      "There is no beauty in the finest cloth if it makes hunger and
      unhappiness."
      Gandhi

      Join in the communal process of reuse and celebrate our collective
      creativity! You’re invited to Swap-O-Rama-Rama, a giant clothing swap and
      series of do-it-yourself workshops in which a community explores reuse
      and creativity through the recycling of used clothing. Reduce textile
      landfill, learn to be a creator instead of a consumer and participate in
      community.

      At this swap expect thousands of pounds of free clothing, sewing stations
      operated by local designers who are there to teach you how to modify your
      used clothing, on-site silkscreening, many creative DIY workshops and a
      recycled fashion show.

      And of course the core of the swap is the gigantic piles of free clothing
      sorted into categories: pants, shirts, skirts, sweaters etc. These piles
      are the collective total of each guest's contribution of one bag of
      unwanted clothes. Take home as much clothing as you can carry. Remainders
      go to a local women's shelter.

      About Maker Faire:

      Organized by the staff of MAKE and CRAFT magazines, Maker Faire is a
      newfangled fair that brings together science, art, craft, and engineering
      in a fun, energized, and exciting public forum. The aim is to inspire
      people of all ages to roll up their sleeves and become Makers. This
      family-friendly event showcases the amazing work of all kinds of
      makers--anyone who is
      embracing DIY and wants to share their accomplishments with an
      appreciative audience. Last year, we had 20,000 people at Maker Faire.
