Albany Clothing Swap and Sew
Tuesday | July 18, 2017 | 7:30 pm — 9:00 pm
Albany Community Center | 1249 Marin Avenue, Albany, CA 94706
wo awesome opportunities in one – clothing swap and fabric/textile repair!
The Swap: Bring your clean, usable, but no longer wanted used clothes and find some “new to you” clothes. Bring your friends and neighbors and one or more bags of 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 and clothing items you want to mend, your sewing machine (we will have one available if you don’t have one), and any sewing notions you need or want to donate (thread, buttons, patches, pins, etc. – again, we will have some.) Sewing coaches will be on hand with a sewing machine and other tools to help you repair your favorite fabric items or help reacquaint you with your sewing machine.
