Holy Cow did we have fun at Swap-O-Rama-Rama! The above photo of our core group of organizers was taken after a long, hectic but awesome day of sewing, screening, and swapping. Lori Petitti (far right) has organizational skills like you wouldn't believe and produced another awesome show. On top of which she manned a sewing station all day! Everyone really got into the spirit of the event and helped each other work on projects, find clothes and come up with ideas for altering and embellishing their finds. One of the rules for SORR is no mirrors which is to encourage people to interact with one another and ask someone else for their opinion. I have to say it definitely worked! There was a lot of teaching and helping going on among participants at the sewing stations too and that's exactly how it's supposed to happen. We've got another one coming up in November so keep checking back for details and I'll hope to see you there!
