The shop does look good, thanks! Sorry about your 'break down'. I had to think about that when I read it, pretty sure it was some kind of mechanical break down! Do you have a cart? The settlement camp has a full kitchen & dining hall. As I mentioned though, I don't know if the property is even in use. Last I knew the city owned it.

Hi, Regina!
It's funny I just broke down in front of your shop today and I said well that's a good opportunity to come in and tell you guys how awesome the place looks and the new windows really make it pop! I ended up talking to Kate that rents your space so thanks for answering back the settlement camp has a kitchen?

Hey JoAnne, Last I knew the kitchen was gutted, I don't know if they ever put in a new one. We used the kitchen at the old University Settlement Camp years ago. I don't know if there is anything going on over there anymore. Good luck!

Hi JoAnne, I'll be moving to Beacon in November and would love to be a part of reviving this. :)

Hello!!  I would love to revive this group, as I have a ton of thoughts/ideas for this.  Anyone out there?  Does anyone know anything about renting the kitchen in the old high school?  I would love to trade usage for teaching kids cooking/baking classes.

Can we manage to resuscitate this group?

Hi, Wondering if anyone has an old/antique dresser sitting in their basement, in need of some TLC? We'll gladly take it off your hands :) I'm looking for a cheap/free refurbish project, ala: Thanks!

Looking for scrap fabric and yarn, any craft/art supplies, window shutters, bins, and an area rug! All for an art studio for kids- if you have any of these items lying around, we'd really appreciate your donation!
Thank you :) Lena-

I'm in search of a long rope hammock - anyone have one they are not using anymore?
