“Sew Grey Lynn”


Over 100 BYO Bags Grey Lynn have been sewn by our team with more than 70 donated so far to help businesses in the West Lynn and Richmond Rd retail areas become Plastic Bag Free! More bags were given away at the Grey Lynn Farmers Market on 1st July for the worldwide Plastic Bag free day.

Upcoming Sew Grey Lynn dates for your calendar, at the Grey Lynn RSC,
1-5pm: Saturday 4th August, 1st September, 13th October & 3rd November

Please bring a sewing machine, overlocker, extension cord, pins and scissors if you have them. Please tell your friends also. There are tasks to do if you are like some of us and cannot sew. Please contact Lynn by email greylynn2030@gmail.com for any questions you may have.

We would like to thank the businesses who generously donated beautiful fabric, Honey Wrap, Dalston and Trove; webbing for bag handles from ReThink and Webbing & Tapes. We would also like to acknowledge the RSC who provide the venue free of charge for this community initiative.

On Saturday 7th July, the sewers joined in for the nationwide Boomerang Bag Sewing Working Bee for Plastic Bag free July. 31 bags were completed, which were given to participating Grey Lynn businesses. Awesome effort, thank you to those who joined in.
