Colorado Sewing Rebellion

Participants in the Colorado 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! Sewing Rebellion was founded by Frau Fiber (Carole Francis Lung) in 2006 and is hosted in Colorado by Faux Frau, Steven Frost, 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.

Colorado Sewing Rebellion is a partnership with the Boulder Public Library’s maker space BLDG 61. BLDG 61 generously provides materials and equipment for our monthly mending and production workshops.

The Sewing Rebellion began at 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 has been held at Fancy Tiger, Denver CO; Recycle for the Arts, New Orleans, LA; The Smockshop, Los Angeles, CA, and the John Michael Kohler Art Center, Sheboygan WI. Ongoing SewingRebellions are currently being held in Long Beach, CA, Asheville, NC, and Seattle, WA.

RSVP for our next event via the Boulder Public Library or on our Facebook page.
