Re:new Project hosts Open House, benefits refugee women

Glen Ellyn, IL

Re:new Project will host its fall open house on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at its studio and store location, 250 Pennsylvania Ave., Glen Ellyn.

Re:new is a project started by Wheaton resident Rebecca Sandberg to help employ local refugee women.

The project started about two years ago and there’s been two annual open houses. This fall, the group opened a shop that has regular hours  from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Refugee women sew and knit all products sold at the retail shop. They sell one-of-a-kind bags, clothing, placemats, pillows and several other products.

All proceeds support the project and financially support the women creating the items.
