Oh, hey, you love The Strand? Us too! While it’s hard to argue with the merits of reusable tote bags — something about the environment, I think? — the folks at Williamsburg craft resource SPACECRAFT invite you to put down your Strand/Park Slope Food Coop/n+1 portable advertisement and pick up a needle and thread. This Saturday from 2-5pm, anti-plastic crusaders from Bags for the People will be on hand to lead Brooklynites through the basics of making reusable shopping bags with personal flair. Just BYO fabric scraps — an old shirt works, too — and for a $7 suggested donation, they’ll have stitching your way to sustainability in no time.
SPACECRAFT, is at 355 Bedford Ave. between S. 3rd and S. 4th Streets.
