What we're about

Swap-O-Rama-Rama (SORR) IS BACK! Once again Swap-o-Rama-Rama claims it's place as one of the largest Makers at Maker Faire in San Mateo the 3rd weekend in May. This monthly SWAP-n-SEW enables us to recruit new volunteers, expand our membership base, and enables it's current members to keep the heart of Swap-o-Rama-Rama going by helping the community explore creative disposal alternatives for used clothing. Our members show how rethinking the reuse, re-purposing and repairing of everyday textiles can, with a little creativity and ingenuity, have a meaningful impact to the waste stream. We encourage beginners to experts, young and old alike to come, and join us as we make a better future through resourcefulness. Membership is not mandatory but has it's perks! Bring a CLEAN bag of clothing to participate for a $1 or just a creative urge and $5 w/o a bag clothes, and a snack to share while we make the world better @ a PLACE for Sustainable Living near the Oakland/Emeryville boarder!

Gandhi said, "There is no beauty in the finest cloth if it makes hunger and unhappiness."

SORR is a volunteer operated & community supported non-profit that happens because of your involvement.
