You can order more than one if you like (I know I will!). If we all pick something different, we can hopefully have a really good play at Brown Owls. Just bring along your fabric, needles and scissors. We will provide you with strong hand quilting thread to make your yo yos with.
Brown Owls meets from 1.30 pm to 4.30 pm at Downer Community Centre. Bring along $6 for room hire, a small plate of something for afternoon tea (optional!) and your money for your yo yo maker (I’ll let you know how much beforehand).
As always, please RSVP below to make the lives of your prefects easier when it comes to setting up tables and chairs.
