Sewing Rebellion

The Sewing Rebellion – An economic tactic for change in the apparel industry. 

The Sewing Rebellion is a free workshop, which began @ Mess Hall, in Chicago Fall of 2006.  It was hosted at Mess Hall for one year, before becoming itinerant in May 2007.  The Sewing Rebellion is currently headquartered at the Institute 4 Labor Generosity Workers and Uniforms (ILGWU), 322 Elm Ave, Long Beach, CA.  Hosted by Frau Fiber and her army of Faux Frau’s the Sewing Rebellion hosts monthly workshops at the ILGWU, The LGBGQ Center in Long Beach, Long Beach Main Library, Boulder Public Library, and pop up actions take place around the country as requested.

Participants of the Sewing Rebellion are invited to emancipate themselves from the global garment industry by learning how to alter, mend and make their own garments and accessories!  Hosted by Frau Fiber and an army of Faux Frau’s the Sewing Rebellion distributes knowledge of the garment industry, pattern making and sewing, encouraging the reuse, renovation and recycling of existing garments and textiles in the creation of unique items tailored to individual tastes and body shapes.
