Astek’s Katie Hawkey Organizing Swap-O-Rama-Rama Chicago Fundraiser


Just wanted to share with our blog readers a project that is near and dear to my heart – each year I organize Swap-O-Rama-Rama Chicago, a clothing swap and series of do-it-yourself workshops in which a community explores creative reuse through recycling. I do this as a fundraiser for my mother’s school Three Sister’s Folk Art School in Chillicothe, IL. If you enjoy clothes and/or crafting, I encourage you to come out for the event!


Swap-O-Rama-Rama Chicago

Saturday, February 12, 2011 @ 9am-5pm

Chicago Waldorf School

1300 W Loyola Ave, Chicago

Just off Loyola Red Line | Free Parking

Suggested Donation:  $20 + a bag of clothes ($10 Students and Seniors)

Help save the environment and get a new spring wardrobe! Bring in those forgotten clothes, swap them for something new and then get creative! You get access to everything from sewing machines to silk screens, and all the supplies and coaching you’ll need to make new outfits, bags, jewelry and more. If you’re fashion-independent, green-minded, or DIY-centric, this is for you!

Also, if you’re wondering just how pregnant I’m looking these days, check out my interview promoting the event on NBC 5 Morning Show:
