    5403 morsbags were made in October 2019.

    That’s an amazing number, only beaten by three other months since morsbags was started, and those other three months were all in the last year, headed by our first SewVember in 2018.

    So we’re doing it again – https://morsbags.com/forums/topic/sewvember-2019-are-you-in/

    Welcome to you all! I see that some new pods have already started making morsbags – brilliant!
    Will you be joining in with SewVember? It’s turning into an annual event where everyone taking part makes a bag every day in November (or makes a bag every day that they can during November).

    Interesting comments

    3Ps In A Pod writes from Singapore –

    “Pod named after my kids, the 3P’s. Making Morsbags with my Mum so we can help make the earth (that will be inherited by the next generation) a better one, with less plastic bags. We hope to create awareness in the kids and that they may grow into adults who are more conscious of caring for creation”

    That’s such a great ambition, and just what morsbags was started for.

    South Gwent Pod updated their pod statement –

    “Great news, the pod has made over 300 bags. We’re loving converting cast offs into nice bags and giving them away. More sewers are coming on board all the time. Very excited to see The Make Spot in Chepstow has started a pod too, watch for a special Morsbag make day there soon. Thanks everyone, fantastic work.”

    Keep us updated on how you get on – I love it when pods get together!

    You’re doing a great job sending out the label orders Ivybags. I’m sure it gives you an accurate picture of mors-activity.
