Now that the craziness of our Swap is over, we would like to give a special thanks to Cate Trujillo and Erin Scholl for their hard work and inventiveness creating the graphics for both UpcycleSLO and the Swap-o-rama-rama event.

Both of these creative and inspiring ladies deserve a big round of applause!!!! THANK YOU!
UpcycleSLO's Monthly Craft Night starts this coming Thursday, May 20 from 6-8 pm!!

Join us at The Sanitarium Bed and Breakfast, at 1716 Osos St, between Gus' Deli and Sallie Loo Cafe. We will start the series of monthly crafty soirees with a T-shirt Bag demo. Bring a t-shirt you are ready to upcycle, and your sewing notions. A sewing machine will be available as well as fabric markers to adorn your new bag that you can use for farmer's market, the beach, or future craft nights!

Invite a friend if you want, but please RSVP by Thursday morning if you will be coming, email or call Sara at 540-1673. A small donation of $3 will help UpcycleSLO stock up on sewing notions and other supplies for upcoming fairs and community workshops.

Pillowcase skirts, earrings, and more... Plus I am going to start linking everything to the awesome sites that give us inspiration so you can share it with us. It's a great thing to be inspired and there is so much inspiration around us! Do you think I have worn out the word "inspiration" yet? :)
