Mat Makers

Mat makers met last Saturday. We have met monthly for the past two years and have so much fun getting together. Covid slowed us meeting in person or a while, but the cutting and crocheting continued at home! We’ve sent 103 mats to homeless shelters and have 7 more ready to deliver!! We will meet again March 27, at St John Lutheran Church, from 9-noon. Join us if you can!

Linda Rahjes working with a smile!
