Bonnie Combs of Bird Brain Designs will be hosting our Repurposed Tote Bag Workshop also during market hours. Participants will learn how to upcycle those unrecyclable bird seed and animal feed bags into adorable and useful tote bags. The class costs $10 and will run 9:30-11:30. Materials will be provided and you will leave with your very own upcycled tote bag. Sewing skills are needed as well as a sewing machine (there will be a few will be available to borrow.) Preregistration is required as there are limited spots. Email Jocelyn Murzycki if you are interested - [email protected].
We will also have Cub Scout Pack 316 collecting bottles and cans for their can drive.
All of these fun recycling events in addition to our weekly vendors. We hope to see you!
