Brisbane Owls RSVP for Ningyogami!

Brisbane Owls: It's time to RSVP for Ningyogami - you don't want to miss this one!

Date: Sunday 18 October

Time: 10:30am - 12:30pm

Venue: Same as usual. Recreation Room in Building 7 of Roma Street Parklands Apartments, Parkland Blvd, Brisbane. The Rec Room is on the ground floor of building 7. Building 7 is the end apartment block furthest away from the City.

Note on parking: The Multicultural Festival is on Sunday in the Parklands so parking will be difficult. You may be able to find a park nearby in Spring Hill but it's probably best to get dropped off or get a bus or train to Roma Street (take the Parklands exit at the station). The Festival is loads of fun so if you would like to go after Brown Owls we can lock your crafting stuff in the Rec Room and you can pick it up later in the day.

Craft-along Project: Ningyogami
Melanie has kindly offered to teach us how to make ningyogami (cute little Japanese paper dolls).
What to bring: A pair of scissors and $5 for instructions and a little kit of paper.
If you would like to make your ningyogami into cards, bring your own card stock or Melanie will have some available on the day for purchase at wholesale price. You might also like to bring a cutting knife and glue to make your card.

Or BYO craft. If you need to use a sewing machine let us know in the comments section so we can have one set up ready to go (you'll need to bring your own thread and bobbin).

Tea and coffee provided. Feel free to show off your baking skills by bringing a plate for morning tea :)

The weather is heating up so if you'd like a dip in the pool bring swimming gear, towel and sunscreen.

Please RSVP by leaving a comment on this post by Thursday 15 October.

See you then!

I can't make it this time :( ...having a garage sale to release some fabric, patterns, crafty stuff and household goodies back out into the big beyond.

I won't be back in Brisbane till Tuesday so can't make it. This is one I'm really sorry to miss. Would love to learn to make those cute little dolls.
