Brown Owls Melbourne 3000 CBD - August gathering: Bunting-tastic

Last Melb 3000 gathering I was super delighted to share my happy news of my engagement to be married and even more super delighted to have the good wishes and celebratous goodwill of my lovely Owl-y friends.

It was suggested at that gathering that some owls might like to help me with some of the crafty decorations that will be adorning our backyard homespun wedding in mid October - namely assistance with the crochet bunting!

So this August gathering Bunting-tastic we will be. Super friend Gina and I have started on the triangles - I love them. I have a rough colour scheme of navy, aqua, turquoise, claret, pink, mango, burnt sienna, gold and thereabouts.

The pattern is quite simple (mostly chain, trebles, some htr's) though does require you to know how to do basic crochet, though I'm sure there will be assistance on hand for any beginners that are up for a challenge! 

If you would like to contribute your triangles to the wedding cause then I will supply you with hook and wool. If this is the case please indicate in your RSVP so I know how much 'stuff' to bring along.

If you'd like to make your own bunting then please bring 8 or double ply wool plus a size 5 crochet hook.

I will supply patterns.

Here's the deets:

when:     Tuesday 28th August 2012
at:      6.30 - 9pm
where:      The Parlour, Madame Brussels, level 3, 59-63 Bourke St, Melbourne 3000
bring:      wool - 8 or double ply + crochet hook size 5 (though if you are donating your crochet bunting triangles for the wedding decorations then I will supply you with wool and hook) or BYO project of your choice
cost:      no fee for attendance but you may like to purchase a drink or a delight from the Madame Brussels menu, by way of a thankyou for room usage
RSVP:     in the comments section below please - indicating your name eg. Sue H

Very looking forward to seeing you all next Tuesday.

Thanks for sharing this. This will be a big help to get ideas for a marquee party/events. A marquee really fits in any occasion and theme you want.
