Calling all Melbourne-ish Brown Owlers - Wool for Women

Hi there

Sue here from Brown Owls Melbourne 3000 CBD branch.

One of our lovely owls, Stacey, is involved with a project that I thought you might be interested in. Stacey will be at the Melb 3000 gathering next Tuesday 29th May (see previous post) for more information or collecting donations. Very look forward to seeing you there.

over to Stacey:

Hello everyone,
As a fellow crafter, attending Brown Owls 3000 from time to time, I wanted to let you all know about a program that Aware (a small Melbourne based not-for-profit that I direct) is running in Cambodia this June - Wool for Women.

Partnering with Dorsu, Wool for Women will provide skills and teacher training to women in Kampot, Cambodia. Aware will complement and add to the amazing work that Dorsu is doing to establish sustainable and creative livelihoods for these women, through crochet and wool crafts, in an area where education and employment opportunities are scarce.

I am hoping to clear out your cupboards for you, by taking any spare wool, crochet hooks, buttons and sewing in needles to Cambodia with me, turning them into something really positive.

I will be attending next Tuesday's brown owls 3000, if you are able to donate anything that would be AMAZING, and i can take it with me from there. I'm happy to chat to you all about it on the night!

Hi there,

I have a bunch of spare supplies at home that I would love to donate. I live in NSW and would be happy to post them to you. When would you need these by?

My email address is anna-marie_jones@hotmail.com.
If you would like these, please email me your postal address and I will send them off to you this week.

Wool for Woman sounds like a great project! Good on ya :)
