Learn to Make Handmade Fabric Cards
Monday, June 24, 10 a.m. to noon
Friday, June 28, 2 to 4 p.m.
 A new member, Judy Sauer, who is a quilter and fabric artist, is teaching a class in June on how to make one-of-a-kind handmade fabric cards. No experience is required. You will create three beautiful cards that are as individual as you are. The cost of the class includes the card stock, material glue, fabric and interfacing. Just sign up and join in. You will only be limited by your imagination. Great for birthdays, thank you, get well, Christmas -- you name it.
Judy has a wealth of experience and is regularly commissioned for her work. She has left samples at the Center for you to see the creativity and uniqueness of this art form. Space is limited to 10 people per class, so call the Center to reserve your spot. For more information, contact Judy at (206) 713-8531.
 

The What and Why of Qigong
If you want fitness without the pounding of traditional exercise, then qigong Level 1 Healing is meant for you. It’s easy and good for you. It's suitable for the seriously ill, elderly, and the physically hindered. Qigong can be done sitting or standing. All you need is loose fitting clothes.
Qigong is the art, science, and philosophy of restoring health and fitness to all organs, structures, and functions of the body through relaxed breathing, meditation, and slow rhythmical bodily movements. It also assists doctors in healing bodily problems that baffle them.
Qigong teaches you how to relax and remove stress from the body as you move slowly and gracefully from posture to posture. Qigong exercise relaxes the whole body fully, enabling the micro circulation to flow throughout the body, which causes you to become healthier in areas of your body that you thought were impossible.
Qigong will move you out of a lazy unhealthy, inactive lifestyle into a healthy, productive active lifestyle, opening up activities and new goals that you thought were impossible. Its benefits include improved function of the internal organs, muscular and joint health, improved vascular function, stress relief, improved sleep and enhanced fitness. Try it, you will love it.
Learn and practice qigong every Monday at the Center at 3:15 p.m. For information, call Dr. Brian Flake 838-2616.
