Philly Etsy Team at Swap-o-Rama-Rama

The Philly Sewing Collective’s event today was by all accounts a success. Swap-o-Rama-Rama, a clothing swap which was held at the Old Pine Community Center, featured workshops, a fashion show, a dj and vegan baked goods by Baked and Miss Rachel’s Traveling Fare.

Members of the Philly Etsy Team were there, leading some of the workshops on sewing and manning a team table where we gave out handmade goody bags to the first 100 people who signed up for our mailing list. The goody bags were filled with items which were donated by our team members. Swap-o-Rama-Rama was held as part of Design Philadelphia 2008.

As you can see, much laughter and swapping (and eating, yum) ensued. Thanks to all who attended! I personally (Beth) got some great beads from Pidge and some kid’s craft supplies from Angela and Mary which I have already begun using for art therapy materials at work (one kid already used up most of the jewels!) Shanda and Lynn got beads as well, and I saw Amber walk away with some fabric. The treats brought and shared were great, thanks to all who cooked and shopped. I think this would be a great event to hold once every few months and I am happy to host again. More pictures to be posted in a bit!
