What you'll do

We will learn to cut used plastic bags that would otherwise be discarded into yarn, roll it into balls and crochet a simple stitch into a simple pattern of a shopping bag. These bags are very unique, strong and durable.

Janice

I care for the environment and up cycling is my hobby, I use discarded plastic grocery bags to make yarn that is crocheted into very strong and durable shopping bags. While this is very time consuming, all supplies are free! Everyone loves my bags and they make wonderful gifts. I’ve been making these bags for over 10 years, I have been asked to teach classes at the library ( in a nearby town) and a church asked if I would teach girls in Africa for a fair trade store. I had to decline both due to my full time work, but now that I am retired and have my own Airbnb business, I would like to host workshops where everyone can learn to make the yarn, and crochet the bag. I was thinking of doing. 2 hr workshop, and if they need more, they could return with another class. A bag takes about 10 hours, five to make the yarn and five to crochet.

Where you'll be

A beautiful updated storefront in a 200 year old building on Main Street. The Allen family lived in this four plex in the 1800s for four generations when it was a mansion. We have been refinishing the wood floors and painting the walls, we have further to go, but we’ve come a long way on this project.
