Happy Earth Day!

Our gal Michelle came in the other day with a great class idea, that is just perfect to announce on Earth Day. It’s a purse crocheted out of old grocery bags!

The class is a “beginner” level since it requires only minimal crochet skills – single crochet, increase and decrease only. You’ll learn how to cut up plastic grocery bags and connect them together to make “yarn,” as well as how to follow a simple crochet pattern. The class is Sunday, July 20 from 2:30 – 4:30 pm and costs $20. Materials are 30 plastic grocery bags (BYO) and a size N plastic or metal crochet hook (not wood).
