Upcycling Initiative

ReWear is a new community initiative where unwanted clothing is given a new life through artistic expression. Motivated by reducing clothing waste, lightly worn donated clothing will be revamped via various decorative techniques.

Through this service-learning project, community members will discover more about garment decoration, screen printing, embroidery, vinyl applique, etc.


CORE TENET of our programming is to only used reclaimed supplies and used equipment.

We are looking for donations:
- iron, ironing board
industrial sewing machine  

- rip stop patching material
- fabric, leather, upholstery scraps
- heat transfer vinyl scraps
- embroidery & darning supplies
- eyelets, brads, rivets and tools
- zippers, buttons & snaps

want to get involved?
email Reina.  


Community Workshop days are offered multiple times throughout the year. Participants are welcome to bring their own items of clothing to work on, or they are encouraged to decorate one of the donated pieces of clothing for sale to raise funds for our service-projects.


Project Shop Artists collaborate by looking at orginal design ideas and decoration methods that raise the appeal of the lightly used items.

The Project Shop is committed to suppling workspace, specialty tools, and sharing techniques to help community participants bring their ReWear ideas to life.
