Launceston Brown Owls – Quilt for Kiva

July 4, 2011
Hi to all Launceston Crafters!

It’s July Meeting Time.

When: Tuesday 12 July, 7-9pm
Where: Nanna’s Cafe, 7 Coulter Court, Launceston (Park outside by driving down driveway next to Toyworld off York Street, OR Park in Brisbane Street and walk through arcade)
Refreshments available for purchase.
What: We are still working on our quilt for Kiva (http://www.kiva.org/). We are going to raffle the quilt in November -December to raise money for this amazing organisation. For the quilt each Owl is asked to complete 1 x 4 inch square and 1 x 8 inch square. The squares should be in black and white with one other colour of your choice. As for each square … You can embroider it, piece it, applique it, embellish it … do what ever you like to it …. and then they will all be quilted together and the completed masterpiece sold, with proceeds going to a charity of our choice (TBA). Never fear if you are not a quilter and it remains as a dark art to you … there are plenty of quilters in our group who are willing and able to lend a hand! If you would like to start on your squares … bring them along.

Or else bring your handheld project. There are still plenty of Granny Squares going … so if you are at a crafting loose end there are a whole army of crocheters ready to lend a hand if you want to have a whirl. All newcomers more than welcome! We are a friendly bunch! Haven’t been for a while? We would love to see you.
Please RSVP in the comment section here or over at our facebook page is here

ALL welcome!

Yours in craft
Gemma and Georgia x
