France Bags!

They arrived, despite the covid-19 issues. I can't wait to use them, but on lockdown at the moment, so only going out if an emergency. A lovely sunny day in France. Thank you and stay safe yourselves.

Russia Bags!

Hello. I am Irina from Novosibirsk (Russia), I received 3 bags from you.  I really liked the birds depicted on the bags. In general, I try to make bird feeders and feed them, especially in winter.
I attach photos, as far as I know, you publish them on your website.

Kind of bleak…
Hey peeps, how are you doing? Hanging in there? The news here just keeps getting worse. What a mess we are all in, only good thing is we are all in it together. THANK YOU, if you are a healthcare worker on the front lines. I admire your talent, strength and courage through all of this. Kudos and keep on keeping us all safe. And, the rest of you, stay home! Stay safe. I heart you all. XOXO--Teresa

UPDATE: Berlin, Maryland Chapter

Shout out to anyone in the Maryland area that can donate fabric to Tracey and her sewing people??? You can contact me and I'll happily get you in touch with Tracey. The first bag from Isabelle looks amazing. Great work ladies! :) Teresa
Well it’s been a really slow start for my new Berlin MD chapter.   I haven’t had any luck getting material donated.  I finally ordered some online that was on sale just so I could get some to my sewers.  I’m attaching a picture of the first bag completed by Bagette Isabelle D. She is using material she has at home.  She added a small loop and button so you can keep it folded up in your purse!!!  Now hoping we can get some out to people soon!

Look at all these great bags Bagette Barbara is making! Great job! I'm sure you have more time than ever to sew now. :) Teresa

Hi Teresa.

A couple of weeks ago, I pulled out my fabric stash and sewing machine and made these bags. As you can see, a couple are Christmas bags, some are French themed bags, and other miscellaneous ones. I now have bags to give out to new friends here.
