Mat Makers Meet

We have so many bags that need to be made into sleeping mats, please consider coming to help in this project. All you need is the ability to flatten bags, cut them, tie a knot, or crochet! Simple, right? It is just that simple! We decided to meet more often in the summer to make a larger impact on getting mats  made and delivered to those who need it. We will meet at St. John Lutheran Church on Thursday, June 27, from 2-5pm and also that Saturday, June 29, from 9am to noon! We are trying to meet different times to help accommodate everyone's schedules. We met earlier in the month and had about 10 people. We also had 3 more mats brought finished and ready to go to the homeless.  We certainly hope you feel inspired to come to any of our get together we have! We have fun visiting while we work....there's always snacks too! All ages welcome! Contact Robin Billings if you have any questions.
