Join us in visiting Las Rancheritas in Agustín González for a delightful afternoon enjoying a savory traditional Mexican comida and viewing colorful, picturesque original hooked rugs. Agustín González is located just 20 minutes from SMA, yet a world away in the campo, with views of the mountains, the presa and SMA in the distance.
The comida will be held at the Las Rancheritas' craft store located just outside the village. Tables will be outside under tarps so that diners can enjoy the scenery as they partake of a fabulous traditional meal of puerco con chili, chili rellenos, papas con queso, nopalitos salad, carne guisada, homemade fire cooked tortillas, three different salsas and more. Everything is made under strict sanitary conditions yet in the traditional way.

In addition to the delectable food, you will have an opportunity to view and purchase the charming hooked rugs of Las Ranchertas, the stone sculptures of their husbands, and be able to meet and speak with the talented artisans themselves.

Please join us for an afternoon in the campo, with its tiny pueblos and farming villages, where the true heart of Mexico beats and where the roots of the people go deep into the earth and their blood goes back for centuries beyond memory.

Condición Sana
Homobono & Nuñez, 2nd floor, Col. Centro

DANCEmotion is free dance, no previous experience is required. There is no choreography, nor instructions to follow during the session. Only the music and your personal emotions will lead you into your own dance.  This session is all about freedom and positive energy and also a great way to exercise while having fun!

Every peso of your donation (50 pesos) will be given to Mujeres en Cambio to help fund scholarships for young impoverished rural women around San Miguel. That means we'll be happily dancing and generous at the same time!

DANCEmotion is a great way to begin the weekend. You will not only get lots of exercise, but you will begin the weekend with a smile on your face!

Please join us in this happy celebration of life as we dance to beautiful music from around the world.



This very festive comida was held at the lovely Atotonilco hacienda of one of the founders of Mujeres en Cambio and featured the flavors of Mexico, the fashions of Isabella Blue and the soothing sounds of Peter Fleming and JK O’Donnell. We were joined by some of our scholarship recipients from Atotonilco.

November 2017, LA CREME DE LA FEMME

This wonderful, very well-attended event, was a tribute to all the fine women chefs of San Miguel.  The food was delicious and varied, the music was wonderful, the countryside was peaceful, and it was a beautiful afternoon for a party.


The 2017 General Membership Meeting of Mujeres en Cambio, open to all MeC members and supporters, was held at St. Paul’s Church.  Reports were heard from the chairs of our various committees---Finance, Scholarship, Events, Rug Hook Project, Fundraising, Special Projects---and the Officers of the Board were elected.

October 2017, 4th ANNUAL FASHION SHOW

This very upbeat event, held at the Instituto Allende, featured fifteen models from the community elegantly modeling the new designs of Angela Nasta of Sindashi. Moving to the beat of the live music of "Media Luna,” this show was one of our most successful events to date. We were pleased to meet some of the artists, embroiderers and bead sewers from the rural areas employed by Angela who make the create the beautiful outfits worn by the models and sold at Sindashi. It should be noted that Angela provides work to over 100 people in the campo.

September 2017, FEST FOR THE BREAST

The luncheon was an exquisite event--with wonderful food, a captivating speaker and great company, all in a perfect setting!  Many thanks to the lovely, elegant Hotel Hacienda Mexiquito for hosting our event and to our luncheon speaker, Janet Dawson, art historian and lecturer.

December 2016, MEN WHO COOK

Held at a lovely Tuscan-style villa just minutes from San Miguel, Men Who Cook was one of our most popular events of 2016.  We are very grateful to our excellent cooks who presented an array of delicious entrees, hors d'oeurves, and desserts.  Our guests strolled around the 2-acre property filled with ancient mesquite trees and lovely gardens while tasting the varied menu.  A good time was had by all!


This lovely benefit luncheon, at which we honored our special friend, Alicia Franyutti, was held at Hacienda de Las Flores. For the past 20 years, Alicia, the owner of Hacienda de Las Flores, has provided MeC with a home for our successful fundraising luncheons. Our guest chef for this special celebration was Michael Coon, consummate chef, cooking teacher, and culinary travel guide. The food was fabulous and the camaraderie fantastic. It was a sweet, nostalgic afternoon.


What an elegant way to spend an afternoon!  As our guests arrived at the very lovely Hotel Hacienda Mexiquito wearing their finest midday attire, they were handed a complimentary glass of champagne.  Following a presentation by Eva Eliscu---tea historian, author, lecturer and former importer of fine teas---detailing the fascinating intricacies of the history of tea and its important place in the many cultures of the world, our guests were treated to a lovely, elegant afternoon of fine teas, pastries and sandwiches. This was a very beautiful event.
