HONESDALE — On Thursday, March 31, Annie Caden will be teaching the DIY: Upcycled Yarn class at The Cooperage on 1030 Main Street, Honesdale, PA. The class will begin at 7:00pm with a suggested donation of $15.

Upcycling is a common theme of DIY workshops at The Cooperage. Upcycling saves money, saves energy and keeps useful “stuff” out of landfills. It’s not hard to argue the benefits of this increasingly popular movement.

The focus of the March DIY class is on creating upcycled yarn from old fabrics and household items.

Learn how to turn old tee-shirts and plastic bags into yarn that can be used to knit, crochet or weave.

The class will be led by fiber artist Annie Caden of Fisher Cat Fiber Company.

Anne’s mission at Fisher Cat Fiber Co is to be resourceful and creative at the same time.

She takes materials that would otherwise be tossed into the trash and creates something new and beautiful with them.

She famous for her plastic bag rugs, which she sells online in the Uniteds States, the United Kingdom and Australia.

In April 2015, Anne was featured on Earth911.com, a national blog devoted to helping businesses and consumers reduce their waste.

“It was a true honor!” said Annie during an interview with ScrantonMade.

Don’t miss this chance to drop by The Cooperage from 7:00 to 9:00pm, Thursday, March 31, for this hands-on workshop led by Annie Caden.

Space is limited for this interactive workshop.

Please reserve your spot today by calling 570.253.2020. Participants are asked to bring three to four old tee-shirts (preferably without a side-seam).
