Canberra Brown Owls :: pincushions & needlebooks

Hello Owls!

I have to be honest - I love all of the bits and pieces that go along with craft!
Some of the handiest accessories for crafting are needlebooks and pincushions, and I've seen so many cute tutorials around the internet lately that I thought it would be fun to try some out at the Canberra Brown Owls May meeting.

A quick google will show up loads of tutorials, here are some to start you off:
voodoo pincushion
babyfood jar pincushion
bottle top
strawberry needlebook
kitty needle book

I've also been collecting some of my favourite needle books and pin cushions on pinterest have a little peek if you'd like, and there is always loads of inspiration flickr - try the pincushions, pins and needlebooks group

Of course you're always welcome to bring along anything you'd like to work on - we do love show and tell!

What you need to know....
This month's meet is Saturday 21 May from 2 to 4 pm, at the Downer Community Centre. Bring along a plate to share for afternoon tea, if you would like =)

Please RSVP in the comments to let us know if you're coming along, and please remember to bring along $5 for hall hire

Looking forward to seeing you there!
x Canberra prefects!
