Today we had a special guest here to teach us how to weave milk bag mats.
Milk bag mats go to countries like Malawi and Haiti for people to sleep on. By our standards this would not be appealing, but many people sleep on dirt floors in Malawi and Haiti. The good things about these milk bag mats are that the bugs don’t like them (so people don’t sleep with bugs), they wash easily and dry quickly and they last a long time.
Thanks, Henk, for helping us out today!
If you are interested, please stop by Tuesday (tomorrow) about 10:30 am as we will be finishing up our 2nd mat.
