Hey'o!

My momma and I recently returned from a trip to Austin, TX with not only 20 extra pounds of carry-on luggage, but also with DREAMS! We went to the Maker's Faire, a Cloud 9 for makers, thinkers, players, and hackers. There we participated in our very first Swap-O-Rama-Rama: "a clothing swap and series of do-it-yourself workshops in which a community explores creative reuse through the recycling of used clothing". After a hard day of "ooo-ing" and "awww-ing", it was official: WE WERE HOOKED.

TO THE POINT:

We would like to set up a Swap in Bloomington. We are now looking for others that are interested. There are many ways to get involved: if you know how to sew and would like to help others learn how - we want you! Also, silk screeners, designers,  and anyone else with the DIY spirit, please contact us! My email (laughing permitted): bear.o.death@gmail.com. Or leave a comment. Or use.. mind communication. Smoke signals? Sure! Messenger pigeons? Acceptable!
