Hello Sydney Owls! Just a little advanced notice about our early August meeting on Wednesday at Berkelouw Bookstore in Leichhardt. August’s theme will be embroidery. We will share books, learn new stitches and talk about ways to combine them.

Wednesday, 5 August
Berkelouw Bookstore, upstairs
Norton St. Leichhardt.

If you’d like to do embroidery, here are some things that you might want to bring
– embroidery floss
– sampler to work on. The prefects will bring spare sublime stitching patterns and Jodie’s vintage kids, if you are stuck for ideas. you can get these at cost from them.
– needles
– small scissors
– small hoop (though, some Sydney gals have been embroidering hoop free. Maybe they can teach us how!)
– finished embroidery and books for inspiration

If you aren’t keen to do embroidery or have another project you’d like to work on, you’re free to BYOCraft. As always, bring any show and tell. Berkelouw is a free venue, but you may want to bring a thermos or water bottle as the cafe will be closed. Early birds can meet at the pub across the road for a bit of music and happy hour grub before crafting.
