That's the working title of the big family clothes swap we're planning for back to school time. It'll be modeled after the Swap-a-rama-rama that was so incredible at the Maker Faire last fall. We'll have piles of sorted clothing and dressing rooms and manned sewing machines lining the perimeter of the room. Clothes can be doctored, altered, revised or heck, even fused. Ms. Teresa Ponzhoa has offered up the gym at Zilker for our use and it's going to be fantastic. It'll be on that ridiculous tax-free shopping day when they somehow convinced all of society that they can save money by shopping. Huh? It's mission will be to help people realize that they don't need to go buy a bunch of new clothes when there are already a ton of really great clothes out there just searching for the right body to wear them. And that consumption of new stuff doesn't make you feel good. It's making your own style that makes you feel good.
Stay tuned. And remember, you heard it here first. Or maybe not. Maybe you heard from me because I've been telling EVERYONE. Even though it was really Kathie's brainstorm.
