Sydney Brown Owls Meeting

February 3, 2009

EDIT – NO MORE RSVPS for this meeting, please! It is FULL! If you missed out on a Sydney membership – email me with WAITING LIST in the subject line. I’ll let you know when we start other chapters (which I hope we will!). If you RSVPd and you are not a member – you won’t be able to attend this event. But we’ll let you know about future larger events (like Brown Owls picnics) which you can attend! Thanks for your understanding!

The first Sydney Brown Owls meeting is scheduled for Thursday March 5 from 7-10PM at 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.
The first meeting will cost $5 (maximum, depending on numbers) as there is a small room hire fee. We will endeavour to get venues that do not have a cost for future meetings.
You can either bring your own crafting project or there will be kits available for purchase for $5 for beginning crafters or those who would like to do something different.
Refreshments will be provided or you can bring your own. Please bring a cup along as well for tea or coffee.
Please RSVP by Thursday 26 February by posting a comment on this post.
We can’t wait to meet everyone and get Brown Owls Sydney started for 2009!
*Edit: only the first meeting will be on a Thursday night, we’re looking to rotate the days of the meetings on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays so that everyone can come at least once!*
*Edit: as Lisa said, it is 178 Longueville Road, Lane Cove NOT 78. Thanks, Lisa!*

    Sorry folks. I won’t be able to make Thursday night meetings until Term II of the school year. I have a Girl Guide meeting to run Thursday evenings. Hope to see you all middle of the year.

    Hi There, SO excited about the first meeting, this is my RSVP to say I’ll be attending. Do I need to let anyoe know in advance if I would like to purchase the craft kit on the night?

    Hurrah for the Sydney Brown Owls. I’m looking forward to meeting many of you on the 5th and hopefully the rest soon after!

    Just a quick note – Jess will change it on the original post – the address for Centre House is 178 Longueville Rd (not 78). It’s across the road from Lane Cove Public School, in the block past the shops. If you’re getting public transport there are a lot of express buses from the city (it’s about a 15 min ride) that stop near the corner of Epping Road and Longueville Rd. It’s about a 5 min walk from there.

    Looking forward to it!

    Lovely owls – comment HERE if you will be needing a craft kit please! There will be only one or two extra for forgetful owls – so be sure to let us know!

    Also bring any crafty things you’d like to share or show off! Craft books and mags are always a GREAT idea – and it’s nice to share!

    I (Jessica J) will be coming, and am very excited! As Pip mentioned, there will be some kits for people to use. Please bring things to show and tell, I know I love looking at different crafty things 😀

    I’m in, I think I should have some things on the go then as well so shouldn’t need a kit.
    I’ll try not to be too shy either.

    hey again..
    I was looking for venues (for something else) the other day and came across this place http://www.innerwestcs.org.au/dic_space.html Not sure if it another potential venue? I haven’t been there, contacted them or really know anything about it but thought I would throw it out there anyway!

    I’ve been following the Meet Me at Mike’s and the Brown Owl blogs for a while and was delighted to see that there is a division here in Sydney.

    I’ve just recently taken up knitting, crocheing and sewing and would love some girls to meet up with and learn more from.

    Can I please be put on the waiting list for the Sydney division?

    Thank you in advance
