What is B-More Bags?

B-More Bags is an innovative social enterprise started in 2005 where volunteers design and sew beautiful, functional & affordable fabric bags using designer materials.

The skill level required for seamstresses ranges from novice to advanced with opportunities for non-sewers.

What do volunteers do?

Volunteers participate in a variety of activities: sewing, designing prototypes, sourcing bags, cutting patterns, sorting fabric & embellishments, keeping the sewing shop organized, & helping with sales events & promotion.

Sewing can be done at home or in the sewing shop.

There is no minimum requirement for how many hours volunteers contribute.
