100 turned up for the meet and greet at Dantes this week - a wonderful response. It was mostly a gals only gig ....(Pip's partner Cam and her two gorgeous boys were the only lads in the room!)
No craft at this meeting ... but some dinner, drinks and lots of chatting to folk, who like me, read about Brown Owls online and thought it wouldn't hurt to hang out with crafty types. Hi to Nicole, Nycole, Imogen and Sophie who I chatted to for a while.
Lots of us brought craft items - wool, needles, pins, scissors, fabric, knitting needles etc - and piled them on the donation tables. We helped make up packs that will be sent to neighbourhood houses in the fire affected areas so families who have lot everything can get a little comfort from some crafty loveliness.
