Swap * Learn * Watch * Make
It's easy to make the move from consumer to creator - and it's fun. At the Swap-O-Rama-Rama you'll find a host of talent brought together to teach you how to transform you new/used duds into works of your own. Together they bring you: DIY Stations where you can learn many wonderful ways to create out of textile reuse, Sewing Stations where local designers will teach you fresh clothing mod tricks, on site Silk Screeners & Stencilers with a host of original designs and extraordinary local designers who'll show off their work in the Swap-O-Rama-Rama reuse fashion show. Plus take home as much clothing as you can carry. Remainders will go to the Goodwill. Wondering what to bring?
