Passing the Baton
I am very happy to say that Swap-O-Rama-Rama in Vancouver lives on. After organising four fabulous occasions of community clothes swapping and creativity, I have passed the event on to Andrea and Rob Tucker and the Vancouver Craft Mafia. I am sure that they will bring even more energy and vitality to this great event, which, as you should know by now, was begun by the luminescent and divine Wendy Tremayne.
11:00am to 4:00pm
Location: Heritage Hall – 3102 Main Street, Vancouver
Admission: $6.00 plus one bag of clean clothing or craft supplies
As well, I won't be involved in the Swap-O-Rama-Rama at Maker Faire in San Mateo this year. The talented Scatha Allison, aka Miss Velvet Cream is taking on the reins.
I loved doing SORR, but geography and energy have their limits. I am a changed person through the grace of the amazing entity that is Swap-O-Rama-Rama, and thank everyone who volunteered, modelled, silkscreened, sorted, lent sewing machines, wrote press releases, took photographs, brought food, MC'd, and otherwise shared their skills, time and energy. Long live Swap-O-Rama-Rama!
