Southside Brown Owls ~ Thu 16th June ~ Embroidery!


We are going to give embroidery a try next week and would love you to join us!

Date: Thu 16th June
Time: 7:30pm - 9:30pm(ish)
Venue: Miss Jackson 2/19 Grey Street, St. Kilda (just look for the big rusty gate)

But of course, BYO projects are always welcome, please do come along even if embroidery is not your cup of tea
Here is a list of the stuff you need for stitching:
~ Embroidery hoop
~ Embroidery floss
~ Embroidery needles
~ Material
~ Air or water fading tracing pen
~ Scissors
We are aiming to provide enough stuff for everyone that wants to stitch along, but please feel free to bring you own stuff along if you have it already or buy some if you would like. Most of the items are pretty cheap, and Spotlight in South Melbourne has a great range of embroidery floss.
We will have everything listed above, plus plenty of pictures you can trace and different stitch instructions aswell.

Here is a fantastic tutorial from Pip on the basics of embroidery!
And there is endless inspiration to be found on the interwebs. The best thing about embroidery is you can embroider pretty much anything!

We will have tea, wine and some delicious baked goodies
And everyone is more than welcome to show off their baking skills and bring something along ;)

Please RSVP in the comments section below if you would like to come along
Let us know if you would like to do embroidery so we can make sure we have enough supplies for everyone
We can accommodate the first 25 people to comment below

We are super looking forward to it and hope to see you there! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. And...we will have the open fire roaring so we will be toasty crafters!!
