Crochet Class 501(c)(3) is an ethical teaching organization that uses crocheting, as an art-based approach, to enhance learning, and reduce stress while strengthening and engaging our community.
In 2023, we've added The Mats Project as one of our Volunteer Programs. We upcycle unused plastic bags into eco-friendly sustainable bed mats for the homeless on the street. We've streamlined our production process by having volunteers that cut the bags into strips, then loop the strips into a long strand and crochet the strands into the mats that measure 30" wide and 72" long. Come make a mat and make a difference! Besides making mats we've volunteered at LV Rescue Mission and Walk For Freedom. Go to The Mats Project Page for more information.
We've been impacting our local community since 2016 through The Art Of Crochet Project classes. The Art Of Crochet Project is made possible by Crochet Class 501(c)(3). We've hosted classes and events at various venues, including several senior facilities, and a neurological facility, as well as, for groups and individuals. Besides teaching crochet we've donated yarn, hooks, patterns, hats, blankets, and meals to the Ronald McDonald House, Clark County School District and ASPCA.

Thanks to our partners, sponsors, and collaborators for making this possible!
