Heyyyyy Heyyyyy Heyyyyy everyone!!!!! Yes we're at it again...Yippppie!!!!!Please join Shareca Sheabrown Pitts of Cherokee Street Reach and ReeCee Hartnell for another fabulous plarn party on Saturday April 29, 2017 from 2pm to 5pm.

It's here in this wonderful space that you will learn to all the necessary steps to turn non recyclable plastic bags into plastic yarn (plarn), which will be turned into sleeping mats for homeless veterans.

Both Shea and ReeCee have extensive history with both crocheting and teaching this art and both will be on hand to help guide you through and also instruct new comers.

This party with a purpose will help us help our homeless neighbors by providing them with a little portable comfort as well as give us all an opportunity to do some real meaningful community service, helping people in need and keeping some of those pesky bags out of the landfills.

What you need:
The most important piece to this project

****Plastic bags****
It takes about 700 bags to make one mat, so your stash is definitely welcome here.( Please remember we can't use the heavy bags like Aldi bags they are difficult to work with)

**We need help-------
- sorting the bags by color
-cutting the bags into strips
-interlocking the strips and
rolling into plarn balls
-crocheting the plarn

***Large crochet hooks size N or better no bigger than S****

There will be give-a-ways and Prospect will be holding us down musically (if you were at the last one you know it's just hype)

This is a Potluck event so please bring your favorite snack to share!!

Anyone wanting to contribute to the cause can PayPal

We look forward to seeing each and every one of your smiling faces and sharing our positive energy with you.
