Swap-O-Rama-Rama is a clothing swap and series of do-it-yourself workshops in which a community explores creative reuse through recycling. Help save the environment (and get a new spring wardrobe). Bring in those forgotten clothes, swap them for something new and then get creative! You get access to everything from sewing machines to silk screens, and all the supplies and coaching you’ll need to make new outfits, bags, jewelry and more. If you’re fashion-independent, green-minded, or DIY-centric, this is for you!
• tons of swapped clothes available for your creative rescue
• volunteer-assisted sewing machines
• silk-screening stations
• workshops in sewing, button and jewelry making, embroidery, knitting and fabric art
• fashion shows
• live music & more!
