Hi Claire, sorry you had a bad reaction and you didn’t make your target. May I say that it’s the 297 that matter, not those 3 still waiting to be done. So well done, give yourself a pat on the back for all that work and saving all that platic from going into the environment!
My stock of fabric has ket me going but if I ever needed any, I just asked friends and family and also put a note in every door down the street! I don’t know where you are but if you are near Leicester, I can probably help you out with some. Send a message via Monty Morsbags facebook page. Best wishes Ann
Thank you for your reply Hetty and yes, I meant Morsbaggers local to me in Leicester, uk. There are a lot of us in Leicestershire, uk. There are quite a lot of us in Leicestershire, and it is easier for us to work together for events. Thank you for your reply and I’m sure your food bank will be grateful. Best wishes. Ann
Hi All and well done everyone for such amazing efforts during this pandemic. It was good to feel as though I was doing something to help. I started by making masks for the family and that rapidly developed to carers and shopworkers who couldn’t get masks at that time. My little stash of beautiful cotton pieces that I could not bear to throw away came into it’s own! My road has a whatsapp group so that we can all help each other and that became the order line for further masks. As I had been in shielding since the start, I was confident my masks were Covid free! Added to that, they were in quarantine for 3 days before giving away (in clean envelopes). I recently did 2 socially distanced handouts. One for the Macmillan Coffee Morning and the other for Great Glen Walking Market. All bags were in quarantine for 3 days before the event. I had bags on a stand with table in front. I wore mask and gloves and asked people to point to the bag they would like and then put it on the table for them. Everyone was happy to take them. No-one said anything about spreading Covid. At the walking market, Jan from FabGbags and I just put them over our arms and, as it was outdoors, handed them to anyone who wanted them. Again masks and gloves were worn. No rooting through the bags was allowed – if you touched it, it was yours 😀 It was great to be out again. It can be done, so if you feel confident enough, I recommend it. Sally South Bags have been making bags for the Salvation Army Foodbank throughout. Sadly, there are even more calls on the foodbank these days and we can’t make enough! If anyone has an excess of bags they would like to donate, they would be very grateful. Ask me for details. Love and best wishes to everyone and virtual hugs to anyone struggling at this difficult time. Ann x
Thanks Toria. Will get my thinking hat on. What about a tour of local charity shops? At least we could be inside 👍😂
Thank you for your kind words Beattie. High praise indeed. I shall pass it on to t’other ladies. They are all lovely and we try to keep standards up.
I’ll think about a guerilla bagging. Bit cold to be outside. Might look for another cafe 😉
I’m trying to add to my tally and the website won’t allow it. I can add to the other pods I keep tally for, just not Monty Morsbags. Can you tell me who to contact about it?
Many thanks. Ann (Monty Morsbags)
Are you throwing down the gauntlet Beattie? Definately sounds like a challenge 😉 I shall keep sewing over Christmas, even if it is only to keep my mits off the mince pies 🙄 Have a lovely Christmas and thanks for keeping us in the picture. I really look forward to your monthly reports.
