Come join my pod!

Reading the new Frankie (as you do) and I came across Morsbags. I quote “Morsbags is part of a global community project that helps people come together and sew up fabric bags out of recycled material, then give them away to encourage others to stop using plastic.”
I couldn’t see a Melbourne/Victoria (as I know we’ve got regional crafty peeps out there) so I made one called “VicPod”. Wanna join my pod? I’ve just registered it this morning, so if you check the site over the next day or two it should be there for you to join. – To find the pod, go to, click on”POD PAGE” and then “TOP OF THE PODS”, if you scroll down that list, near the bottom (with 0 bags made) is vicpod. Click on it and it should take you to our pod page.

And I’ll do the Facebook thing too.

First podding day will probably be in mid January 09 – probably a central city location, I’ll find a venue and get some gear together and then we can bag out together!

    I would love to, but I’m not a VIC pod anymore…I’m a NSW pod :o(

    Such a great idea – wish I could, but I’m in Sydney. Maybe I’ll have to look them up. Thanks for the hook up!

    Hi Drewzel
    Sounds like fun, I’d love to join the pod. I love making bags.

    Hello! What a great idea. I can’t sew at all otherwise I’d love to join but… I am a co-creator of a new literary zine Story To… and I’d love to give away some of the bags you make to some of our lucky readers. If you’re interested my contact details are on our website: Kate x

    Kate, I’ll get in touch about some baggy giveaways. And you don’t have to be able to sew to join in…can you cut around a pattern, squash things flat with an iron, fold material, chat and drink, or hand bags out….then you’re in!!!
