In April 2018, Outpost Bay View introduced Boomerang Bags; a grassroots community driven global movement of reusable bags. Bags are sewn by volunteers using donated fabric and cloth and are free for customers to use and bring back (like a boomerang). The goal is to reduce plastic (and paper) bags and engaging our great co-op community.
Boomerang Bags are now available in two Shorewood, WI, locations! To help us stock the racks at the Shorewood Public Library and Metro Market, please join us at our next Sewing Bee! We'll be at the Shorewood Village Center (lower level of the Shorewood Public Library) from 10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Want to do more events with the Boomerang Sewing Bees? Join their sewing group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1019154868142167/!
Volunteers must be at least 13, but no sewing experience is needed. You can help by cutting, ironing, or pinning. We’ll provide fabric and supplies. You don’t have to bring anything, but you’re welcome to bring a portable sewing machine, an iron and ironing board, or any tools like cutting mats and wheels, scissors, or measuring tapes. We also welcome donations of clean fabric and clean reusable bags.
Come join in the community building fun!
