RECYCLED DENIM DAY! 2010 Sewing & Stitchery Expo

Don't you just love denim! The more you wear denim the more comfy it becomes. Denim is almost like a security blankie except you wear it... accessorize it with embroidery, bling and rips... dress your denim up or down.

No one does denim better than The Denim Diva - Luveta Nickels. Check out her stash! ... and this is only a small corner of her denim stash. Luveta and I partnered up and designated Friday, February 26th, 2010 Recycled Denim Day. We challenged Sewing and Stitchery Expo participants to recycle their denim and wear their creations on Friday then pose with the SCHMETZ "Super" Needle. What fun! We saw a very creative range of projects - totes, beautiful suits, dresses, jackets, quilts and . . . . . a doggie diaper! Yes, we saw a very creative range of projects!

At the end of the day about 200 Recycled Denim Divas gathered for drawings and a group picture. If you missed my earlier posts, go to March 16 to April 21 to see all the denim ingenuity from the Puyallup show. Plus there are even more show pictures taken with the SCHMETZ "Super" Needle from other show days.

How do YOU recycle denim?
