Coming to Los Angeles - Nov 16th!
What's that you say? You need more awesomeness in your life? I could not agree more! Well, here is your chance!
Felt Club (http://www.feltclub.com/) is rolling back into town on Sunday, November 16th and bringing Swap-O-Rama-Rama (http://www.hiplinemedia.com/swaporamarama.html) with it! Come find out for yourself what you've been missing -- the goodness starts at 11am at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Felt Club is an indie craft fair that is more than just vendors! There, you'll find crafty workshops, music and more. And when you're crafty little fingers start to itch, hie thee to Swap-O-Rama-Rama and make something. Swap-O-Rama-Rama is part clothing swap and part DIY workshop.
Here's how it works: you bring a bag of clothes to donate (and so does everyone else), which gets sorted out by volunteers. You find something you like and carry it to one of several DIY work stations, where you will learn - hands on! - how to sew, re-construct, de-construct, silk screen, and more. Local artists, fashion designers, teachers, and volunteers (LIKE ME!) will be onsite to help you transform your newfound goodies into gold! All the materials that you will need are supplied. All you need is some old clothes and a little imagination and you can leave Swap-O-Rama-Rama with a whole new wardrobe!
These events count on word-of-mouth support, so please tell your friends!
I will be volunteering at Swap-O-Rama-Rama all day, so stop by and see me! Maybe we can make something together!
