Spring is right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning. It’s also the perfect time to start tidying your house. Tidying first means you won’t get stuck cleaning things that do not spark joy. Tidying also means it will be easier to clean when your house is already in order. Find out how KonMari Tidying can be part of your spring-cleaning marathon.
This interactive workshop will provide you with the tools and knowledge to successfully transform your home using the KonMari Method. The event includes an overview of the KonMari Method™ including a live demonstration of the KonMari folding technique and the distribution of take-home materials for reference that will prepare you to get your home tidy now!
This method of tidying can change your life!
The Pacific Northwest’s first certified KonMari Tidying Consultant, Sue Bollinger, of Tidy Up With Sue, will share home organization tips that focus on what to keep (Does it “spark joy?”) rather than what to discard. Learn about the revolutionary Japanese decluttering method made popular by Marie Kondo’s bestsellers, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, Spark Joy, and the Netflix series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A period. All are welcome!
Space is limited, so please RSVP today at (206) 937-2800.

At the Southwest Branch library,Town of Alki: Great Hopes & Fountainhead of Tears, a history of the former town of Alki, will be presented by local historian, Phillip Hoffman, who resides in West Seattle’s Alki neighborhood. The Town of Alki no longer exists. In its place rests remnants of summer beach cottages, 1950’s and 60’s styled houses and, increasingly, a collection of waterfront multi-million dollar homes, condominiums, and penthouses. Mr. Hoffman will relate the story of how the Town of Alki came about and why it failed –largely because the founders did not recognize the natural and physical limitations of their location.
This free event by “Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories,” a historically-based speaker series of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society is co-hosted by the Seattle Public Library and will take place Thursday, February 13th at 6 PM at the Southwest Branch of the Seattle Public Library, 9010 35th Ave. SW in West Seattle.
Mr. Hoffman holds a Masters of Urban Planning degree and is the retired director of the University of Washington Office of Institutional Studies. Upon his retirement, he established the Alki History Project. The Project’s mission is to document, explore, and interpret the history of Seattle’s founding neighborhood.
‘Words, Writers & SouthWest Stories’ presentations are scheduled for the second Thursday of each month at 6 PM at the Southwest Branch of the Seattle Public Library. Next month on March 12th, Susanna Ryan will present her new, entertaining book, Seattle Walk Report.
