This evening Silver Spring Sewing Sisters took a field trip to Goodwill Retail Store in Rockville, MD. This was Meetup #3 in a series of 4 Meetups to help maintain the momentum for “Refashioning and Restyling”.
This week we were focused on finding at least one item that we could use for our next refashioning class at the end of the month. In our next “Restyling/Refashioning” class we will learn how to properly deconstruct a garment. This process takes time and patience. While shopping at Goodwill this evening each student found one item they will bring in for refashioning. In addition many of them picked up some additional items to enhance their wardrobe.
For some like Hadiyah and Heather who were old hats at thrift store shopping this was an easy shopping experience but for others it took a little while to get started. In the end each of us walked away with bags full of clothes that we could either wear outright or use for a refashioning project. We left behind one student, Theresa who couldn’t get enough of thrifting. can’t wait to see her great finds.
Around 8:30pm we decided to depart especially after we were told no more photos and the manager began getting suspicious. In fact he followed us outside when we took the group photo. That was odd. I guess an anxious excited group of thrifting women on a Thursday night is a little unheard of and they were all wondering what was the fuss about. Don’t they know??? Anyway all in all a good experience and we will be back soon. So Goodwill Rockville be ready for the return of Silver Spring Sewing Sisters!!! We are on a mission to find an restyle great clothes!
