Members Outing to Weverijmuseum in Geldrop

Members enjoyed the IWCE's April outing to the Weverijmuseum in Geldrop on  Thursday 18 April 2019.

This year's outing was to the Weverijmuseum in Geldrop. The museum is housed in an old textile factory. We learned a lot about weaving and the textile industry that was so important for this region in the beginning of the 20th century. Our guides were 2 former workers of the factory that told us many interesting stories and showed us the different looms still in use today. After the visit we enjoyed a Dutch lunch at the Hofdael cafe. The video below gives a nice impression of the outing.

Lots of interest in IWCE at Expat Fair & Festival on a very hot Sunday 10 June



This year's "i am not a tourist" Expat Fair & Festival Eindhoven was again a prime opportunity for the international community in the South of the Netherlands to get the low-down on life in the ‘low countries’. The historical VDMA area in Eindhoven’s city centre saw 50 specialist exhibitors and more than 1,500 international professionals who came together to exchange information, had an entertaining day, finding opportunities, orientation and business contacts..



For the second year the IWCE took part in this event and we were delighted to see so many women at our stand to have a chat about what we have to offer. Talking about the networking role of the club lead to much interest of prospective new members.



Thanks to all members for helping to 'man' the IWCE table!

Members Outing to Pre-historisch Dorp Eindhoven

Members enjoyed the IWCE's May outing to Eindhoven's Prehistorisch Dorp (Village) on Thursday 17 May 2018.

The Pre-historisch Dorp is a well-reviewed museum in the south of Eindhoven. It takes you back to a bygone age. Trip Advisor reviewers give the village 4.5 stars, calling it "fantastic", "highly recommended", and "simply fun to be in".

The club took a tour in English led by a professional guide, learning about the lives of the early settlers in Eversham and the middle age village of Eindhoven. Then we enjoyed a casual lunch in the medieval-style inn.

Celebrating: IWCE 50 Years Young!

14 April 2018 —The IWCE 50 Party started with a reception against the backdrop of DAF cars and trucks on display in the Museum dedicated to the work of the Van Doorne brothers. After a word of welcome by IWCE president Sharda (left), Ms Mary-Ann Schreurs MSc, Vice-Mayor of Innovation and Design, Sustainability and Culture of the City of Eindhoven, officially opened the party.

In a truly festive atmosphere, guests enjoyed a delicious dinner and danced the night away with the Eindhoven band Acustic Image.

Congratulations to a wonderful club of women and CHEERS to our friendships and support to each other!
