Fri., April 3, noon

on Zoom


We miss seeing you at our community events!
So at times like this, we learn to supplement
These long days at home,
Some with family, some alone,
Some with dogs, some with mice,
Some with children, not so nice 😄

So here’s our plan to beat the glum,
Don’t fix your hair, just relax and come!
At lunch, it’s time to take a break,
Bring soup or salad or chocolate cake!
Then dial-up on Zoom to take your seat
And join our conversation to see who you’ll meet!


No RSVP needed! To join us on Zoom for Lunch Lounge:

1) Before the Zoom video call: Download the Zoom app on your computer/phone/tablet

Make Protective Masks for Portland Medical Needs

Positive Charge! PDX

has had such a great group of sewers show up to make lap pads and neck wraps for victims of sex trafficking, and then to make joey bags for furry victims of the Australian bushfires, and then to sew catnip toys and dog beds for area animal organizations. Now we need to step up and 

MAKE FACE MASKS AT HOME

for our sick family members, friends, and neighbors as well as our overwhelmed and underprotected medical community!

Because there's already a great group in Portland managing the information (that changes daily) about the specific local needs for this cause, we're not going to recreate the wheel. Instead, we direct you to the

Facebook page for

Crafters Against Covid-19 PDX

where you'll find a great overview video, a mask pattern, an FAQ sheet, and drop-off locations. We're not including details here, because the info changes quickly. Stay informed through the above FB page!

Got some time? Lend a helping hand!

Portland has a Pot Shortage!
