Victoria Theatre Association – Ongoing at the Schuster:
In partnership with the Victoria Theatre Association: the Dayton Sewing Collaborative receives  discarded vinyl show banners which we upcycle into useful and quirky goods and accessories like messenger bags, wallets and knitter’s totes. The goods are for sale at certain shows at the Schuster Center when the sewing collab is available to person the table!
After a short training you’ll tell potential customers the story of the bags and help process sales. Perks include getting to sit in on the second half of most of the shows listed below.
