Boomerang Bag-Making Day

In July, we joined the Southern Highlands chapter of “Boomerang Bags Australia” in learning how to make shopping bags out of discarded fabric that was otherwise going to end up in landfill along with all of the plastic shopping bags we are hoping they will replace.

We plan to make enough to have at our local plastic bag -free farmers’ market (Railway Street Fresh Food and Produce Market) in Moss Vale. They are designed to be available in case a customer forgets to bring their usual non-plastic shopping baskets/bags and can “borrow & bring back” one of our cloth alternatives.

It was a fun day sitting around sewing machines chatting, laughing and creating.  We hope to do it again soon……..
