3-10pm, Sat. Jan. 12, 2012; Located @ Maren's House in Squirrel Hill, contact/RSVP with Maren for address; Hosted by Maren Cooke

From Maren's email: Well, we've survived the end of the world, the solstice and various other holidays rolled right along, and now we're in 2013! It must be time for another Sustainability Salon. In case anyone didn't get the word in my email of December 10th, the Salon originally announced for this Saturday was pushed back to next Saturday the 12th. Note again that this one and the next won't focus on a single topic, but we will have some film screenings including Gas Rush Stories (by local filmmaker Kirsi Jansa, who will be here for Q&A) and the award-winning YERT film (likewise with Mark Dixon on hand). Which film(s) will be on which date has yet to be finalized; I'll send out another email late next week with that info. But in both cases, we'll be here with the usual stimulating conversation, delectable potluck food and drink, and music-making through the evening. Time is, as usual, 3-10 p.m.; RSVPs are, as usual, strongly requested (for yesses and maybes, ideally by email with "salon" in the Subject line).

Happy new year to one and all,

    I'm interested in coming, but I probably wouldn't be able to make it until after 5pm. Would that be ok?

      You're on the list now. Would love to connect! You may already be aware that there's a move afoot for a Transition Squirrel Hill initiative; we should remain closely allied.

    Getting this posted late. So it goes. Yes, this is concurrent with the Sewing classes, unfortunately--that was the best date for that.

      I've also had in mind hosting handwork-circles here from time to time (as we did back in Ithaca, called something like handworkkreisen, as they were organized by someone from Germany). And some folks bring knitting and such to work on during sustainability salons... so it's kind of a hybrid event already! Sorry for the conflict, this time around; I hope both events are well-attended and full of winter warmth! (well, with this January Thaw, they will be anyway)
