Canberra :: April brooches wrap-up

logo by Mikaela @ Danvers Creative
Helloooo owls!
We had a wonderful time at our April meeting, with one of our local owls Angie giving a workshop on how to make these gorgeous wood and fabric brooches. As well as being an all round crafty and amazing lady, Angie has recently taken on a position as shop girl with local business Canberra Creatives and all our supplies came from the online shop (I hope you don't mind the plug, but we did get loads of questions about where people could get their hands on them when we posted some pics on Instagram =))

They all turned out so beautifully - I had loads of comments on mine when I wore it to work on Monday =)

If you missed out and would like to make your own brooch, Angie has also blogged the tutorial over at her gorgeous blog GnomeAngel

Thanks so much to Angie, and to everyone who was able to make it!
Don't forget our next meeting will be on Saturday 25th May.

We will also be at the Mega Craft Day being held this Saturday (see below)!
It is going to a be a super fun day with free craft demos, shopping (yay!), even some activities for the kids.
Bron from Canberra Brown Owls will be there demonstrating the art of english paper piecing, and if you're lucky there might be some space left in Angie's brooch workshop =)
Pop over here for more info and to book workshops
Hope to see you there!!
