Upcoming Events

April Monthly Meeting

It's time to clean out your wardrobe and get ready to swish! On Thursday, April 23rd, the IWF will be holding its second swish/swap clothing exchange following the success of last year's charity event. Members are invited to bring articles of clothing that they no longer wear and will have the opportunity to browse and try on items brought by other women. The event will take place in the Palazzina of Centro delle Donne, with social greetings and set-up beginning at 7:30pm. At 8pm, the IWF will welcome artist and fellow member, Maria Moscato, who will introduce her clothing line, Mia Luna, and speak briefly about the launch of the book, Made in Bologna, which she collaborated on. Immediately following the talk, browsing and swapping of clothing will begin.  All leftover articles will be donated to the Associazione Orlando charity.

May Monthly Meeting - Assemblea

Mark your calendar for the May Monthly Meeting, which is scheduled to take place on Thursday, May 21st. Details will be posted soon.
