Perth 2012

I thought it was about time we posted a Bayswater (Perth) update for 2012. 

Our group continues to grow but we still welcome new faces so if you have been thinking of coming, please do!

Our January meeting is happening on the 21st. We are heading to Knit the Beach as part of the Summerset Festival. This workshop will be held by the City of Stirling in order to produce crocheted and knitted items to cover parts of Scarborough Beach (aka yarn bomb the beach!). Knitting and crochet skills are not needed- there will be teachers. All you need to bring is a hook or needles. If you have any spare yarn laying around- bring that too!

If you are in Perth and cannot attend, you can still contribute by donating any spare yarn to any City of Stirling Library.
More info on this event can be found here.

Remainder of 2012
The remainder of our meetings will be held on the 3rd Sunday of the month.
February 19
March 18
April 15
May 20
June 17
July 15
August 19
September 16
October 21
November 18
December 16

Meetings start at 2pm. You can hang around for as long or as short (?) as you wish. 

Usually meetings are BYO but we will always notify you if a meeting will have a certain theme. We also ask for a gold coin donation to contribute to the hire of the meeting room.

We will update here again leading up to Feb, but at the moment, it looks like we will have Carolyn (our resident experienced dressmaker) showing us how to re-create an old favourite item of clothing by creating a pattern.

Please contact either Sarah or Megan if you are thinking of joining. We welcome all types of crafting experience (from zero to pro).

Our Facebook group is also a great way of receiving updates (and checkout what everyone is making). If you are not a bloggy person, but are on FB. Join the group!

Hi There,
i'm cleaning out my craft room and i have a box full of yarn that i would like to donate to a place that will use it for charity. Does your group do that sort of thing?

Kind regards, Kate.

It is nice to know that there is an event we can go to where the people there share the same interests as us. It would definitely be easier to mingle and socialize with the event’s participants as everyone is like-minded there. After having travelled for quite a while now, we have finally decided that Perth will be our home. We enjoy the outdoors very much but I think my wife would be delighted if she could have sometime alone doing something relaxing and fruitful like knitting. She would be very pleased to know there is always the Brown Owls to turn to.
