Footscray Brown Owls June Meeting




Well it was just the two of us but we still had a most enjoyable time chatting, sipping, crotcheting perusing patterns and planning............

Born to Knit is a campaign being run by save the children fund. It intends to donate 15,000 knitted blankets for disadvantaged children overseas who need blankets for warmth. Footscray Brown Owls have decided to join forces to knit squares for a blanket.

If your Brown Owl group is interested in joining the campaign you can check it out how here.
So come on all you brown owls lets see how many blankets we can contribute to the campaign. Theres something nice about the thought that something woolly created here in Australia will keep a child in need warm and comforted. :)

Hi Aimee you were sorely missed :)

Janet and I didnt set the July date as she is booking tickets for a visit to QLD so thought we would wait to see what dates she ended up with first and what dates you were available.

Hi Pippa
We would love you to come along sometime. A crotcheter is very handy and most welcome :)
The July date is not set yet so if you have any preference please put forward.

Let me know available dates soon!
