Southside Owls ~ Thursday 9th August ~ Miss Jackson

Hello ladies!!

Come along a join us for our last bit of winter craft action this year (bring on spring!) at Miss Jackson.

To appropriately herald out winter, we are going to have cheese, gluhwein and a roaring fire to keep us fuelled for our craft endeavours!

And this month's craftarama is macramé friendship bracelets!! Yay! I got a bit obsessed with making these last summer, they are super easy and quick to do and great for little gifts, for friends of course!

Date: Thursday 9th August

Time: 7:30pm onwards

Venue: Miss Jackson2/19 Grey Street St. Kilda (through the big rusty gate)

Close to the #16, #96 and #112 trams, and nearby parking below


There is of course heaps of inspiration on the interwebs and loads of tutorials, here are a few good ones:

I'll bring along some printed instructions, a fantastic old 80s book I have on friendship bracelets, and I've got the latest Mollie Makes which has a few different tutorials in it.

If you'd like to join in it's a short and simple list of supplies/equipment to bring along:

~ thread in approx 2m lengths
embroidery floss is good, or any cotton yarn, really you could use whatver you like, my personal fav is DMC soft cotton from Morris and Sons

- a safety pin or clipboard can be handy for securing the top while you knot away

Goodies: We will provide the gluhwein, please feel free to bring along some cheese and crackers to go with!

RSVP: Add a comment to let us know you are coming along!

Feel free to email me or tweet me with any questions.

Looking forward to seeing you all! Yay for gluhwein, cheese, chatting and craft!!
