We are a small town on the mighty Mississippi river doing big things to reduce plastic waste in our community. We love to share our knowledge and are happy to show neighboring communities how to make Boomerang bags. We have multiple sewocials set up every month, and have something for everyone. No sewing skill required! We will teach you how to make a bag from A to Z. All sewing events are free and we have multiple outreach and community events planned throughout the year. Everyone is welcome! Take home kits are available if you are unable to make a sewocial.
