*Come Welcome the Spring Season with a Celebration of Renewal* Join us on Sunday, March 21st for a comfy house party here on Killion Street. If you haven't attended one of these parties before, here's the basic info:

Low priced handmade clothes & bags

Free food & drinks

Good music

Intelligent discussion

People of all ages

Board game play

FREE CLOTHES- donation bin to give or take from And here are the lengthy details:

I recycle clothes. People donate their unwanted or damaged clothes, fabrics, buttons, linens and thread to me, and I cut them up, sew them up, and turn them into something new. I do have an Etsy site but I prefer that people come look at and try on my stuff in person so I have these house parties. I provide homemade & healthy snacks, beer & wine, a wide range of old vinyl records to listen to, some board games to play, and a general comfortable atmosphere for people to hang out, browse through my stuff and have a good time. There is also a donation bin for people to contribute unwanted clothes or acquire free clothes from. I encourage people to bring others- the young and the old, the conservatives and the liberals, the co-workers and the co-pilots, your friends, your family, your neighbors. Everyone is welcome, especially those in need. If you've been to any of these parties before, you'll know that I have been having them once a month, but I am back to work at the office and life is ever-changing. This party will be the first of my now quarterly parties. No more one per month, I will now just be having these every 3 months, or, 4 times a year, or, seasonally. So if you think "oh, I’ll just come next time", you may want to re-think that because the next one probably won’t be till June. So come join us for the Spring Party, celebrate the Renewal of your wardrobe, and the Renewal of Life on Earth, and HAVE A GOOD TIME.

The party is in North Hollywood, CA.

Sunday, March 21st

12:00 noon through about 8 pm.

A side note:

>>Lately the donation bin has been overwhelming, so things that are still in good condition I am donating to the Los Angeles Mission, and they give to the local poor, homeless or addicted. I try to pass on the good wearable stuff and use up the stained, ripped, or shrunk stuff for my creations. Also, if anyone knows of a place I can donate clothes to that has no religious affiliation and will not re-sell them, I would really like to know about it.

You are encouraged to bring co-workers, friends, strangers, children, parents, bosses, and anyone is welcome (but we do have cats and they dont like dogs).

This event is free, and its a lot of fun.

11452 Killion Street, North Hollywood, CA 91601

- please bring any clothes, purses, fabrics, threads that you are disposing of and throw them in the FREE bin. This way anyone who attends might be able to pick something up without spending any money.

* But Mawed Said people are Giving more than they are Taking - so PLEASE come and look through the free bin / free swap items - and take anything you like ---you don't need to bring anything to swap.

Just come have fun , and take what you like...

    Mawed is a great host. I love her recycled fashions. This swap wasn't very big - there is a lot of swap stuff left over ( too much giving - not enough taking) -- but we had time to play some games and relax. Great food too. ( We should offer to help her with that more and do a pot-luck people).

    I think people might take these events for granted - because Mawed has been nice enough to open her house to us numerous times. BUT - the events are not going to be as frequent - and we should really take better advantage of them when they are happening.

    No one else has stepped up to host regular swap events - and she's opened her home to us.
    She does give us a nice long time span to stop by and swap – but I’m thinking that might dilute the attendance a bit at any one time. Next time we should get a core group together and decide on a set time to all show up and have a larger swap …. Especially those who live in the LA area and nearby – I realize it may be harder for those in O.C.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
