The days are still warm, summer lingering longer than it should.  Inside Re:new, though, the products piling up in the bin are decidedly fall and winter, a medley of autumn-hued wools, denim and corduroy.  Once these textiles sat in the back of someone’s closet, long forgotten.   Now the women have created new somethings out of these castoffs...messenger bags and skirts, placemats and table runners.  One woman is knitting fabulously cozy hats (more to come on these in another post), each one colorful and unique, from donated yarns.  As each product is completed and placed into a bin, the smiles abound because something beautiful has been created out of an old-nothing!  At Re:new, we love to re:create!
