The SEWING REBELLION began in the fall of 2006 @ Mess Hall, a community cultural center on the North Side of Chicago. It began as a monthly free sewing workshop and clothing exchange. In January 2007, it was decided that a rebellion couldn't happen once a month. Weekly meetings on Sunday afternoons were established until May of 2007, when Frau Fiber became itinerant. The SEWING REBELLION as Mess Hall www.messhall.org, continues today.
Frau Fiber's intention is to bring the SEWING REBELLION to communities around the country, where she lay's the ground work for an economy of STOP SHOPPING, START SEWING.
