- Introduction: Not one, not two, but three awesome opportunities in one: 1) a clothing swap, 2) fabric/textile repair and 3) a Fixit Clinic!
It’s the Albany Clothing Swap…only bigger and better! Not one, not two, but three awesome opportunities in one event.
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 Swap-o-rama-rama (http://www.meetup.com/Bay-Area-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: Bring your sewing machine if it needs repair or a tune-up or if you need help (re) learning to use it. We'll help you get back to sewing!
