Participants of the Sewing Rebellion are invited to emancipate themselves 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.

 

Participants are asked to bring garments to mend, alter and remake and sewing problems, which need solutions, materials to share and if you have it a sewing machine.

 

Instructions on hand: 

sew a button

make a mend

thread a needle

turn and roll hem

Penny Pinching Coin Purse

East German Shopping Bag

tablecloth circle skirt

 

Join the Sewing Rebellion, an economic tactic for change of the apparel industry. 

 

The Sewing Rebellion is a free workshop, which began @ Mess Hall, in Chicago Fall of 2006.  It was hosted at Mess Hall for one year, before becoming itinerant in May 2007.  The Sewing Rebellion has been held @ Fancy Tiger, Denver CO, Recycle for the Arts, New Orleans, LA, The Smockshop, LA CA and the John Michael Kohler Art Center, Sheboygan WI.
