Hi Crafters! Here’s a note from Wendy Tremayne, founder of Swap-O-Rama-Rama about the upcoming Swap-O-Rama-Rama at Maker Faire Bay Area May 21-22.
Dear CRAFT Readers,
It is wonderful to be writing to you in anticipation of the 2011 Swap-O-Rama-Rama (SORR) at Maker Faire. This is your invitation to join Swap-O-Rama-Rama as staff. Your also invited to meet and greet with us this weekend.
Over the years Swap-O-Rama-Rama has watched it’s staff’s advance into creative careers and form creative community around textile reuse. All the while they shared by teaching what they love at Swap-O-Rama-Rama and thereby helped to create a ground in which tens of thousands of people have found inspiration to reuse and create. Through this dynamic community of makers hundreds of thousands of pounds of textile waste have been recycled. People have changed.
Today we open the opportunity to join our staff to our returning staff and also to CRAFT readers – this is an early invite into a wonderful chance to participate!
