Event Details

You’ve heard of clothing swaps, but what about the yards of project-ready fabric piling up in the corner of your room? Let’s swap them out with newfound friends. With Remake Bay Area, you will gain inspiration for your next sewing project and learn about the importance of the #NoNewClothes movement!

Please bring good quality/non-damaged / odorless/ reusable fabric pieces that are min 1 yard – max 10 yards.

**If possible, please label your fabric with fiber content and yardage measurement with painters tape beforehand. We will have some labeling supplies at check-in as well.

We are ALSO accepting:


Sewing Patterns

Home linens (curtains, tablecloths, napkins)

Trimmings (zippers, buttons)


Scraps or sewing remnants

Used clothing


To keep the spaces and hands clean this is a no-food event.

Suggested ticketed donation of $10 – $20 sliding scale will be invested back into Remake’s educational and ambassador programs and the Fashion Accountability Report of sustainable brands.

All leftover items will be donated to SCRAP or the equivalent.

  • Public transportation is recommended. Parking garages are nearby.


Remake is a global advocacy organization fighting for fair pay and climate justice in the clothing industry. We are here to end poverty wages, unsafe conditions, and gender-based violence with which our clothes are made today. Our fast-growing community of activists, designers, IG addicts, feminists, storytellers, and all-around fashion aficionados are committed to advocating for the women who make our clothes and have taken the pledge to buy better, remaking our closets with fashion that respects women and our planet.
