Description

Boomerang Bags, boldly working to stop plastic bag use, one shopper at a time!

Boomerang Bags is an international, volunteer-fueled project focused on making and distributing reusable shopping bags. Volunteers meet monthly to cut, sew, iron, and silkscreen beautiful bags from upcycled fabrics. The bags are given away free at select stores for people to reuse over and over, or to borrow and return if they forget their own reusable bags.

This fall a Kingfield chapter of Boomerang Bags is taking root, to be nurtured along by the Linden Hills group, and hosted by Butter Bakery Café. You are welcome to attend any or all of three fall sessions, which will meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 6 to 9 PM at Butter Bakery Café, 3700 Nicollet: September 17th, October 15th, and November 19th. SEWING BEES are FREE--but you can always make a donation as you RSVP to support the project with thread, logo-pockets, sewing supplies, and snacks.

The format for the Kingfield sessions will be casual, so drop in for as much time as you have free. Bring your own machine if you are a sewer, or just show up and help iron, cut, and pin. There will be host each month to help you start the bag-making process and get oriented to a task. All levels of participation are welcomed, and we look forward to connecting with each other and sharing conversations about how we can all leave a lighter footprint on this beautiful earth!
