SR is good for Long Beach week 2

2013/08/20

SR is good for Long Beach, because Frau helps me sew up clothes I get from Free Store and 710 Swap that need some fixing up.  Long Beach needs the Sewing Rebellion to help people.

“the knowledge and practice of sewing and craft is a useful skill that can benefit the people of Long Beach” Christopher

“this program allows me to learn to sew, make alterations, and create a beautiful hand-made project.  The Sewing Rebellion provides supplies, and knowledge that I wouldn’t be able to have.  People can benefit with this program because it is local, free and a great environment.  More people should learn to sew, but they don’t have the money for equipment or supplies.  This is wonderful!” Hope

In an on going soft guerrilla response to the 2005 termination of the multi-fiber agreement, Frau Fiber’s Generosity Quotas rose this week, during a three-hour production schedule.  Participants, were helped to mend, alter and make do; quilted pot holder, penny-pinching coin purse and skinny legged jeans.
