Press release submitted by The Wapsi River Environmental Education Center

On Saturday, October 20, from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. the Wapsi River Environmental Education Center will be hosting a Toasty Toes Workshop. Converting a pile of outgrown or underutilized t-shirts into colorful, cozy rugs has never been easier; especially with the help of a most unique loom – a hula hoop! Each participant needs to bring about a dozen T-shirts (boy's size L or equivalent (men's/women's size S or girl's size L/XL) work well, but other sizes can be adapted) and a pair of sharp, fabric scissors. If you have access to a quilting tool called a rotary cutter, consider bringing it with the mat and ruler. Looms will be provided. This program is ideal for beginning weavers, and would appeal to families, scout groups as well as individuals. Walk-ins are welcome, but pre-registration is appreciated by calling (563) 328-3286.

The Wapsi River Environmental Education Center can be found 6 miles south of Wheatland or 1 mile northwest of Dixon, Iowa by taking County Road Y4E. Then turn north at 52nd Avenue and follow the signs for about 1 mile.
