The SWAP: Arrive promptly at noon to exchange your clean, usable, clothes for some "new to you” clothes; bring your friends and neighbors and your washed, gently worn items to our fabulous swap room where clothing will be set out by type (pants, shirts, dresses, etc.) and size!  Choose items and take them home. We have mirrors, but no dressing rooms, so plan accordingly. Leftovers are donated to charity. All clothing sizes welcome! 
The SEW: Bring fabric items you want to mend, your sewing machine if you have one (we will have some available), and any sewing notions you need or want to donate (thread, buttons, patches, pins, etc.) Coaches from Fixit Clinic and Swap-o-rama-rama ( will be on hand to consult on repairs to your favorite fabric/textile items and to teach you to sew or to help reacquaint you with your sewing machine.

The FIX: From 1 – 4 pm Fixit Clinic coaches ( will consult on repairing or tuning up your non-working sewing machine and other carry-in household items. Walk-ins are always welcome, but it helps to register in advance so the Fixit Coaches know what to expect at
