The Greenwich Exchange for Women’s Work, founded in 1901, is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run craft and gift shop, supporting independent craftspeople from Fairfield County and beyond. We help others to help themselves.

Purchases from our shop give artisans locally, throughout the US and in developing countries, the opportunity to earn income that pays for food, education, healthcare and housing by bringing their unique handmade products and stories to customers, bringing financial independence, piece of mind and self-esteem to those creative individuals.

YWCA Greenwich Domestic Abuse Services include crisis intervention, 24/7 hotline, individual and group counseling for adults and children, criminal and civil court advocacy, and emergency shelter. YWCA Greenwich is the only state designated provider of domestic abuse services in Greenwich with staff who are licensed to provide a variety of victim services.

The Exchange is located at 28 Sherwood Place in downtown Greenwich. Contributed photo

The October 14th event will feature artisan demonstrations, gourmet tastings, door prizes, raffle, complementary refreshments.
