Swap-O-Rama-Rama is an international community of clothing swaps and do-it-yourself workshops in which community explores creative reuse through the recycling of used clothing.
The Swap When you attend the swap bring at least one bag of your unwanted clothing and a small donation ($5 suggested). Every swap begins with a giant collective pile of clothing, the unwanted clothing of all who attend. Everyone is welcome to dive in and find their next new/used items from the pile. Take as little or as much clothing from this pile as you like, it’s all free.
DIY Workshops After you have chosen your new clothes slide on over to one of the sewing stations and attend a workshop. Learn to make modifications or totally transform your finds. Each swap features a variety of workshops by local artists who are there to share their sewing and modification secrets with you. All the materials you need to sew, embroider, bead, fix, repair, knit etc, are suppled.
On Site DIY Stations Swap-O-Rama-Rama also offers on site DIY with skilled artists to help you get started. You’ll find designers with sewing machines ready to teach you how to make modifications to your new/used duds. Or you might try the hand sew area and decoration station where you can learn to embroider, knit, crochet, etc.
