Let's Up-Cycle


A new week means a new idea at The Backroom, where the innovative process never seems to stop.  Last week, my buyer and I had the pleasure of coming up with the idea of sewing classes at The Backroom.  Not that it is an original idea, because we know that many vintage stores do offer these services, however we decided to put our spin on it and offer “Up-Cycling Classes.”  Our goal is to teach our TBR lovers how to up-cycle their own garments and be a little more friendly when it comes to their closets.

For those of you that are not familiar with the term up-cycle, it is simply a fancy word used to describe how one would recycle their clothing by altering their garment; whether that means turning a long trench coat into a short trench coat, adding embellishments like rhinestones to your favorite blazer, or adding a colorful fabric to a basic garment to give it some spice or edge.

Offering a sewing class is one thing, but showing our clients how to stay on trend while cutting costs is another, so we hope you sign-up and learn how to up-cycle with us!
