The Valley Project, in North East Valley Dunedin, have been great supporters of Bags For Good since we started in 2017. They have provided their rooms for our sewing bees, collected fabric and even sewing machines on our behalf, and now have joined the growing number of outlets where our Bought To Support bags can be purchased.
Our wonderful volunteer-made bags are available to buy from reception between 10am-2pm Monday to Friday.
Also available will be our pre-cut bag packs, for those who wish to sew their own bags with all the hard work of finding fabric, working out the size and pattern, and cutting it out. The instructions which come with the packs are easy to follow and give some great sewing tips that can come in handy in a variety of situations.
Money raised from the Bought To Support bags will be used to start a bag library at The Valley Project; enabling Kai Share and other wonderful groups who use the space to use the bags when needed, adding another element to the community sharing that is such a wonderful part of the Valley Project.
