We have our next open house on Thursday, August 23, 5:30-7:30 PM.

You’ll be able to ask us questions about why we can — or cannot — do some of the things suggested already.

We’re working on updated design documents now and will post them here before the August 23 event.

This put us at the 60% design milestone. Our goal is to have all major design decisions resolved by this stage to keep the project on schedule and within budget.

Fly-tying with Brita Fordice at Emerald Water Anglers
Aug 23 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Brita Fordice was born, raised and learned to fish in Washington state. She taught herself to tie flies at age 10. Once she started, she never stopped.

These days she is an accomplished angler and guide on the beaches of the Hood Canal and Puget Sound, where her custom patterns really shine for cutthroat and salmon. Her flies have been featured in national magazines and she currently works for Sage Manufacturing in their research and development department.

She will be in the shop tying her remarkable baitfish patterns on the evening of Thursday, August 23.

Anyone interested in chasing fish that feed on other fish, either in fresh or salt water, or anyone interested in learning from masterful fly tying shouldn’t miss this event. Brita’s meticulous flatwings, squid, eel and shrimp patterns are uncanny representations of baitfish species.

EWA Fly Shop
August 23rd, 7 pm

Brita will start tying at 7:00 pm. She’ll work through a series of patterns and techniques and answer questions for an hour and a half. Tickets are $10 and available here. We’ll have some special materials ordered for the event and all fly tying materials will be 10% off for ticket holders.

‘Like’ screening at Seattle Lutheran High School
Oct 15 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

First showing in the area of the screening LIKE.

A one-hour documentary about the impact of social media on our lives.

Seattle Lutheran High School invites you to a free screening of LIKE. Technology is a tool. It’s here to stay and social platforms are a place to connect, share and care, but what’s really happening? Are we addicted? How do we stop? Where do we start? What do we need to know? By understanding the effects of technology and social media on the brain, on our lives and on our civilization, we can learn how to navigate it more safely together.

IndieFlix goal for this film is to inspire people of all ages, especially kids, to self-regulate. It’s not about blame. It’s about looking in the mirror and empowering ourselves to create balance in our lives and to learn to be there for each other. (Go here) to view the official trailer of the documentary.

Seattle Writes (for teens): Piloting the Category Five Hurricane: Getting Through Tough Times @ High Point Library
Oct 21 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

At the High Point Library:

Teens are invited to join poet Ann Teplick in a poetry-writing workshop that explores the themes of self-care and resilience.

In this poetry-writing workshop for teens, we will explore the themes of self-care and resilience. In a world where, in addition to our own personal challenges, we witness the struggles of those whom we love, and of those whom we haven’t had the good fortune to meet; in a world where overwhelm is often the wave that spins us to our outer limits—what brings us to solid ground?

In two workshops at the High Point and Delridge Branches, teens will read and be inspired to respond to the work of poets such as Li-Young Lee, Nikki Giovanni, Naomi Shihab Nye, Suheir Hammad, Rumi, Gretel Ehrlich, Ntozake Shange, David Wagoner, Francisco X. Alarcon, and more. The material for each workshop will be different. Please attend one or both! All participants are invited to read and celebrate their work on Sunday November 4th from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the Highpoint Branch of the Seattle Public Library. Do join us!

Ann Teplick is a Seattle poet, playwright, prose writer, and teaching artist. She writes with youth at Seattle Children’s Hospital, through Writers in the Schools; Child Study Treatment Center, through Pongo Teen Writing; and at Coyote Central. She’s received support from Artist Trust, Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, 4Culture, and The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Her writing has appeared in Raven Chronicles, Crab Creek Review, The Louisville Review, Drash, Spartan, Hunger Mountain, Jack Straw Writers’ Anthology, 4Culture’s Poetry on the Busses, and more. Her plays have been showcased in Washington, Oregon, and Nova Scotia. She is currently working on a young-adult novel in poems where resilience and self-care save the day in the face of tragedy.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. This workshop is intended for teens. Registration is not required for this writing class, but seating is limited. Seating will be on a first come, first seated basis. Doors to the meeting room will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the class.

The town has been cursed with Chronic Stupidity for 200 years and Leon’s job is to break the curse. No one tells him that if he stays over 24 hours and fails to break the curse, he too becomes Stupid. But, he has fallen in love with a girl so stupid that she has only recently learned how to sit down.

Learn about new 24-credit high-school requirement @ Chief Sealth International High School
Nov 13 @ 7:00 pm

We’d like to invite the West Seattle Community to our Nov. 13th, PTSA General Meeting for a presentation on the state requirement for 24 credits for graduation. Presentation by Heidi Bennett, Wa. State Region 6, Legislative Representative.

NEW 24 CREDIT GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS & DECIPHERING HIGH SCHOOL – A guide for middle and high school parents

With the change to WA State 24-credit graduation requirements approaching, I’ve developed a presentation geared toward middle and high school parents to explain:

v New WA State 24-credit graduation requirements

v State and Federal testing High School requirements

v Deciphering acronyms – PPR, HSBP, AP, IB, CHIS, CTE, STEM, etc. – do you know what these are?

v Why and how to earn post-secondary credit (college or work credentials) in high school

For Shoreline and Seattle, the 24-credit graduation requirement starts with the class of 2021 (rising 10th graders) and beyond, as both districts have a 2-year waiver. Neither district has finalized plans for offering more credits beyond their current 6-period day/24 credit earning opportunities! YIKES

Come and learn more about this new requirement

Synopsis:
Leon Tolchinsky is ecstatic. He’s landed a terrific teaching job in an idyllic Russian hamlet. When he arrives he finds people sweeping dust from the stoops back into their houses and people milking upside down to get more cream. The town has been cursed with Chronic Stupidity for 200 years and Leon’s job is to break the curse. No one tells him that if he stays over 24 hours and fails to break the curse, he too becomes Stupid. But, he has fallen in love with a girl so stupid that she has only recently learned how to sit down.

Our Lady of Guadalupe’s Ethical Trade Sale @ Walmesley Center
Nov 18 @ 9:30 am – 1:00 pm

Our Lady of Guadalupe’s annual Catholic Relief Services Ethical Trade Sale is coming up on Sunday, November 18 from 9:30 am-1:00 pm in the Walmesley Center (7000 35th Ave SW).

We live in an era of unprecedented economic interdependence. Ethical Trade seeks to change the ways in which conventional trade often leaves behind the most vulnerable people. By buying Ethical Trade, you support the efforts of skilled farmers and artisans working to break the cycle of poverty and to build stronger communities. Employers also assure that workers are treated with dignity and that forced labor is not part of the supply chain.

At the sale, you’ll find unique gift items, including chocolates, Advent calendars, nativities, crosses, holiday and home décor, scarves, ornaments, baskets, and much more. In addition to Ethical Trade items, you’ll find: holiday cards from Noel House (a Catholic Community Services shelter for homeless women), tasty treats sold by the Pre-K and 3rd grade classes to benefit WestSide Baby, Tanzanian rosaries and batiks items from Maryknoll, Catholic lip and beard balms benefiting youth ministry, Purpose Jewelry made by women who escaped Human Trafficking, and Olivewood Items from the Holy Land. While you browse, be sure to sample free Fair Trade coffee provided by Pura Vida.

Proceeds go to Catholic Relief Services and OLG’s efforts to bring Fair Trade coffee and tea to our events.

“We Wish You the Merriest! Holiday Hits of the ’50s and ’60s” both in West Seattle at Westside School
Theater, 10404 34th Ave. SW, and in Ballard at Ballard First Lutheran Church, 2006 NW 65th St. Tickets
are $22 for adults, $12 for youth (5-12), and free for children 4 and younger.

The program will include spectacular arrangements of seasonal favorites as they were sung by the stars of
the 50’s and 60’s, including Andy Williams, Eartha Kitt, Frank Sinatra and Johnny Mathis. The
70-person choir, now in its 8th season, is led by artistic director Deeji Killian, a former Seattle Opera
soloist with a theater and dance background. The Northwest Firelight Chorale, who performs all music
memorized, is known for its innovative staging, choreography and expressive performances that provide
an exhilarating experience for its audiences.

The choir has performed at the Northwest Folklife Festival, headlined twice at the Leavenworth Tree
Lighting Ceremony, and opened for famed Irish tenor Emmet Cahill on his last two U.S. tours. The group
also performs at least two outreach concerts per program at senior living facilities to bring music and
healing to those who cannot easily attend its regular concerts.

The choir has embarked on three European Concert tours, most recently this past summer when it
enthralled audiences in France, Belgium and Ireland. In addition to fulfilling its mission to share
soul-stirring music, the choir donated all proceeds from its performances to local charities within the
regions it visited.

To purchase tickets or see videos, visit the group’s website: www.nwfirelightchorale.org.

Northwest Firelight Chorale is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Dark and rainy days mean fly tying season is upon us. So join our guides, staff, and guest tyers as we grab our favorite brew and teach a variety of patterns for trout, steelhead, and the Puget Sound. Don’t miss out as these classes are a ton of fun and fill up fast!

We are making some exciting changes to the fly tying classes this year. As you will see, we have invited several guest tyers to teach this year, and each event is posted with the name of the fly, the instructor, and the difficulty so you will be able to pick and chose which evenings you would like to attend based on your interest and skill level. Please use the links (below) to sign up for each class. Space is limited; therefore, only those who have completed the online payment process will be included. – $20/BYOB

Thank you for all the support we have had for these tying classes. As a shop, we couldn’t be more excited about the growing community of fly tyers!
