January 2012 Memo to the People: A pause to reconsider our purpose.


The Sewing Rebellion has emancipated people from cheep disposable garments by teaching mending, sewing, remaking and pattern making for 6 years! This fall the Associated Press released a piece  (thank you Sean) about the Sewing Rebellion, and it has prompted a renewed interest in starting chapters.  We welcome Evanston IL Chapter, which is starting this Sunday. 

However, the Sewing Rebellion needs to reconsider the it’s current structure, and contemplate how to proceed in the revolutionary style which is at it’s core!   For the time being I will discontinue the instructions, and monthly emails, however please continue your individual commitment to STOP SHOPPING AND START SEWING!

Wishing you the best mending, altering and remaking in 2012!
