the women of re:new thank you! December 01 2010, 0 Comments

The Fall Sale was a wonderful success!  The day was overcast and rainy, but inside the lobby of our building spirits were bright!   A heartfelt thank you goes out to all of you who came and bought and were interested in learning more about Re:new!   I am writing too many sentences with exclamation marks, but we all truly appreciate your support and encouragement!

Thanksgiving comes quickly this year, it seems.   After a Saturday of watching Re:new's products march out the door one by one, and after hearing the refugee women say they enjoyed being at the sale, we feel SO thankful.  It is a privilege to work alongside these women.   It is a joy to see their work admired.   When the larger community outside our little studio makes a choice to see our space and  meet the women and buy their products...well, it's then that our vision is being realized!

Re:new's vision is to create a community in which women can flourish in an environment of creativity, dignity and peace.  This community is not only our small group of women inside our space, but the larger community surrounding us.   The larger community showed up this weekend in a big way.  Thank you!
