Weaving bags copy

Rainycrest residents Barbara Ballnick, left, Bessie Atatise, Gordiena Drennan, and Lyla Norris spent their Monday afternoon chatting as well as sorting and preparing old plastic bags that will be transformed through crocheting into brand new reusable bags like the ones shown here. Funds raised through the sale of the bags go towards small projects, such as purchasing solar lights for the gardens there, with organizers always looking for more bags and crocheters to help out.
