S.O.A.R. - A Boutique Show Featuring Handcrafted Items by Refugee Artisans

  • Re:new Project (Store+Studio) 483 North Main Street Glen Ellyn, IL, 60137 United States (map)

n a time when we are witnessing the worst humanitarian crisis unfolding across the globe, displacing hundreds of thousands of families in the process, we all desire to do something meaningful to support refugees forced to flee their homeland because of war, political conflict or persecution.

Save the Date for Saturday, May 6th, because S.O.A.R. offers a very tangible way to help resettled refugees begin a new life in the United States.

S.O.A.R. stands for Strenth, Optimism, Ambition, and Resilience. We believe that every refugee woman we equip and empower possesses each of these admirable qualities. As master artisans in their own right, each woman is also a proud mother, daughter, sister, grandmother, aunt, friend, provider and caretaker to her family. Her hands nurture life and fashion beautiful handmade items of superb quality. 

We believe that given the opportunity to work in a safe, encouraging, and creative environment, like Blue Meets Blue and Re:new Project:

Every stitch helps mend the pain of her past.

Every stitch becomes part of her journey of hope for a better future.

Every stitch represents economic stability and security for her family.

Join us for an afternoon of exclusive shoppingdelicious appetizers, and free giveaways, as we feature handcrafted items sewn by the beautiful and inspiring Artisans of Re:new Project and Blue Meets Blue.
