Our group came about after an afternoon tea with a friend. She had seen an article on boomerang bags, loved them and thought it would be a great project for our small sewing group. From there the group was formed. We enjoy spending time with a good group of people, creating bags that we can be proud of, talking about all things waste and plastic free. We find our influence slowly spreading to our friends and family and from there onto their friends. We slowly make changes at home and ask for more changes from our shop keepers, businesses, council, government and each other.
Where should people donate materials?:
We have more than enough regular materials and sewing machines at the moment although an overlocker or two would be very welcome. We also never seem to have enough net curtains to make produce bags from. If you have something you would like to donate please call or message me prior. Thank you.
