Boomerang Bags YYC
Sewcials – Northmount Pleasant
Every 3rd Thursday of the month
Join other volunteers to make re-useable ‘Boomerang Bags’ using recycled materials to replace plastic bags, in a fun, casual environment.
They need helpers to cut out bag patterns, iron the pieces, stamp the pockets, sew the bags, and whatever else needs to be done to make the BBYYC bags look great! BBYYC provides all the supplies (fabric, sewing supplies and machines); however, participants are welcome to bring their own sewing machine, (if it’s easy to transport).
*This is a family friendly event*
More details about Sewcials
Boomerang Bags YYC : a local, grassroots chapter of Boomerang Bags – a global movement aimed at eliminating the use of single-use plastic bags while raising awareness about plastics in our environment.
