With your support we hope to raise $8,000!

 

You can donate now through Tuesday, May 7!

Ricrack is a place to learn how to sew, create, grow, imagine, re-use, sustain, and succeed. Our hub is our Creative Reuse Shop and Community Sewing Studio in the heart of Central City. We partner with schools, museums, and libraries throughout the city to bring sewing lessons and environmental awareness to the community. We champion the ethos of sustainability and skill sharing, encouraging the repurposing and upcycling of materials, reducing waste, and contributing to a healthier environment.


Knowledge is power! Collectively, we have a problem with over consumption and being comfortable with not thinking about what happens to a garment once we have decided we have no use for it anymore. Landfills are overflowing with textiles and clothing and the more we can take care of what we have, the better it is for all of us.

Ideally, we want to teach and empower folks to repair their clothing or make the garment they have always wanted. To embrace their own style and body type and resist fashion trends.


Once you have sewn your own pair of pants and you see a pair on the rack at a fast fashion store for $15, you realize that there was no way the person could have been paid fairly for the work that went into making them.
