YOU are in good company:

Rags to Riches

textile upcycling summit is designed to recognize and support leaders in creative textile reuse and consumption awareness (that's you).  The idea is that we come together to share our expertise, experience and stories, to inspire, empower, and connect - while supporting our efforts financially.  

We are entrepreneurs, manufacturers, suppliers, authors and activists offering alternative options to excessive textile consumption.  We are represent collaboration and possibility where others see roadblocks - conveying hope for a healthy future.

Affiliates are paid 40% of tickets sold through their link.  That is $113.60 per ticket.  20 tickets sold means you get a $2272 payment post summit.

The MOST common question asked about entrepreneurial textile upcycling is how to charge enough for product that is made from waste.  Rags To Riches is an opportunity to charge your fans and followers for your knowledge - 

Following our suggested marketing schedule will help you convey your value by instilling your authority and social proof.  REMINDER: You are actually a creative genius who chooses not to struggle financially.  

Our audience cannot wait to hear from us.  They want our stories, skills and experience.  Let's be sure we are well paid for our work.  REMINDER: see above.


Hi, I'm Crispina. I'm in the business of helping recycled textile artists become successful entrepreneurs.

I'm a recycled textile activist, industry professional, and entrepreneur who has dedicated my life to using sustainable materials and recycling textiles. I've been doing this work for more than 30 years...long before anyone even uttered the words, "up-cycling" or "eco."

My ultimate goal with Rags To Riches Textile Upcycling Summit is to reduce global textile waste and show others how to do it too. 

I've run a 40 person production company for 22 years, written a teaching book about my process, (The Sweater Chop Shop) and worked with some of the biggest names in textiles: Patagonia, Eileen Fisher, and Timberland, to help divert textile waste from the landfill.
