Sewing Rebellion

Sunday, November 19, 2006
Join the Sewing rebellion! Take a stand against the fashion machine and emancipate yourself by learning how to sew. Frau Fiber, artist, activist and former textile worker invites you to join in the sewing rebellion! Learn sewing tricks of the trade, so you won’t have to labor confused and frustrated at your sewing machines any longer. Create your own fashion statement beyond the boundaries of designer labels. Revolt against the globalization of the fashion industry by producing garments unique to your taste and body shape.

Bi-monthly meetings, Sundays 1-5 pm – Beginning Nov. 19. Just in time to build a winter coat or that fabulous New Years ensemble you have always wanted to make.
Supplies: old clothes, fabrics, portable sewing kit (needles, pins, thread, scissors), Patterns, paper, and pencil for drafting your own patterns.
