The ultimate community clothing swap and DIY upcycled clothing workshop is back and better than ever!  Bring at least one bag of your unwanted (but clean!) clothes to contribute, then dive in and find the treasures you would like to keep.  Take your finds home as is, or head over to our sewing room where volunteers with sewing machines will help you alter or transform your new duds.  Sewing notions provided.  The event also features sculptural artwork created with upcycled plastic shopping bags by local MFA student Ifeoma Anyaeji.
