Swap-o-rama-rama & Maker Faire

Consider this you personal invitation to creative recycling! I wanted to let everyone know about this really fun event that happened in Austin; it was the Swap-o-rama-rama and Maker Faire! It's was a blast! Swap-O-Rama-Rama is a giant clothing swap and series of do-it-yourself workshops in which a community explores reuse and creativity through the recycling of used clothing. At Swap-O-Rama-Rama consumers are taught to be creators and this transformation takes place through the local talent in the community. Swap-o-rama-rama was part of Maker Faire, which had everything from art cars to hacked bicycles, robots, CNC machine hacks, and recycled crafts galore! It was a blast for anyone with a creative streak or a knack for reusing materials. Everything a DIY-er could want! The next Maker Faire in Austin will be October 18 and 19, 2008. I know I'll be there! About Swap-O-Rama-Rama: http://swaporamarama.org/ About Maker Faire: http://www.makerfaire.com/
