The Sewing Rebellion is a FREE workshop!
I WANT YOU, to emancipate yourself from the global garment industry by learning the skills to alter, mend and make your own garments!
Encouraging the REUSE, RENOVATION and RECYCLING of existing garments and textiles in the creation of unique items tailored to YOUR taste and body shape.
BRING: garments to mend and alter; sewing problems to solve; or fabric to use, swap, or donate – free patterns on site to utilize and construct
WHEN: Every 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month (unless otherwise noted)
TIME: Noon to 4pm
WHERE: The Ames Progressive – located at 118 Hayward Avenue, Suite #3 in Ames, in the same building as The Ark Pet Shop, Domino’s Pizza, Nite Owl Printing and Scallion Korean Restaurant (just go around back, or take the side entrance and follow the hallway)
The SEWING REBELLION began in the fall of 2006 @ Mess Hall, a community cultural center on the North Side of Chicago. It began as a monthly free sewing workshop and clothing exchange. In January 2007, it was decided that a rebellion couldn’t happen once a month.
Weekly meetings on Sunday afternoons were established until May of 2007, when Frau Fiber became itinerant. The SEWING REBELLION as Mess Hall (www.messhall.org), continues today.
Frau Fiber’s intention is to bring the SEWING REBELLION to communities around the country, where she lay’s the ground work for an economy of STOP SHOPPING, START SEWING!
Where is Frau Fiber now? Visit her site for all the latest news.
