Sydney Brown Owls are the Grooviest Craft Gals in Town, who love all crafts and believe in sharing the crafty love. If you have been looking for a bunch of gals to craft with, a bunch of gals who know there is no such thing as too much yarn/fabric/paper, then my friend, you may have just stumbled on Nirvana!

Sydney Brown Owls

Dear Brown Owls

It’s with a great deal of regret that we post this post.

Brown Owls has been in decline over the last year, and despite our relaunch at the beginning of the year, we don’t seem to have captured your hearts and minds in the way we would have liked.

Organising for Owls is time consuming, so after a great deal of talk amongst ourselves, we’ve decided it’s time to focus our energy elsewhere.

We’ve all loved being part of Brown Owls, and thank each and every one of you for coming along to the events we’ve organised.

Some of us Craft Addicts will still be meeting – if anyone is keen to join us, please drop me a line at

Hopefully we will see some of you around the traps.
Fran, Manu, Kamilla & Kareena

Alannah Hill Tonight

Hi Everyone

I'm terribly sorry to do this at such short notice, but we've had a personal emergency so will not be hosting the workshop preview at The Evening Star tonight. Yarn in the Pub will not be going ahead either.

The workshop will be held but not in March I'm afraid. When we have more definite details, we'll let you know.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Fran, Manu and Kamilla
