BRING Recycling News

BRING Recycling is the Eugene-Springfield area recycling center, recently voted Best Environmental Organization by readers of the Eugene Weekly. In the paper’s November, 2012, “Best of Eugene” issue, BRING’s retail store is compared to, “The. Best. Garage. Sale. Ever.”
BRING has a wonderful on-line presence . One of the articles in this month’s newsletter (also on-line ), explores the issue of rethinking what we wear, the search for sustainable style, how much we spend on clothing, the resources locally for finding used clothing, and a small section on local designers and manufacturers. I feel privileged and grateful to be named in the article. Since starting my upscaling efforts in November of 2011, I have slowly learned, and am still learning, how to use a serger, how to create in three dimensions, how to use a dress form, and how to be a better seamstress. I have created about fifteen coats, dresses, skirts and hoodies, and feel I am just getting started. I credit Katwise on Etsy for inspiring me to start sewing again after a long absence and for the first pattern for the sweatercoats.

My intention is to team with other local clothing designers to offer more delicious clothing choices on this website.
