If you can’t make it to a ‘WANAKA BAG’ Sewing Drive today there’s still a way you can help. Put your sewing skills to good use help by making a bag or two with our pre-cut kits.

Pre-cut bag kits can be picked up from Gina at Wanaka Wastebusters, Cnr Ballantyne and Riverbank Roads, open 9am-5pm, 7 days.

If you already have a kit and need a little more help drop us a line and we’ll make sure you get the support you need.

Below are a bunch of photos which show you all the various elements of the design.
