Swap-O-Rama-Rama Recap

Swap-O-Rama-Rama took place today at the Des Moines Social Club and it was a blast! The idea behind it is "a clothing swap and series of do-it-yourself workshops in which a community explores creative reuse through the recycling of used clothing".

Upon choosing from other people's gently loved clothes, there were workshops on screen-printing, altering, and embellishing your "new" threads to make them a little more personal.

In addition to the new threads, attendees also received the latest copy of ReadyMade & a swag bag filled with all kinds of goodies from local craftsters.

My reconstructed tee shirt bag included a zine from Craft Leftovers, a featherband from Whiskerpaws, a pin from Monster Fashion, earrings from JustAddColor, a juicy candle from Jadewicks, and a couple extra things. What a score!

Major props to organizers Kelsey Blessman & Stephanie Renee for making this event such a success. Hope to see more things like this in Des Moines in the future!
