Clothing Repurposing Workshop

EVENT DATE: Saturday, August 24, 1:00-5:00 p.m.
VENUE: Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center, 13325 Beach Ave, Marina del Rey, CA, 90292

Upcycle your used clothing and remnant fabric at Transition Mar Vista/Venice’s semi-regular clothes repurposing event. Co-hosted with Transition Culver City, it’s a no-experience-necessary opportunity to revive an old favorite shirt by adding a ruffle or pattern of beads or buttons, or transform a skirt into a sweet sundress for a little girl. You won't believe what can be made from a tired pair of jeans!

Bring a sack of clean, old clothes to donate, then mix and match with other finds and let your creativity flow. Experienced sewers will be on hand to help with designing, cutting, pinning, and machine-sewing.

Bonus demonstration: reclaimed fabric baskets! Recycle old clothing, sheets, or pillow cases into a fabulous fabric basket. Bring cotton, cotton blends, scissors, and plenty of cotton blend clothesline and some binder clips for this project. If you want to prepare in advance, cut fabric into 1 x 18" (or longer) strips, on the bias.

Children welcome with supervision. Free, but donations are also welcome.

Watch a cool video about the event compiled by Stephon Litwinczuk.
