A program from A Verb For Keeping Warm.
Clothing provides a way to keep ourselves warm, to communicate values, and to express beauty.
Take the pledge! To make (at least) 25% of your own clothing.
Whether you are already making 25% of your own clothing and would like to take your process to the next level – or – you are new to making and would like the support of the group towards making 25% of your own clothing, all are welcome.
You can also take the pledge on the behalf of someone else, like a child, or someone else you’d like to make clothing for.
Every process used in the creation of textiles are welcome: knitting, sewing, weaving, felting, crocheting, etc. As long as you are using the techniques towards making garments, you are welcome to join us.
