Clothing items made by newcomers will be on display and a sewing instructor will be on site providing demonstrations and answering questions. Cultural music will be featured and if you are lucky you might catch some traditional dancing as well. Weather permitting the event will be outside at YWCA Wesley in the parking lot on the West side of the building. If the event is outdoors, social distancing will be encouraged but masks will not be mandated & bread + coffee/tea will be served to all attendees. Tables + chairs will be available to sit and enjoy your bread & coffee or tea. The event will be held in the Lower Hall of YWCA Wesley if weather does not allow us to host it outdoors. In the case of an indoor event attendees will come in through the Settlement entrance (West side parking lot) and leave from the North exit to maintain one-way flow of "traffic" at the event. If the event is indoors hand sanitizing stations will be provided, masks will be mandated, and Coffee/tea + bread will be given to attendees "to go".

Organized by

YWCA Prince Albert - Settlement Services

YWCA Prince Albert is a charitable organization providing programs, shelter, services and support that address the needs of women and other individuals, families and communities to encourage human dignity and equality. The Settlement Services Department of YWCA Prince Albert works with newcomers that have had to flee their home countries due to violence, political unrest, or other life-threatening situations. The trauma experienced in these situations is some of the most challenging, as refugees are leaving what they know for an unfamiliar country where they frequently do not speak the language. Settlement Services helps Government Assisted Refugees by welcoming them, teaching them about their new community, helping them find housing, making English language classes accessible, assisting with government documents, and providing employment support.
