Swap & Sew: Clothing Swap & DIY Upcycled Clothing Project

SORRLogo“Clean out your closet and call your mama, it’s time for Swap-O-Rama-Rama!”

Swap-O-Rama-Rama is a community clothing swap and series of do-it-yourself workshops in which attendees explore the process of reuse and collective creativity with staff and fellow attendees. This hands-on creation experience is a great way to meet new people, slow the production of new textiles and keep old clothes out of the landfill.

Meet at American Steel’s “back door” to socialize while we swap clothes and ideas. This month’s project will be a surprise!

Bring: clothing to swap and any very large pieces of fabric (like sheets, tablecloths and curtains).
