What's on the menu in 2013

SewfunWe’re off to a Great Start!
Thank you to everyone who came out to our first 2013 Open House and especially to the many volunteers who helped make it a great success: Jean Davis, Natacha Frazier, Jody Grage, Ken Cousins, Bridget Smith, Courtney Rosenstein, Julia Field, Julia Park, Jennifer Mundee, Orna Locker, Jenny Heins, Jessica Lee. Thanks to Jeff Gentes who stopped by to film a segment for The Seattle Channel’s CityStream Series (we’ll let you know when it airs!)

What a wonderful way to inaugurate our new “home” at Soma Yoga Studio, meet new neighbors, and introduce the projects and activities we will be offering this year. We had a great turnout, press coverage, pastries courtesy of Great Harvest, coffee kindly donated by Equal Exchange, and fun was had by all.

Below are the projects and activities proudly presented at the Open House for the coming year.
