sew be it spring swap

Back in the throes of winter Sew Be It Studio alerted us to an upcoming Summer/Spring clothing swap. I've received an update re: two swaps, distinguished by size (great innovation on their part, I say). Here are the deets:

It's that time again! Sew Be It Studio's second annual Summer/Spring Clothing Swap Parties. Let's welcome the heat by cleaning out that closet to make room for a new wardrobe. It’s shopping without the guilt and without the price tag, and most of all, it’s for a good cause.

Here's how it works: Bring in the clothes, accessories, shoes, and handbags that you no longer want (make sure they are clean and in good condition) then swap them with others at the party. Whatever you like, you can take it home with you. There are no limits or restrictions on the number of garments to take home. We will donate all the remaining items along with 50% of the proceeds to The Red Door Family Shelter. Come party, swap and enjoy refreshments and snacks.

The style gurus advise you to swap:
1. Anything that you have not worn in a year or more.
2. Anything that does not fit you. Too big? Too small? Why are you holding on to it? Love your body and dress it in clothes that fit properly.
3. Anything that you do not love. Swap the things you do not love for things that you do love. Your unloved items may be someone else's treasure.

Benefit: You get to meet new people, go home with new additions to your wardrobe for very little cost, increase your karma because it is for a very good cause and get fashion consultation from the other participants and our resident style experts.

We have two swap parties dedicated to celebrating the different sizes.
