Helga’s story: Sleeping mats from milk bags for disaster stricken countries.

“I started crocheting mats at home in January 2012 and it took me 2-3 months to finish one mat. In 2014 I heard that you could weave the mats on wooden frames which was much much faster. In May 2014 a retired carpenter friend offered to make a frame for us, and we set it up at our Village Mosaic Senior Centre where others could help cutting up the milk bags and also help with the weaving… and the rest is history…we’re working on our 23rd mat right now…” 

Weavers are desperately needed, we are bursting at the seams with bags!!!!!
