Volunteers are needed to sew veggie bags for the Cool Davis Festival on Saturday, Oct. 12. Pre-cut fabric and simple directions are available for any who wish to sew cloth bags that replace plastic bags in the vegetable and bulk aisles in the grocery.
The bags are stamped with a Cool Davis stamp and are given free to festival visitors to encourage them to bring their own bags.
Those interested in donating fabric or sewing bags should contact Nancy Sweitzer at [email protected]. Lightweight cotton is needed for veggie bags and canvas and upholstery fabric for heavier shopping bags.
