Sewing Rebellion Maneuvers

2018/01/01

Sewing Rebellion Maneuvers: basic training for future Faux Frau’s @ Haystack the Mountain School of Crafts

The time is now! Take up your sewing machines and hand sewing needles honoring the labor behind the label. Under the direction of Frau Fiber participants will undertake a series of basic sewing, mending and fashion hacking maneuvers with the intention of training and initiating participants to become Faux Frau’s*.  Learn to mend with contrasting colors, drawing attention to extend the life of the garments you wear.  Modify your clothing, turn your jeans into shorts when the knee holes get too big; turn your t-shirts into shopping bags; and an old table cloth into a skirt.  Keep a lookout for unwanted cloth and make yourself an apron, poncho or frisbee.  Be proud, share and wear your mended and self-made clothing with pride!

*http://fauxfrautraining.wordpress.com   At the completion of this course you have the option of swearing into the order of the Faux Frau’s, and consider how to instigate a Sewing Rebellion in your own community.
