Have we forgotten our roots or were they just smarter back then? Today we think we're clever if we remember to bring our own bags to the grocery store and feel pretty virtuous for going "green." Feed sacks were the ultimate green packaging. The sacks held feed for chickens, hogs and more. Don't forget about the smaller flour and sugar sacks. When these items were emptied, thrifty folks re-purposed these sacks again and again.
For the June program, I will give a brief history of feed sacks. Come see fun feed sack items and feed sack quilts.
