AE Capital City Weekly Have you heard? We're in a recession. Yes, crafters worldwide are buckling down and cinching it in. Every day, scarves are getting shorter, quilts are becoming thinner, and a little less glitter graces the pages of scrapbooked memories. What is a crafter to do in tight times like these? Easy: make do as makers do. In true crafty style, creatives everywhere are turning discards into art. And the favorite these days takes plastic grocery sacks and whips it into yarn, fittingly named PLARN!

Save some dough during tough times: plarn it!
