Calling all crafters - come make fiber welcome mats for refugee families

Wednesday, February 27, 2019

Calling all crafters, fiber artists, and people with big hearts. 

We invite you to come to Third Place Commons in Lake Forest Park this Saturday, March 2, from 10am to 1pm to help make welcome mats which will be donated to the International Rescue Committee to be distributed to new refugee families in the Greater Seattle area. 

We take gently used fabric, usually unused yardage, or top sheets, duvet covers, or tablecloths, and create 'yarn' by cutting it into strips (we'll show you how).

Then crochet or knit it into a 'rag rug' (we have patterns or can demonstrate) which gets tagged with a title and the first name of the maker and delivered to the IRC. 

We have supplies, including fabric, yarn, and crochet hooks. Weavers and latch-hook rug makers are invited to participate as well.

For more information, check out our website or contact Luanne Brown
