Swap-O-Rama-Rama :: March 21

Swap-o-rama-ramaTrade in your tired attire at Tulsa’s first ever Swap-O-Rama-Rama on March 21. The event is hosted by the Tulsa Craft Mafia at The Collective, and will be an afternoon-long giant clothing swap and series of DIY workshops on how to remake unwanted clothing into new ensembles.

How it Works

When you attend the swap bring at least one bag of your unwanted clothing or a small donation. Every swap begins with a giant collective pile of clothing, the unwanted clothing of all who attend. Everyone is welcome to dive in and find their next new/used items from the pile. Take as little or as much clothing from this pile as you like, it’s all free.

Transform Your Clothes with DIY Workshops
After you have chosen your new clothes slide on over to one of the sewing stations and attend a workshop. Learn to make modifications or totally transform your finds. Each swap features a variety of workshops by local artists who are there to share their sewing and modification secrets with you. All the materials you need to sew, embroider, bead, fix, repair, knit etc, are supplied.
At 8 p.m., the designs that came off the sewing machines during the day will make their debut during a participant-modeled fashion show. Local music acts Tops of Trees and Low Litas will rock out the rest of the evening, when food, coffee and beer will be available for purchase from the folks at The Collective.
When: March 21, 1-6 p.m.
Location: The Collective, 3148 E. 11th St. (across from TU stadium)
Cost: A bag of clothes for donation or $5
