uwcrafting Meeting Today

Sorry for the late notice, but all crafty UW'ers are invited to join us in Suzzallo Cafe today at 1 pm for our first uwcrafting meeting of the quarter. Knitters, crocheters, and all other crafters are welcome.

We usually stick around for a few hours, so if you can't make it at 1, it's likely we'll still be there afterwards. Our regular meeting time for this quarter will be Fridays at 1 pm in Suzzallo Cafe.

Also be sure to join uwcrafting to stay up to date on any changes to meeting times and to join in on crafts-related conversation. We are a group of knitters and other crafters that formed in the uw community last quarter so we could get together with other like-minded folks.

Hope to see you there!

Laundromats

Are there are any laundromats near the residence hall Lander? I live on 12th AVE, about 2 blocks north of Lander. If so, what are the rates for one load to dry and wash?
