Let’s make Eastbourne plastic-bag free!
Update for February 2018
We’re aiming for a launch sometime late February / early March – when we’ve hit 500 bags.
Once out there, bag numbers will have to be maintained, repairs made etc, so our Wednesday-night sessions will be ongoing for the foreseeable future.
Wanted: Fabric and thread donations. Please drop these off at the library or at St Ronan’s (box in the hall).
Working bees at St Ronan’s:
Come along and meet your community, have a laugh and contribute to an awesome cause. We hope you enjoy seeing your fabric turned into bags - there are some beauties! Come with a sewing machine if you can. There are also plenty of non-sewing jobs (ironing, pinning, cutting and more ironing). And we welcome any refreshment contributions - baking, sweet/savoury treats, wine etc…

Can’t make it to a bee? We have take-home bag kits available for collection (cut bags, straps, printed pockets and instructions). We aim to launch in Feb/March with 500 bags. We already have several hundred on the go, so we’ll make this target OK.
