Sew-In Pop Up at ONE FAIR in Kingston, NY is part of a roving community sew in making reusable grocery bags, community connections, and creative solutions to climate concerns.
Instar Lodge's pop up Sew-In began as a mother-son project to sew reusable grocery bags out of repurposed materials in response to overwhelming feelings about climate change. The project seeded an idea growing to be a roving, monthly Community Action Club beginning September 2019. Working in collaboration with local schools and community organizations, all Sew-In veggie bags are offered to the public by donation at local grocers. All pop up Sew-In's are free and participatory. No sewing experience required.
