Hi anyone who finds this in the blogosphere
We haven’t used this page in quite a while, but we are still going strong, and are changing venue!
We are now meeting from 6pm Tuesdays at the Fox Hotel, 71-73 Melbourne St, South Brisbane QLD
It’s just up the road from the 3 Monkeys, but has better lighting, food and beverage options, comfy booths and is right next to the trains and buses. See you there!!
If you’d like to keep up with us in online we are still active on facebook https://www.facebook.com/brisbanesnb and twitter @brisbanesnb

Well, proceedings kick off today starting with the craft fair at King George Square. It is not as colourful and awesome this year on account of us not making them a garden this time and the square has not been yarn bombed either. I know, a slight bummer we will need to remedy next winter, but still the fair is worth checking out if you can get down there today. Our good friends from Biggan Designs, QSWFA and Voodo Rabbit fabrics are down there with stalls, along with our own Catamation, of course. Other stalls of interest were embroidery, tatting, bark pictures, basketry and there is felt and sewn stuff too. On display there is an origami city hall made from old cheques (from the 40’s, I think) and there is a live bit of ice sculpture too. Now that is a good way to mark the beginning of winter! The market goes until 4pm and there are lounges set up from anyone to sit and knit or craft on Adelaide Street, in the middle of King George Square and also at The Bleeding Heart Cafe on Ann Street (in the old school of arts building opposite the council building). See you there? There are demos on through the day, the ice carving as I mentioned has already begun. Hmmm it is prolly done by now, I must go back to the square to sneak a peek. Sarting about now is a soap making demo and at noon there is a glass bead making one I can’t wait to see. At 1pm is eco aware clothing and at 2 is one on spinning wheels. Which reminds me that I must resist the Kromski spindle I saw down there at The Mountain Spinnery Stall, but it is hard.

Because tomorrow is another public holiday and the 3 monkeys are shut we have reserved a table at the Pancake Manor, Elizabeth St in the city from 7. We will be back in our regular spot next week

After roaming in the cafe wastelands of Brisbane for 40 days, we have ended the journey back where we started
The 3 monkeys has re-opened, and we are BACK!!
A good deal of West End around Boundary Rd was still shut last week, and I can’t wait to see the place back to its old pumping self.
But in the mean time you will find us every Tuesday from 7 pm up the back stitching and nattering like happy nannas with cake

It is with a very heavy heart that I report that the awesome 3 monkeys cafe in West End, our home for nearly 6 (SIX!) years was inundated during the Brisbane Floods and is closed until further notice.
Until they are back serving their dairy laced goodies we are trying to find a temporary location.
Required: a centrally located cafe that possesses the following attributes
- easy access by train and bus
- extended opening hours (9pm or later) on weeknights
- a laid back attitude to a group of 7+ knitters converging for stitching and bitching for several hours every Tuesday night
- an affordable menu with meals and snacks
If you think you know a cafe that fits the bill please let us know!
Help us interwebs community, you’re our only hope!
