Soroptimist International

I won't find out until Wednesday just how my sales were at Yellow Springs, but this past Friday I was contacted via email by a member of a chapter of Soroptimist International.This member had seen my work at Yellow Springs and asked me to be a part of their 63rd annual art show.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I didn't know who the Soroptimists were until I received this email and I cannot believe that they've been around as long as they have. If you are also unfamiliar with this organization their mission statement reads:

"Soroptimist International is a worldwide organization for women in management and professions, working through service projects to advance human rights and the status of women. "

If you are interested in knowing more about them, here is their link: Soroptimist International

And if any of you reading this know about them or have had experience with them, please tell me more.

Thanks for all your comments. I most definitely plan to look for a local chapter and to become involved.

The nearest Soroptimist clubs to Lewes are in Havre de Grace MD and Seaford DE.

Congratulations! This is very exciting for you. Your work is so fresh, vibrant and colorful that I'm sure you'll bring something special to this show.

These are beautiful pieces, and I hope you had great success selling. I've never heard of them, but they sound like a 'can't go wrong' group!

Yeah, I should be clear. I've never heard of the Soroptimists!
