Brunswick Brown Owls get all festive on your owls

Oh lookee! 
It's that festive time of year!
Full of cheer and craftiness, and a little silliness!
We'd love you to join us for our annual Brunswick Brown Owl Christmas party at the Victoria Hotel on Victoria St in Brunswick, Melbourne, Vic.

Thank you for all your support this year,
 it's a real treat to be a part of a group 
that meets EVERY FORTNIGHT, rain, hail or shine, with beautiful peeps who genuinely care for each other and have such excellent SKILLZ!

My highlight this year would definitely have been the Craft Cubed Event, the Brunswick Brown Owl Lucky Dip Swap Shop where we raised $73 for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Photos can be found by the talented Sophie Timothy Photography on our Facebook page. 

We'll be starting at 7pm and enjoying the 
delicious goodies from the kitchen.
Will you be joining us?
