Open Call for Swap-O-Rama-Rama

You may have already heard that Bazaar Bizarre is presenting Swap-O-Rama-Rama this year but did you know it marks the Swap's debut in Southern California? SORR is a huge clothing swap and DIY event where folks bring in bags of unwanted clothes, sort throught the piles that everyone else brought and pick as many new things as they'd like, and then hit the various DIY sewing, embroidery and silkscreening stations to create wonderful new things. It's going to be a lot of fun and of course the best part is we're helping people express their creativity through clothing while keeping textile waste out of the landfills.
Right now we're having an Open Call for designers, silkscreeners, seamstresses, and DIY types of all kinds to participate in this event. We also need people to help sort as we're anticipating approximately 10,000 lbs. of free clothes! More details are in this PDF, or you can email Lori from Hip Line Media to volunteer now.
