What we're about

This page regroups the two previous Upcycle pages Alameda and Fashionistas into one.

We upcycle sew, build, make new creations from tossed out items and thrift shop finds. We get together and have fun learning new skills, making new friends, rejoicing in creativity, inspiring green thinking and reducing our community landfills. So far we have focused on junk sculpture, apparel and home decor, but the sky's the limit!

Develop your signature style. Rethink how you clothe yourself and your family. Have creative, collaborative, skill-building fun. Resign yourself to starting with something simple and we will help you get going.

We have shared resources like books, scissors, thread, needles, lots of jeans and tee shirts, a couple of community sewing machines, not to mention a roomful of opinions and ideas to inspire you.
