Clothing swap

Let’s help each other’s pockets and the environment!!!

We will be swapping children and maternity clothes with each other.
We have no complicated rules.

1. You bring clothes you or your kid don’t use anymore, in good condition for another round.
2. We all look at each other clothes and pick what we like. We don’t count pieces or anything: if you’ll use it, you can take it.
3. At the end you can either take your remaining clothes back home or you can leave them to be sent to charity.*

We discourage selling clothes because the idea is just to help each other in our community, like if we were living back home and passing on clothes between cousins, right? But if you really want to sell then please do so for a small amount 🙂

So start cleaning closets and drawers, it’s on!!!!

*Clothes nobody wants to take home will be brought to one of the second hand shops in Delft.

Farewell Lucie!

Delft MaMa Founder Lucie Herraiz Cunningham is off on a new adventure, and this is our chance to honor her before she goes. Please join us to say THANKS and FAREWELL!

Twelve years ago she founded Delft MaMa to help international mamas get support, education and community. Her passion and enthusiasm for women supporting women is foundational to Delft MaMa today!

Have you been touched by the Delft MaMa community? Then here’s your chance to meet Lucie one last time and to honor her community leadership.

Dutch Learning and Playing Together Group

Families in Delft, we would like to invite you to our new Dutch Learning And Playing Together group.

It can be hard to move to a new country, all the while taking care of a child and trying to learn how to live in a new culture. Therefore, this group aims to make it easier for mothers and their children learn a new language.

We believe that the support of a professional Dutch teacher, Dutch volunteers and fostering a community of moms and kids learning together will positively contribute to our learning. It is important to “Learn and Play Together!”

Age Group: 1-6 years.
Cost: 7.5 Euros for every week, each parent (Prices can be changed due to learning type activities as workshops etc.)
Place for maximum 15 children

Please join us and learn about the facilities of learning a new language with love.

Delftmama Mexican Cooking Evening

Hosted by Sandra Ivonne Barbosa

Let’s enjoy a Mexican dinner together. We’ll be preparing a quick but delicious starter: guacamole! Then we’ll be making home-made real Mexican tacos from scratch! In Mexico we prefer corn than wheat and we DON’T use taco shells, so we’ll prepare corn tortillas from scratch and we will also prepare the filling with minced meat: our typical “picadillo” filling. And for the ones who like spicy, we will also prepare a true Mexican salsa with “chile de árbol” (red chili peppers from Mexico).

IMPORTANT

– Fees are 10 euro per person.

– There are only 5 spots available, and the registration will be processed on a first come first serve basis.
