Homemakers to Host Workshop on Saturday


The Polk County Extension Homemakers are hosting a workshop to teach others how to make a Microwave Bowl Holder. The event will be held on Saturday, March 25th from 10 a.m. until noon at the Extension Education Center at 211 DeQueen Street in Mena.

“Don’t burn your fingers when you heat your bowl of soup in the microwave,” said event organizers. Fabric and pattern will be provided, however, participants are asked to bring 1/3 of a yard of cotton fabric and cotton flannel, or cotton quilt batting for the inside of the bowl holder. You may also bring sewing supplies such as scissors, rotary cutter and mat, pins, thread, and sewing machines.

The University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture is an equal opportunity/equal access/affirmative action institution. If you require a reasonable accommodation to participate or need materials in another format, please contact the Polk County Extension Office at 479-394-6018. Dial 711 for Arkansas Relay.
