The HEARTH Designer Wine Bag Project

ALL NEW!  Available at our Purses with a Purpose event!

One of our dedicated volunteers, Susan Mucha, has come up with a beautiful idea to help HEARTH. She has been busy coordinating volunteers with sewing skills, including herself, and finding fabrics to create designer wine bags.

Volunteers are busy making fantastic bags, each one unique. The varied fabrics have been donated by Loom Fabric in the Strip District. All material and work is 100% donated, which means 100% of the money collected for these goes directly to HEARTH.

These will be available for $20 each at the Purses with a Purpose event on Sunday, December 4, 2016. Our goal is to have 100 wine bags available for purchase. You can’t beat the cost of something so unique and creative. If you are coming to this event, consider buying one for yourself. Plus these are a great gift idea!

We are working on plans to make these available at future events in 2017, and possibly at HEARTH.  More information to come. We are excited about this new opportunity and give kudos to Susan for inventing and coordinating such a great project!

Scroll down to see many sample of these wine bags, more fabrics that will be made into bags, and the work in progress.  If you want to volunteer to help, please contact Vicky Gill at vlgill@hearth-bp.org. Thank you for your support!
