Sydney Brown Owls – June Meeting

May 18, 2009

Our next Sydney meeting up is June 4th, 7pm til 10pm. Please RSVP here by May 28. Our workshop will be english paper piecing and we may have a gocco demo from Lisa, but this can’t be confirmed yet.

The venue is:
Centre House
178 Longueville Rd
Lane Cove.

English paper piecing usually refers to hexagon quilts, but don’t let that scare you off. You can do much smaller projects with hexagons like applique, pin cushions, brooches and a whole lot more.

Venue Details:
Centre House, Lane Cove
. It is an old brick house a few minutes walk from a bus stop.

Our meeting room is attached to the kitchen and has french doors which open onto a big deck. There are chairs and big tables, and we will be able to take tables and chairs out on the deck also.

There is a small venue hire for the centre, but this allows us to chat louder than we do at the bookstore. The cost will be split between attendees, at a maximum, it will be $5, but likely less.

Craft Materials
If you’d like to join in on paper piecing, please bring along the following:
– fabric scraps bigger than 2.5″ x 3″ in any colour or print
– scissors (a rotary cutter and small mat is tops too, but not essential)
– needles
– coordinating thread
– a spool of very bright dayglo thread will help (we’ll share if you have none)

Feel free to BYO Craft!

Please bring a cup along as well for tea or coffee, and let us know if you’ll be bringing snacks.

    Hi Brown Owls. I tried to meet you on Saturday at Finders Keepers. I tracked from your stall to Shellbyville and back to Bad Skirt, but it was insane. The crowd was so dense, so I tracked back to where I’d left friends chatting over a coffee. Sorry Brown Owls. Next time.

    Count me in too. I’d also like to learn english paper piecing. I’ll also have lots of show and tell from my recent trip to Tokyo. I’m happy to bring my Gocco for a demo if you don’t think there’ll be too much to cram into one night? How much is too much crafty goodness?!
