Somewhere from Recycled to Couture

RAGTIME is a group of women who are inspired by the wealth of clothing, accessories, and other useful goods available for re-creation. We meet regularly to encourage, teach, and share our creativity. And we love hand stitching.

Our projects promote the fun of thrifting, and the repurposing of abundant ‘stuff’ found in our closets.  RAGTIME views under-appreciated clothing as a resource to transform — from discards into funky, elegant, artistic, and/or useful garments.
