Fabric Bag Sewing Event

November 21, 2019 @ 7:15 pm – 8:45 pm
Dorothy Alling Memorial Library
Melina Petter

Please join us as we gather for our second event in a series to start a community group focused on Sewing Fabric Shopping Bags.

We’ve completed 10 bags so far, and it’s been a blast! We will be sewing fabric shopping bags – in advance of VT’s new law banning single use plastic shopping bags which goes into effect July 2020. You can sew a bag for yourself, for a friend, or for a community member in need of a bag.

We will provide a simple pattern, instruction, tables, cutting boards, an iron, and ironing board.

Please bring your sewing machine, pins, scissors, and some sturdy woven fabric, and sew a bag with us. Acceptable fabrics include left-over yardage or used fabric from draperies etc., no tee-shirts or stretchy fabric please.
We should have extra fabric to share. And we certainly would appreciate any extra fabric you may consider donating!

Don’t have a sewing machine? Not ready to sew? You are welcome to just stop by, to chat, and see what we’re up to, or maybe even give someone a hand with cutting, folding, or ironing.
