SNAP TO IT — Crystal Family and Community Education Club members Jane Fisher and Nita Simpson recently taught a snap-bag workshop at the Obion County Farm Bureau building. A snap bag is unique because the opening uses a section of a carpenter’s metal measuring tape. This is a useful project and people can use their imaginations when they are putting fabric colors together. Two pieces of fabric folded and pressed into a prairie point are used to pull open the bag and then it just snaps back into place since it has the carpenter metal tape sewn inside the opening. Pockets and a plastic liner can be added to the interior. Monogramming on the fabric could dress it up even more, a spokesman said. To receive the instructions on making a snap bag, email University of Tennessee Extension agent Benita Giffin at firstname.lastname@example.org. Among those attending the recent workshop were (clockwise, from left) Mrs. Fisher, Peggy Lancaster, Mary Louise Davis, Mrs. Simpson, Mary Dunavant, Herta Demoulin, Rochelle McClain, Nadine Killion and Alice Fennel.
