Started in New York by artist Wendy Tremayne in 2005, Swap-O-Rama-Rama (SORR) was designed as an alternative to consumerism. Wendy saw the power of small-scale clothing swaps among friends and decided to extend it to the community level. Taking place all across the world, textile artist Heather Cameron and the Work Less Party collaborated in 2006-08 to bring the event to Vancouver. In 2009, the event was passed over to Got Craft and a craft supply swap was added to the mix.
