Hey city folks! Are you looking for a relaxing down-state get away? Learn to weave with Jennie Hawkey! Her studio is just a few hours south of Chicago in picturesque Chillicothe, IL. She’s got a weekend workshop coming up that is perfect for SORR’ers:
It’s In the Bag
March 23-24, 2013
Weave bags that you can use for all of your shopping. Gather up all of your plastic shopping bags and make reusable shopping bags from them. These bags are attractive and durable and you will be doing something for the environment by recycling the plastic that you have!
Jennie Hawkey (a.k.a. “Mom” to SORR Organizer Katie Hawkey Swindler) is one of the founding members of Swap-O-Rama-Rama Chicago and still supports the event generously each year. You may even see her helping to run the Feb. event!
