Weekend Round Up!


Weekend Round Up!

Plied Knowledge: The week that was…

At the shop:

Around the web:

And totally, completely, unapologetically local:

  • Masks. Lots of local crafters have been making them and giving them to friends and loved ones now that the CDC recommends that we all use them. Have a surplus? Love to sew? We heard from one of our dear customers who is a nurse that Providence is giving the donated handmade ones out to patients to take home to keep and use. This will help them keep patients safe and conserve the medical ones for hospital staff. Oregon is doing really well flattening the curve! Keep it up!
    • Drop offs are to be made by appointment only so there is someone there to take them.
      • West Side Contact: Marisa - 503.729.5805
      • East Side Contact: Chaitu - 509.944.1527
      • Murray Business Center, Door G, recieving area on southwest corner of the building. 3601 SW Murray Blvd., Beaverton
      • Providence Office Park, Security Desk. Building 2 Lobby, 4400 NE Halsey Street, Portland, Or 97213
  • Do you love the graphic novel, Roller Girl by local author Victoria Jamieson? Now you can take a drawing lesson with her via YouTube!
  • You can also get bread baking tips from local bread star Ken Forkish via OPB's Weekend Edition interview...
  • And the heartwarming news about Powell's Books continues! Not only did a plea for online sales help them put many employees back to work, but a call out on social media about what you would do if quarantined at the main store lifted the spirits of all! Hurray for humanity!

Have a great weekend and remember, you can always find us online!
