Afternoon Session tomorrow! // RUNWAY SUBMISSIONS DUE // introducing Rubbish Renewed Accessory Wall!

Rubbish Renewed Eco Fashion Show is happening December 8th, and we still want your submissions! You have a couple days to scheme up a look - pieces do NOT have to be finished by the 10th, just fully visualized and transmitted to written form on the submission forms. Please check website for more info. If you have already filled out your submission paperwork, please drop it off at utilituSEW or at REALMS over on O.B. Riley Rd.

Join us tomorrow, November 9th from 1:30-4:30p for our weekly Afternoon Session to meet other designers/participants and get new ideas for your pieces. We will be working on runway pieces with sewing machines, scissors, glue, etc. This event is free! 

In addition to the Afternoon Sessions on Wednesdays, we will be hosting the "Rubbish Renewed Accessory Wall" this Friday, November 11th from 5-8, as well as November 18th, from 5-8. We will be playing with 'trash' to make wearable jewelry and accessories to potentially pair with the final outfits for the runway shows. Feel free to bring appropriate items to add to the pile of goodies to be reused! Ideas: bottle caps, soda can tabs, tin cans, cereal boxes, six pack holders, glass jar lids, plastic containers/lids... anything else you think would make a rad accessory! This is a free event.
