It’s spring cleaning, Assemble-style! Support our youth programs while participating in a reimagined clothing swap. This is an event for folks of all ages, bodies, and genders!

How it works:

Bring an assortment of clothes, shoes, and accessories to Assemble (4824 Penn Ave.) on Saturday, April 7th, between 5-8PM. Find some new-to-you clothes and alter/decorate/rework them to make them your own! We will have making stations set up around the space for visitors to remix their finds. We’ll have sewing supplies, beads + buttons, and bedazzlers.

Take a photo booth picture in your reworked fashion, and leave with a rad new look.
