Unisex event….
The last one was such a hit so we at it again. Please join Shareca Sheabrown Pitts of Cherokee Street Reach and ReeCee Hartnell for a plarn party on Feb 18, where we will learn how to make plarn; which will be crocheted into mats for the homeless. Both Shea and ReeCee have extensive history with crocheting and teaching this art and will be on hand to instruct new comers with this project. This party with a purpose will help us to help our homeless neighbors to sleep on a dry mat as well as give us all an opportunity to do a little community outreach to help people in need and it’s also a great way to embrace upcycling plastic bags to keep the landfills from growing.

What you need


*We need help
-cutting the plastic bags
-interlocking the bags
-rolling into balls
-help crocheting to mats

It takes around 700 bags to make one mat so we need your plastic bag stashes…..(no Aldi type bags the plastic is hard to work with)
So we need your bag donations

*Rotary cutters, cutting mats and scissors
(Any of them that you have if you have any)

*Large crochet hooks size N or better …Those big blue plastic ones are great also.

Though we love the babies this is a kid free zone…..Because dun dun Deeeee dun THERE WILL BE ALCOHOL ….I mean hey it’s a bar!!!Yippie!!!

SOME Snacks will be provided while they last… you’re welcome to potluck it up….Bring your favorite snack to share. Anyone wanting to contribute to the cause buying supplies or snacks can PayPal

Can’t wait to see you all!!!!!
