After reading about the Brown Owls at Meet Me at Mikes, my friend Carrie and I decided to organise our own chapter at the Nords Wharf Hall.
It's a not-for-profit group for adults who want to learn new skills, show their talents, meet new people, finish a 'ufo' (unfinished object) or just get away from the kids for a couple of hours!
The Shelbyville Brown Owls described it as "essentially it's a "craft + chat club" where girls regularly meet up and bring along their crafty projects to work on while they chatter. How lovely does that sound? Originally started in Melbourne, the concept has caught on, and now interstate (and maybe even international) chapters are popping up so that crafting girls everywhere can soon join in the fun."
I'm hoping to get a variety of talents and skills - and personalities too.
So if you're a local, it's on at the Nords Wharf Hall, Marine Parade Nords Wharf, our first meeting is Tuesday the 28th September, 7-9pm and we hope to have fortnightly meetings.
So why not come along, have a cuppa, and realise your crafty potential!
See you there.
