Lovely! Sounds like you’ve got a super group developing, Cathapple! 😀November 4, 2014 at 11:36 pm #3355November 5, 2014 at 10:17 am #3356
That does look like fun! The ladies holding up finished bags are absolutely thrilled with them, and with the fun of making them! 😀

what’s good is that 3 newbies came along yesterday – i like to take a pic of people with the first morsbage they make, the other newbie was chris, the camera shy (tho i did get the top of his head!) demon cutter – he cut out loads of bags and took some duvet covers away to cut at home. the ladies all took sets of 10 bags to make at home – we’re trying to build up the bag stash so we can supply a pop up crafts shop in bude in december – we’re talking about having a fabric drop off point there for morsbags, and me being there sometimes making bags (it’s on for 3 weeks so can’t be there all the time!) – thanks off uts for doing the tech stuff for me again!November 5, 2014 at 7:29 pm #3359
We know a good cutter-outer when we see one! Hang on to him!! 😉November 5, 2014 at 7:34 pm #3360
Having a specialised cutter-outer is an advantage! There are so many talents needed, and different roles to be found in a pod. I hope the pop-up crafts shop is a success, and the handing out and sewing there. 😀
We were out for a trip today and passed a library with interesting window displays and an invitation to organise your own display there “to brighten up our windows”. I thought “I know how to do that”, but it’s quite a distance away and I’m not sure if I could make the journey to arrange it, then set up the display, then go (probably more than once) to sew in the library.
Sorry Cathapple, hihgjacking your thread……November 6, 2014 at 1:40 pm #3361
hijack away, lol – this thread’s wandering about a bit anyway!November 13, 2014 at 7:46 pm #3367
What an interesting thread. It is great to read about other people’s achievements and ideas. That pod is growing fast Cathapple and looks very good fun. A cutter-outer – hmmmm sighs……….
You do a huge amount Beattie and I have a strong feeling the library though a tempting invitation could be a venue too far!February 1, 2015 at 9:45 am #3551
update – we now have 35 members and am enjoying our once a month get togethers. i’ve encouraged people to make bags at home inbetween times, so our pod total is rising steadily. one of our pod has encouraged us to try and get onto page 1 of the pods totals list (!) so we’re enjoying seeing who the next pod is to overtake, lol – we’re on Boomerang Bags’ shoulder at the moment!
i’m going to try and put us “out there” more this year, now we’re established, attending a few events. so i’ll be looking on here fir ideas about how to “decorate” a morsbags stall and what’s needed for doing events – a bit nerve wracking organising something like that, but it’ll be good to go beyond taking bags to beach cleans for volunteers etc.
i’ve found that having a facebook page has been crucial in helping our pod to grow, and it’s a goid central place for both me and pod members to post info, photos etc – it’s very much a shared resource, so it’s lovely to see people posting pics and keeping me informed of how many bags they’ve made at home – yay for modern technology!
who’d have thought that less than a year ago i was a solitary bagmaker, this is so much more fun!
