Learn how you can Wear Your Values! This interactive day of No New Clothes will help you reset your relationship with fast fashion. Swap, Upcycle and Mend your way into a new wardrobe.

Bring your preloved clothes in good condition that you want to swap, get upcycling ideas, or mend and repair. Sewing professionals will be on hand to guide you and sewing machines, and basic sewing supplies will be provided. Previous sewing experience is recommended but not necessary. Ages 12 and up Space is limited so sign up early.

Please bring up to 5 pieces of clothing you want to swap, mend, or upcycle with. Items must be in GOOD condition, washed, and ironed. Stained clothes and items with holes are ok for upcycling and mending only. No underwear or stinky stuff, please. Spring/Summer wear is highly encouraged! All leftover fashion items will be donated to local agencies helping our unhoused and marginalized neighbors in need or sent to Deals or Designers to support Remake.

Tickets are $20.00 and will be invested back into Remake’s educational and ambassador programs and to Ciclo SF to continue their sewing education programs.

Light snacks will be provided.

Public transportation is recommended, take the N Judah or Muni 44,66.

Ciclo SF is uniquely focused on recycling and sustainable used materials during our workshops and classes. Students learn how to up-cycle/repurpose pre-owned clothes and make them into new, personalized, or custom-made items that they can proudly wear, sell, or gift. In this way, we can promote many ways we can contribute to making the fashion and clothing industry more sustainable.
