Hello all! Yikes it’s been busy here at Camp Brown Owl! We are only a couple of days away from our Melbourne meet! Yay! I know there are HEAPS of girls coming – but don’t be daunted, this is a mixer (not a craftalong) – and we will be gentle! Then next Melbourne meet will be announced very soon – it will have limited places – and will be first in first dressed allocation. Stay tuned for that.
A few things I wanted to go over with you all:
If you can – bring some excess crafty things – we will be packing up things for the Re-Stash a Crafter arm of Handmade Help. We especially need – fabric pieces, little SCISSORS, needles and cotton, nice yarn (scraps are fine!), zip-lock bags. Could you comment below if you will be able to bring any of these?
I need : someone to print out the crafty Handmade Help tags to go into the bags – please let me know in the comments if you could do this on Monday or Tuesday and bring them along – we are planning to make about 100 packs up – so it will be maybe 50 pages maximum to print (maybe less!)
You will also receive your membership tag on the night – and interstate and international girls will either have their memberships now – or be receiving them next week – phew!
If you are going to arrive early for dinner – perhaps comment here – I think there are 3 or 4 girls making that plan – sounds like a great plan! If you arrive later – walk through the main bar/eating area and hang a right turn at the end – ahead of you is the back room – we’ll be in there!
We will have name tags on the night – and prefects will be mingling and chatting and introducing all night – so don’t be shy. If you are terrified come up and hang onto my skirt for the night – I don’t mind!
We will have a ‘Restash‘ packing station and a ‘Membership’ station (also known as trestles!). When you arrive – check in and let us know who you are – then go get your membership stuff – grab a drink or coffee from the bar – and then you can mingle or help to pack.
Okay – that’s all for now – don’t be scared – it’s going to be great!
PS – The Brisbane Girls met today! I wonder how they went!!!!?
