WHAT IS CLOSET RUNWAY?
Closet Runway brings you an exciting real runway experience with cutting-edge, unique fashions and trends from boutiques, designers, and retail stores. We will present style makeovers and provide fashion and styling tips to help you put together your own signature runway style. You will see how to mix some of your classic wardrobe staples, vintage pieces, and past season favorites with the current season’s new styles to get more options out of your wardrobe. Discover your inner fashion trailblazer, be entertained by featured guest artists, shop with emerging businesses and network.
Whether you are a fashionista, trendsetter, fashion newbie or just want to have a good time, you’ll enjoy the Closet Runway experience.
See you there…where ready-to-wear fashion and the runway meet!
Closet Runway is a fashion event with a cause. We donate part of our proceeds to charities benefiting our community and those in need.

JUMP START YOUR SEWING MACHINES!!! Burda Sewing Club of Silver Spring
Hi Ladies!! Let’s jump start our Sewing Machines. only $8 for the class
It’s spring and we could all use some new clothes in our wardrobes.
A few of you missed the first class and others have mentioned that you are interested in learning the basics of sewing and want to get back into the “se-wing” of things. Well this is the perfect class for you!
Our 2nd sewing class will be March 27th at the Wheaton Public Library from 2:00pm-4:00pm. The introductory fee for each class is $8. This fee will cover the cost of the room and some supplies and handouts which will be provided to you for the class. There will be a sign posted in the hallway as you come in the door. Feel free to bring a friend just be sure to RSVP for both of you.
Those who attended our first class last week are welcomed to come back. You will work on a separate project to enhance your sewing skills.
One last and final frugal thing to do this weekend and you can do it from home. Visit Shop Goodwill.com
I recently checked out the site and found some fabulous designer suits and dresses. Since I’m in the process of weaning myself from thrift and Goodwill over the next three months I will refrain from visiting the site this weekend
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND FOLKS!!!
