Snag-a-bag swap

For FOBA 2024, we’d like to have some fun with our conference carry-all bag. We will be holding a snag-a-bag swap and sale.

Grab one of those bags from your conference tote collection and up-cycle it! You can repurpose one you already have by marbling, painting, dyeing, printing, collaging, embroidering or generally embellishing the bag into a new, one-of-a-kind collector’s item.

Bring it to the 2024 conference to swap it for a different one, then locate the new owner of your bag and start a new friendship. Bag options: Feel free to use conference reusable bags, reusable plastic or fabric grocery bags or fabric tote bags.

Volunteers will also embellish some donated bags in time for the 2024 conference—see the examples pictured to the right!

These will be available to swap or purchase (for attendees that don’t want to bring an embellished bag to trade). If you would like to purchase an embellished bag, your $20 donation will support the Colleen Cavin Fellowship program. The snag-a-bag swap and sale is optional for conference attendees, and there is no requirement to participate. All FOBA conference attendees will receive a conference welcome bag.
