SEW Darn Crazy: The Easy to Wear Art Clothing by Marty-O

Marty Ornish, California
Thursday, September 12, 1:30 PM

You are invited to a convivial and entertaining hour of upcycled fashions handmade by Marty-O, who hails from San Diego, California. This  three time Best of Show Wearable Artist has brought her fun, funky, feminine and quirky upcycled jackets to walk the runway at this year’s Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza. Get inspired to take your tired, worn, dated jackets and clothing and reinvent yourself to reflect who you really are! Marty-O encourages quilters and stitchers to embrace the notion of recycling, repurposing, and reusing what we have rather than consuming fast-fashion. She embraces quality over quantity in her closets, and loves to wear her art, as well as creating traditional and contemporary quilts. Join Marty-O’s Fashion Show for an inspirational break during the Quilt Extravaganza to reenergize your fashion forward self.
