Event description: 

In celebration of International Women’s Day and Yale’s 50WomenatYale150 initiative, the Office of International Students & Scholars (OISS) is thrilled to be partnering with Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services (IRIS) for a craft sale where all proceeds will directly benefit IRIS clients.
All of the vendors will be IRIS clients and include refugees and immigrants that have recently resettled in the New Haven area from Afghanistan, Congo, Syria, and more! These international designs and projects are handcrafted in the U.S. by women in the IRIS Women’s Sewing, Knitting, and Jewelry-making Groups.
Come hungry and leave full! Food for purchase will feature family recipes from around the world. This International Women’s Day Craft Sale with IRIS is a great opportunity to support our local refugee & immigrant community, and chat with them about their lives in New Haven.
This event will be CASH ONLY (no checks or credit cards). An ATM is just around the corner from OISS at Good Nature Market if needed. Please bring your own bag or buy a handcrafted bag at the sale for all of your great finds.
Please note: No registration required, but it’s helpful for our organizations to know who is interested in attending. Open to the New Haven community.
