We are benefitting the Women's Shelter, and we have a contest for YOU!

Slowly but surely UpcycleSLO is chugging along, meeting other creative types, pushing our boundaries of what it means to upcycle.
I want to meet someone with an idea of how to upcycle all the old couches students leave out on the streets!

We are planning a Holiday craft sale, date to be announced.  If you want to particpate write to us and tell us (details please) what you do, what materials you use and a little about yourself.  You don't have to be a uber-super-crafter with your own Etsy site. Just a creative person with maybe a few things to sell or simply show to the public, and the desire to meet others and challenge yourself to think outside the box, up the anty on your creativity, reuse what you find around you to create interesting new items.
