Take part in a free clothing swap, plus sewing and embellishment activities. Participants will come away with a refreshed wardrobe and smart lessons about how to reduce, reuse, recycle, and compost.

Rules and How To:
- Teens and Tweens 11–18 are welcome to participate
- Swap items can be dropped off at The Mix starting at 10 a.m.
- Each participant can bring up to 10 items for clothing, shoes or accessories and can swap for the same number of items brought
- Swap items should be clean and ready for swapping
- Sewing and embellishments maker space will be set up for self-service repair or refurbish of your “new” items, with assistance from SF State University and SF School of the Arts students.
