Some of you may have noticed that the lovely little  has now appeared to the right. What is it? It’s Pinterest! Have no idea what Pinterest is?

Well, let me give it to you in a nutshell…

For our purposes, it’s our Instructor & Student Think Tank with topics relating to our Certificate Programs and noncredit classes.

It’s an online scrapbook that students and instructors can use to clip and contain ideas / images, so they are put together as a giant ‘think tank’.

The SMARTER* Clothing Project: BYOF Workshop

By , November 13, 2011 12:00 pm

SMARTER clothing project

(Bring Your Old Fabric or
Old Favorites)

Perhaps you are a person who collects ill-fitting garments that you never get around to altering or you have a closet full of “I’m sure I will wear it agains”. Maybe you are a designer looking to join the “green” brigade but not quite sure how. Or possibly you just want to know exactly what sustainable is and how you go about starting the journey.

Come join us for the SMARTER workshop where fun meets facts. This workshop will show you just what to do with that sweater you don’t want to get rid of but will never wear, or show you what you can make from that scrap of fabric that you just can’t bear to throw out all the while learning what makes sustainable design sustainable.

On Sunday, December 11, 2011
from 12 – 3pm
learn how to fashionably reduce waste with the SMARTER* Clothing Project team; Bridgett Artise, Iliana Quander and Trudy Miller. Bring your choice of Old Fabric or Old Favorites for the first of many BYO Workshops —  come with something old and leave with something new!

Materials needed: Old fabric or Old Favorites (sweaters, hand me downs, vintage finds, can’t throw outs, etc)

Location: FIT’s Seminar Room 9 (SR9)
