Feelin’ Crafty? It’s time for Swap-O-Rama-Rama!


What’s a Swap-O-Rama-Rama? Well, it’s a longish story, but the short version is that it’s a one-day event where you can learn hands-on how to recycle and upcycle clothing. Volunteers with expertise in screen printing, sewing, jewelry-making, knitting, crocheting and more are there to help you learn or you can go solo, making use of provided sewing machines and other supplies.
