New Class and some SPACE news!

No, not news from space... that truly would be very, very exciting, but what we're talking about is pretty close! Thanks to our friends and the press we've got some great news about places for Seattle Free School classes.

Thanks to our good friend Anna we're in contact with an agency in the High Point area in West Seattle about using their space and partnering with them for classes. Look for more about this with upcoming classes... this gives us the possibility to do kitchen classes so look for more in depth classes on cheese making, soap making and cooking soon! We'll also have space now for yoga, tai chi, aerobics, you name it!

Secondly after our article in the North Seattle Journal we were contacted by a nonprofit in the downtown area and asked to use their space on Saturdays! How great that people are coming to us to ask us to use their space! Incredible! Anyway, the place is perfect for art classes, woodworking classes or any smaller discussion groups and should help us a ton with having classes that need a good work space.

Third, the kind folks at Allegro Coffee in the U District are letting us have our first knitting class there, upstairs in their wonderful space. We've been using this place for our meetings already and they have been nothing but great! So a big fat kudos to them too for being an excellent example of a true Seattle coffee shop!

And yes, as I just hinted... we have our first Knitting class! YAY! (too many yays? there's reason for a lot really...). There are a limited number of spots in the class so sign up soon... here's the info:

Beginning Knitting- This class will focus on making a hat or a scarf, the choice is yours.
Materials List- Please bring the following with you to class:
Materials for the hat will include size 15 16" long circular knitting needles, 4-5 size 15 double ended knitting
needle (sold as a set), one skein of bulky yarn- at least 60 yards. For the scarf you'll need one skein of yarn-
at least 90-100 yards, and corresponding straight knitting needles (most yarn labels have a suggested needle
size.) Pick plain yarn- no baubbles or fur- this will make it difficult to see your stitches.
Facilitator - Andrea Strong
Schedule- Saturday, May 10th at 1:30pm at Allegro Coffee House in the University District- UPSTAIRS!
Sign Up- This class has a limited number of spaces. Sign up here.
