I love recycling clothes. It is super fun & creative, and you get to do something good for the environment while transforming old clothes into something new & fresh for your wardrobe. This will be the first of many meetups on the topic. I have lots of exciting project ideas to share and for this first one, we are going to start with a simple project that is cute and easy for beginners - a beret made out of an old sweater. I'd also love to chat about environmental issues related to the fashion industry, brainstorm ideas for future recycling projects, pretend we are in Paris with our chic berets, and gossip about who is going to win Project Runway!

The first time I made a beret from a sweater it took me about an hour, but I'm scheduling plenty of time so we can be leisurely about it. 1pm-4pm should be gobs of time.
