Erin Scholl was honored to coordinate this year's Bay Area Swap-O-Rama-Rama for all of you to enjoy! Erin is a natural seamstress and craftster, a wannabe green architect and a passionate reuser of things. Creative reuse came out of obviousness for Erin in a post-college, ruined economy where the only fashion she could afford was "poor chic," as in, "homemade from free stuff." Then, considering how textiles are such a significant percentage of landfill waste, pesticides used in the cultivation of cotton... and other horror stories about her favorite hobby, Erin got involved with Swap-O-Rama-Rama to have fun with creative reuse while promoting the dual goals of reducing fabric waste and slowing the production of new fabric.
