Awesome fabrics, a sewing lounge, a knitting room, handmade goods… it’s everything you need to sew and embroider: classes, Pinterest parties, even membership options ranging from occasional dabblers to obsessive sewers that provide access to all the great machines and tools you need. Say goodbye to Joanne Fabrics – Dabble & Stitch is the future, and one of Simply Living’s newest business members. Come meet the owners, Katie and Dan Heck, and hear their story. We’ll meet and greet in the Studio space, and as always there will be an update on Simply Living activities and events. Bring a friend. Men welcome! Email <firstname.lastname@example.org> or call 614-407-4987. Bring a friend!
Simply Living Receives Grant from Puffin Foundation West Ltd.
We are proud to be the recipient of a 2013 grant from Puffin Foundation West. The award will help us expand our documentary film series and focus on solutions that address environmental and social justice issues. Java Kitrick, Puffin Foundation West Director, applauds Simply Living "for reaching out and partnering with other local groups which will strengthen the resolve and lift the voices of all advocates working on these most pressing issues of our times."
How do we know what we don’t know? For starters, we turn to extraordinary journalists—journalists who sometimes risk their lives—to tell us the truth behind the headlines. Jeremy Scahill is such a journalist. And come July 10th you have two opportunities to hear him speak in Columbus about Dirty Wars, his new book, and to watch the award-winning documentary by the same name. Truth-telling in today’s world of unprecedented government secrecy and surveillance is a dangerous thing!Scahill will speak at the Wednesday Luncheon Forum at the Columbus Metropolitan Club (http://www.columbusmetroclub.
