The Sewing Rebellion furthers the emancipation from the global garment industry by learning how to alter, mend and make their own garments and accessories! Instigated by Frau Fiber, textile worker and activist. Frau Fiber and / or regional chapter organizers distribute their knowledge of the garment industry, pattern making and sewing, encouraging the reuse, renovation and recycling of existing garments and textiles in the creation of unique items tailored to individual tastes and body shapes.
Bring garments to swap, mend, alter and remake and sewing problems, which need solutions, materials to share and if you have it a sewing machine.
