Pretty Pin-Cushions for Pretty Sweet Peeps!

Brunswick Brown Owls make

Pretty Pin-Cushions with CASEY

The delightful CASEY, a Brunswick Brown Owl who is a master quilt maker (hand sewn, oh my goodness) and collector of gorgeous fabrics (and also works in the head office of an extremely large fabric and haberdashery and homewares franchise in Australia!) will be taking us through a workshop this Wednesday 29th February at 7pm at the Sporting Club, Weston St., Brunswick, Victoria.

You will need:

1. Scraps of fabric in about 7 different designs

2. Template plastic

3. Sharp scissors

4. Needle

5. Thread

6. Embroidery thread to contrast with fabric

7. Hobby fill

8. Self cover button, approx. 2.5cm diameter

Welcome if you haven’t made it to the Brunswick Brown Owls for 2012! If you can’t make it, we’ll pop up photos (just like that of Casey's quilt below) of the evening on our Brunswick Brown Owls facebook page so you can watch the fun too. We have almost 100 members, and you can be a part of our crafty community too! Come along with some friends and learn some new skills with us!

The Sporting Club still has delicious tapas (4 for the price of 3, bargain!) and they even have discount price cocktails! Bonza! What a night!
