Life is full of opportunities to be flexible, isn’t it?
Our next Hand Crafting day will be MAY 21.
This is NOT the second weekend. So mark your calendars and join us for a fun time!
We meet from 9:30 to 2 or until you need to leave. Bring your lunch if you want to stay and eat.
We have tasks for “NON- CRAFTERS”. In addition to our handwork people, we welcome everyone who does NOT sew, knit or crochet. You can help with the fleece or the plastic mats.
We have a ton of fleece to make into blankets (no sewing required!)
Secondly, we are hoping to start making plastic mats for the homeless. They are made out of PLARN which is a cute name for ‘yarn’ made from plastic shopping bags. Each mat takes 700 bags, SO, we could use your bags AND your help.
1. We need people to fold and flatten the bags
2. ‘Snippers’ for cutting strips — make 4 cuts to each bag to get strips
3. ‘Loopers’ —- looping the strips together to get ready for crocheting
4. Crocheters with an N or P hook – to crochet the mats
See, we really do need EVERYONE’S help!
Hope to see you on the 21st!
