In January the group will resume meeting monthly each 3rd Tuesday, gathering from 6â€“9 PM, but we will move to the new Kingfield-Lyndale community space at 3537 Nicollet Ave South. The format is causal, 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. 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 our earth. Stay in touch with the group via Facebook atÂ https://www.facebook.com/groups/507876746461602/.
We will be busy sewing reusable shopping bags in the coming months for anyone that needs one, and are happy to support neighbors who need a bag to avoid charges and comply with the new Bring Your Own Bag Ordinance which goes into place on January 1st. This important change in Minneapolis is one small step toward reducing unnecessary plastic consumption in our city. Kingfield Boomerang Bags is excited to keep sewing bags, and also to begin providing education on this ordinance, so that people are prepared for the 5-cent change.
Do you need a reusable shopping bag? Come to an event and we will help you make one!
