Rags To Riches Virtual Textile Upcycling Summit held on April 20-22 was simply FANTASTIC. A decade of dreams, thirty years of industry connections rekindled and months of outreach surrounded and supported by my engaged, intelligent, fun-loving, team made it all work. I feel so much Gratitude!
Before the event was over we were already talking about Rags To Riches 2023.
Last month was our first ever virtual summit - a gathering of 20 Industry professionals (see our line-up above) who taught how to grow a textile upcycling business you love that supports the planet and your ideal lifestyle.
We shone bright light on entrepreneurs, manufacturers, suppliers, authors and activists who have developed alternatives to our cultural habit of excessive textile consumption.
Attendees developed tangible next steps for upleveling their upcycling enterprises while myth-busting limitations, surrounded by awesome people.
We had yoga and mindset/reset breaks to stretch our minds and bodies in new ways. There were small-group breakout rooms to connect, discuss, and share. Virtual presenter booths allowed live Q&A, product purchases, and studio tours with each day’s speakers. Our private Rags To Riches networking group is where ticket holders could gather, connect, share and reflect on the all the richness shared.
