Bring any size bag of your unwanted clothes-swap them for something new and then get creative! At Swap-O-Rama-Rama you get access to everything from sewing machines to silk screens, and all the supplies and coaching you’ll need to make an amazing garment, a new tote or anything you can dream up.
Swap-O-Rama-Rama is a clothing swap and series of do-it-yourself workshops originally organized by Wendy Treymayne (http://swaporamarama.org) in which a community explores creative reuse through the recycling of used clothing.
When you attend the swap bring a bag of your unwanted clothing is possible and a small donation. Every swap begins with a giant collective pile of clothing, the unwanted clothing of all who attend. Everyone is welcome to dive in and find their next new/used items from the pile. Take as little or as much clothing from this pile as you like, it’s all free.
After you have chosen your new clothes slide on over to one of the sewing stations and attend a workshop. Learn to make modifications or totally transform your finds. Each swap features a variety of workshops by local artists who are there to share their sewing and modification secrets with you. All the materials you need to sew, embroider, bead, fix, repair, knit etc, are supplied.
IF YOU HAVE A SKILLS such as sewing, embroidery, knitting, screen-printing and other applicable abilities we would love to have you volunteer to help run this great event! Email us firstname.lastname@example.org
