Shopping Bags

As of February 1st, Quadra Island is completely plastic shopping bag free! Island merchants no longer carry plastic shopping bags, instead customers can either bring their own bags or purchase one of the cool, re-usable Q bags for $1.25.

Of course, being a yarn store we have all sorts of ideas for making your own re-usable shopping bags! Be sure to ask about patterns and yarns that would be perfect for an all-purpose shopping bag.

If you would like to read more about the bag-free decision, check out this news report.
