SEWING REBELLION a history.

2008/11/29


The SEWING REBELLION began in the fall of 2006 @ Mess Hall, a community cultural center on the North Side of Chicago.  It began as a monthly free sewing workshop and clothing exchange.  In January 2007, it was decided that a rebellion couldn’t happen once a month.  Weekly meetings on Sunday afternoons were established until May of 2007, when Frau Fiber became itinerant.  The SEWING REBELLION as Mess Hall www.messhall.org, continues today.  


Frau Fiber’s intention is to bring the SEWING REBELLION to communities around the country, where she lay’s the ground work for an economy of STOP SHOPPING, START SEWING.

Welcome to the Sewing Rebellion

2008/11/22


The Sewing Rebellion is a FREE workshop!


I WANT YOU, to emancipate yourself from the global garment industry by learning the skills to alter, mend and make your own garments!

Facilitated by Frau Fiber, textile worker and activist, Frau Fiber distributes her knowledge of the garment industry, pattering making and sewing.  Encouraging the REUSE,RENOVATION and RECYCLING of existing garments and textiles in the creation of unique items tailored to YOUR taste and body shape.

BRING garments to mend and alter; sewing problems to solve, or an old piece of cloth to use in the production of an East German shopping bag.  Other knock off patterns on hand:  hunters hat and white-collar shirt.

Please post your questions or email Frau Fiber , fraufiber@gmail.com
