Swap-O-Rama-Rama

Every 3rd Saturday with Cecelia "CC" Clark

Donations Appreciated!

Swap-O-Rama-Rama is the world's largest volunteer produced clothing swap and DIY sewing workshops that teaches participants, on every continent except Antarctica, how to extend the usefulness of their textile goods and forestalling their entering the waste stream by re-purposing, upcycling or just plain o' repairing.

Swap-O-Rama-Rama has gathered for the grand-daddy of all clothing swaps at Maker Faires in San Mateo to re-purpose 4000lbs of textiles in 2 days. This MeetUp group is a way to keep spreading our mission year-round by teaching the community how to creatively reduce textile waste, recruit new volunteers and enjoy each others company and wisdom while helping the planet.

HOW IT WORKS
Bring a bag of your CLEAN unwanted clothes for FREE entry or $5 and a bag to take you new found (or made) treasures home, a snack to share and a creative need to make a difference. (No one is turned away for lack of funds). Sewing machines, experienced coaches and inspiration provided.
