Heidi Wakeman and Frieda Grotjahn -Again and Again 2010 Design Your Own Handbag Contest

The contest which is free to enter and money raised through the auction of your cleverly designed sailbag goes directly to supporting the GHS Sailing program which gets Gloucester kids out on Gloucester harbor for no cost to them.

Frieda’s Again and Again shop makes bags from recycled sails.  Instead of these sails clogging up landfills they are put to good use as gorgeous and functional bags made from this durable and water repellant material.  You can learn more about the design your own sailbag contest in the video we made coming tomorrow
