Launceston Brown Owls - Quilt for Kiva

Hi to all Launceston Crafters!
It's July Meeting Time.

When: Tuesday 12 July, 7-9pm
Where: Nanna's Cafe, 7 Coulter Court, Launceston (Park outside by driving down driveway next to Toyworld off York Street, OR Park in Brisbane Street and walk through arcade)
Refreshments available for purchase.
What: We are still working on our quilt for Kiva (http://www.kiva.org/). We are going to raffle the quilt in November -December to raise money for this amazing organisation. For the quilt each Owl is asked to complete 1 x 4 inch square and 1 x 8 inch square. The squares should be in black and white with one other colour of your choice. As for each square ... You can embroider it, piece it, applique it, embellish it ... do what ever you like to it .... and then they will all be quilted together and the completed masterpiece sold, with proceeds going to a charity of our choice (TBA). Never fear if you are not a quilter and it remains as a dark art to you ... there are plenty of quilters in our group who are willing and able to lend a hand! If you would like to start on your squares ... bring them along.

Or else bring your handheld project. There are still plenty of Granny Squares going ... so if you are at a crafting loose end there are a whole army of crocheters ready to lend a hand if you want to have a whirl. All newcomers more than welcome! We are a friendly bunch! Haven't been for a while? We would love to see you.
Please RSVP in the comment section here or over at our facebook page is here

ALL welcome!

Yours in craft
Gemma and Georgia x
