Join our Social Boomerang Bag Group! You will learn how to make a bag with the request that the bag remains with The Nest Community to help with fundraising. In return you can take home a kit to make your own bag after your first visit.
The Nest Community Inc are establishing our own social Sunday group who love to sew bags and chat. We encourage members of the community from all ages to attend. It allows a wonderful opportunity to feel connected to the community, learn and develop new skills, all whilst being sustainable.
The Nest Community Boomerang Bag group is looking for new volunteers to assist with this project. We have secured a regular order from a local business and would gratefully appreciate volunteers to attend our workshops to assist with the regular production of Boomerang Bags. The proceeds from the sale of these bags contribute towards supporting The Nest Community Inc.
We have kits available to distribute to those who may wish to sew at home rather than at the sewing bee events. If volunteers were able to sew three bags per month this would go a long way towards meeting out order quota. We understand not everyone is able to commit to this and we are grateful for any help you are willing to provide.
We welcome any sewers who are interested in becoming part of this exciting movement and helping rid the world of single use plastic bags. The group is very friendly and happy to provide guidance and help for those newish to sewing.
