    On the morsbags facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/morsbags) Pol writes that there’s been a huge increase in label orders. They’re flying out into the wild, she says, (when released by the adorable, sparkly-eyed morsbaby – see photo on facebook page).

    November saw a huge number of morsbags made – the total came to 3867, made by 45 pods. Congratulations, everyone – that’s a massive number to be made by little groups of volunteers or solopoddists all over the world.

    Who are these industrious sewers? The list is a long one –

    I hope Offcuts will let me know if there are any duplicates!

    There were 13 new pod registrations –

    Meddon Morsbaggers

    Eco-Friendly LaurelHighlands
    fingerhut-vellern
    It’s In The Bag

    TickPod
    BusyBags
    KellyBraybaggers

    Congratulations squared to the pods which appear in both lists! I’m always impressed when someone doesn’t let the grass grow under their feet, when they get some labels and get started PDQ. Well done all!

    Some of the messages from new pods caught my eye.

    Meddon Morsbaggers write “A Micro Pod of one (so far) on the far North West border where Devon meets Cornwall. We aim to hold occasional, sociable, bag making sessions in our village hall.”

    fingerhut-vellern writes “Handmade with love for animals”

    School_Freimettigen in Switzerland writes –
    “The children from the 5. and 6. class will organise a session where we will create as many bags as possible. It will take place at 17.2.2016 from 13.30 to 16.30 at the school. Everyone can join us.”
    Great planning ahead here 🙂

    We have a gentleman (I assume) solopoddist, Tickpod, who writes “Lone sewer (with aid from my wife).”

    That is a lot of lovely bags. Was everyone, like us getting ready to hand out bags at the Christmas bazar. Good to see school children getting involved.

    wow, i love to see these lists. Meddon is no longer a micro pod – she’s got a group of Meddon residents together to make bags, I went and spent a morning with them, giving them a few tips, answering questions and so on to get them started. They’re only about 20 minutes or so from me, so we may get together for some events, or just communal bagmaking.

    I hope your Christmas bazaar handout went well Agwen!

    It’s nice to hear that Meddon Morsbaggers is getting on so well, Cathapple. Great that you were able to lend a little hand on the launch pad. 😀

    Like Offcuts, I was amazed at the number of morsbags made last month. Good work handing them all out. 😀

    Double post, but let’s use the space to mention Tesco’s figures on plastic bag use since the charge came in……

    We handed out 75 bags at our Christmas Bazaar. We thought our village would be swamped with morsbags by now but no, there were still people who didn’t know about morsbags. We will just have to keep educating them.
