Women Owned Businesses are the focus

I have the pleasure of knowing wonderful women that own their own businesses that I will be featuring over the next few weeks via the GayZette.  I have added a "Women Owned Business" tab and will be adding and linking resources on this new page.  Galleries, home maintenance classes, dog training, dog companion services and lesbians in film are just some of what I will share. We have so many amazing resources in our community and telling you about them is part of the joy of this gig. 

If you know of someone that you would like to see on the pages of Seattle Announcements or if you have a business and would like to share it, please contact me.  Ms T.


Home Maintenance Classes taught by Amy Ecklund owner of AmyWorks

Would you like to learn how to do home maintenance, plumbing, electrical or bathroom remodeling in a relaxed learning environment taught by a woman?  If so, check out the following classes that are being offered by Amy Ecklund owner of AmyWorks at South Seattle Community College.  Another series of classes will be available starting in February although the courses may vary from the ones being taught this session.

If you are like me you may have projects at home that you want help with or don't want to do them yourself.  You can contact AmyWorks to do them for you, teach you how to do them or you can pitch in and help with the project.  I know I prefer to have women in our community do the work when possible.  Ms T.
