- CANCELLED - Recycled Stitches - Wapsi Center
- THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED Come join naturalist Lisa Gerwulf as she shows you how to create a uniquely versatile yarn from recycled plastic bags. “Plarn” (plastic yarn) is not a new fad, but rather a frugal technique reminiscent of the Depression Era. Participants will learn about the plastic industry, plastics waste-to-energy potential, as well as how to create two versions of yarn out of recycled shopping grocery bags. Knitted, crocheted, woven, braided and corded items will also be on display. Those interested need not be fancywork experts to enjoy this program. Each participant needs to bring 5 plastic shopping grocery bags and a pair of sharp scissors. If you have access to a quilting tool called a rotary cutter and mat, consider bringing these. Pre-registration is required, by calling (563) 328-3286 to reserve your spot.
