Join our Sunday sustainable sewing session this Plastic Free July and get yourself equipped with your own handmade reusables, learn some new skills, & have a fun creative time!
We will be making a snackage package in this session and is a great opportunity to learn stop starts, pivots, corners, and top stitching. Don’t worry ~ it’s totally Beginner friendly! And fun for any advanced sewist too. This is a handy dandy Zero Waste cutlery kit to keep in your work drawer, glove box or handbag for instant picnic without the waste!
The rest of the day the sewing room will be open for anyone to drop to make their own cloth reusable grocery bags or bulk bin bags, so you’re welcome to stay on and sew more if you wish
