Sandy Subert first became inspired to help the homeless in her community after watching a video on Facebook. The video, produced by David Wolfe, shows several grandmothers refashioning plastic grocery sacks into sleeping mats for the homeless.
Subert couldn’t find a group in the area doing it, so she decided to start her own. “I watched the video and it’s really easy to do,” she said. “I started experimenting with it.”
Subert’s group, dubbed the Duvall Bag Ladies, meets every Tuesday at Quintessential Knits. The Duvall shop is owned by Judy Quinton. “She is very, very much supporting of us,” Subert said of Quinton. “She’s the best.”
