Maker Meetup: Produce Bag Sewing at the Sunnyvale Library
I'll be facilitating a cloth produce sewing bag workshop at the Sunnyvale Library. Sorry for any confusion, but please register for this through the following link, NOT ON Meetup: The library will handle/track registrations and I wanted to get the word out here. Here's the program description: Local blogger, Anne-Marie Bonneau, The Zero-Waste Chef, will lead a free class on sewing cloth produce bags to use for food shopping in place of plastic bags. We will have lightweight fabric, notions, thread and a limited number of sewing machines on hand but if you have any of these items, please bring them. Take some bags home with you and leave some behind for distributing free at the Sunnyvale Farmers’ Market in the fall. Cloth and sewing machines provided. Space is limited to 30 spots. And here's a blog post inspired by our first produce bag sewing meetup in my home:

    What we're about

    Are you interested in decluttering, detrashing and streamlining your world into a beautiful zero waste lifestyle? This meetup is designed to practically train and support anyone starting their zero waste journey. Each month attendees can offer a 'show and tell' of their zero waste wins and we'll each set new personal goals for the coming month. We'll cover topics like making your own toothpaste, deodorant, laundry powder, finding plastic free options, buying in bulk, food management tips, containers, urban gardening, kid's lunches and the list goes on! Come to mentor others or come as a newbie looking for support and friends. Zero waste newbies can start learning from the manual 'Detrash Your Life in 90 Days' ( or 'Zero Waste Home' ( available on Amazon. There is a lot to learn, but the rewards are enormous! Zero waste living is one of the most powerful steps you can take to save money, eat healthier and avoid toxic chemicals from entering your home. Zero waste living is important because all the stuff we throw away quite possibly has an even bigger environmental footprint than transportation or household energy, making up 30 percent of your total environmental footprint. We are looking forward to meeting you!
