Volunteers get together to make re-useable ‘Boomerang Bags’ using recycled materials to replace plastic bags, in a fun, casual environment.
Through Boomerang Bags we start conversations, make friends, up-cycle materials and work towards shifting society’s throw away mentality to a more sustainable revolution of re-use ― one community, needle and thread at a time!
You don't have to sew to join:
- we need members 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)..
Donations gladly accepted:
- fabric offcuts, sheets, pillowcases, curtains
- misc sewing supplies
- irons/sewing machines
- snack to share
*This is a family friendly event*
