Rosemount United Methodist Church applied for and received a grant on how to be more "green". So they contacted The Textile Center to learn some recycled textile projects.
Yesterday I taught how to fuse plastic bags together and make your own lunch bag. Today I taught how to make a water bottle holder out of an old wool sweater and then we needle felted on designs with wool roving. Both classes were filled with crafty and quilty ladies and and a very enthusiastic young man who sewed with a machine for the first time. He was a natural.
They enjoyed it so much they are going to make a bunch for their Holiday Bazaar in November!
They are going to have me back in the spring to do some more. Can't wait - what a great bunch!
