Handmade Philly + Swap-O-Rama-Rama

n1426196619_5248Bring your under-worn clothing, your unused materials and your urge to upcycle to this year’s Swap-O-Rama-Rama. The annual extravaganza, sponsored by Philadelphia Sewing Collective, Design Philadelphia and Girls Rock Philly, offers DIY demonstrations including sewing and silkscreening as well as pounds and pounds of exchangeable clothing and accessories. Handmade Philly represents with a workshop on appliqué, the reuse of old fabrics to embroider and embellish clothing. As part of the local creative community, we’re excited to support this event on Sunday October 11, from noon to 5pm at The Old Pine Community Center at 401 Lombard Street in downtown Philly. Hope to see you there!
