Helpers needed to crochet for the homeless
December 14, 2011 · Updated 5:05 PM
A group of local crocheters are turning plastic grocery bags into warmer nights for the homeless. Several crocheters affiliated with Calvary Chapel in North Bend are making sleeping bag mats for homeless people, using plastic bags, a number-N hook and a simple stitch.
The mats act as a cold and moisture barrier for those on the street. More crocheters are needed to help boost the effort, and are asked to contact Jane Rosenkranz at (425) 888-0385 to learn how to help.
