We share the word of WTB at area events, in order to recruit more women to join our group and to let the community at large now more about us.

In 2012, we’ll be at both Westcott Fair and Plowshares.   At both venues we will showcase the handcrafted items — knitting, sewing and ceramics — of refugee women.

Stop by the Westcott Street Cultural Fair on Syracuse’s east side, Sun., Sept. 23 from noon to 6:30 p.m.  It’s a fun day of meeting others and spreading the message of our terrific group. We’ve gained a lot of new members this way and added dozens to our mailing list.

On December 1-2,  come find us at the Plowshares Arts and Crafts Festival , sponsored by the Syracuse Peace Council.

Sometimes in the summer we staff a booth at  Interfaith Works’ annual Duck Race to end racism, held at the Inner Harbor. It’s fun to chat with other members and to meet new people as they stop by to chat.
