We’re soft-launching a sister site over First Hill way — and there’s some fun news about an interesting new business on Madison to help get the site started. From FirstHillSeattle.com:
1026 Madison, the former home of departed European boutique Mallow, is now home to Jigsaw Renaissance.
“Basically, we’re a place for people to learn or create anything,” co-owner Lion Kimbro tells FHS. We have a drill press, band saw, wood, myriad tools, a sewing machine, a fridge, and many many more things. We’re like an unschool for adults.”
Kimbro says Saturdays between 12 and 6 PM is a good time for stopping by. “It’s our ‘open house’ time,” Kimbro said. This Saturday, Jigsaw is planning to host lessons from a bonsai expert, by the way, so bring your scissors.
If you’d like to help with the site — hey, we pay! — drop a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
