Brown Owls Launceston - Blanket Squares for the Tassie Fires

Happy New Year Launceston Owls!

As we are all aware, there have been some devastating fires around our beautiful state this year. If you are free on Saturday the 9th February, come and get your yarn on to make some crochet or knitted squares. All squares will be donated to those that have been affected by the fires and made into blankets by members of The Craft Hive (Hobart).  It would be lovely if you could donate the yarn you will be using.

This will be an ace chance to catch up after a very long hiatus, owls - old and new. For those of you that want to get started before the catch up, The Craft Hive is seeking squares that are 8 inches in size and can be made from acrylic, wool or blends. Any colour of course. For more information about 'Woolies for Tassie' check out The Craft Hive Facebook page.

Please RSVP here in the comments section or on the Brown Owls Launceston Facebook page  so that we have an idea of numbers.

We will be meeting from 10.30am at The Tea Room café at the QVMAG Art Gallery.

When: Saturday 9th February 2013
Where: The Tea Room
Address: QVMAG Art Gallery, 2 Wellington Street, Launceston
Time: 10:30am to 12:30pm

Looking forward to seeing you there!
