Children’s Clothing Swap

9-4 on the Municipal Ballroom stage

     Bring unneeded or outgrown children’s clothing, and take what you need. There will be no need to check in or check out. We will have people on site to assist, but they will not monitor the amount of clothing anyone takes.
     Clothing may be dropped off early on Friday between 3:00 and 5:00 pm. It can also be dropped off during the event, the earlier the better.
     Everything must be clean and in good condition. Please know the sizes of the clothing and be prepared to help sort as you drop off.
     The Childrens Clothing Swap is sponsored by Adrian Hinman and Red River Unitarian Universalist Church.
     Unclaimed clothing will be donated or reserved for future clothing swap events.

Plant Swap

9-4 on Festival Grounds
     Bring what you want, take what you want. Plan to meet other gardeners and plant lovers while also enjoying the Texoma Earth Day Festival.
     The Plant Swap is a coordinated event of the Texoma Earth Day Festival and will take place on the festival grounds at Lucy Kidd-Key Park (Sherman Municipal Grounds). The swap is sponsored by Dafne Stengel, The Mustard Seed, and the Texoma Earth Day Festival.
     We have very simple guidelines:
1. Bring your own plants & containers
2. Everyone must have at least one plant or seed packet to trade
3. All items must be labeled with the plant name and care instructions
4. Swapping plants must be pest-free and healthy

Trashion Fashion VII

 

Open to all area artists, designers, college art students and high school art students in their junior and senior year.

       The Grayson College Visual Arts Department will be hosting “Trashion V”, a runway style trash fashion show, in conjunction with the 2022 Texoma Earth Day Festival in Sherman, Texas on Saturday, April 23.

       According to wiseGEEK.com “Trashion is a word which is used to refer to objects and garments produced from discarded, unwanted, and leftover items. Trashion encompasses everything from home décor to garments, and public interest in trashion started exploding in the late 1990s, when being environmentally ethical while staying chic started to come into style. Trashion is considered to be a form of upcycling which refers to repurposing things for new uses, rather than simply getting rid of unwanted objects.

       This word is a fusion of the words “trash” and “fashion,” and it is meant to imply that things made from recycled objects don’t need to be lacking in style. While anyone can browse a vintage or thrift store, someone interested in trashion might also delve into free boxes, piles of discards destined for the dump, and other more unconventional sources for potential artistic inspiration.

       Trashion jewelry often uses discarded and waste metals, both from within the jewelry industry and outside of it, and artists may use things like bottle caps, discarded containers, and so forth to make their jewelry more visually interesting and to remind consumers of the jewelry’s origins. Trashion clothing often involves custom sewing, integrating several sources of discarded textile materials in designs which can vary widely, from sleek and hip to more casual and laid-back.”

       Work should include no less than eighty percent (80%) recyclable trash, found objects, and discarded fabric material.
