My dearest readers from the Seattle Steampunk community will be glad to read today’s post, which brings you tidings of wonderful things soon to come. Clear your calendars, my dear rats, as these events are not to be missed.
First, on the 17th of September, there will be a Steampunk rummage sale in Capitol Hill at All Pilgrims Christian Church. This is a great opportunity to connect with some of the local Steampunk artists and snag a few items before SteamCon rolls in next month. If you’re looking for that last piece to complete your latest ensemble for the convention, this is a great place to check out. You’re also likely to meet some people you’ll see at the con too, and everyone knows that cons are so much better when you know some of the people there.
Second, there is to be a bi-monthly Steamvent in Capitol Hill, and meetings will start this next Monday, the 19th (which also happens to be Talk Like a Pirate Day). It will be held at the wonderful Elliot Bay Books, a gloriously independent book store right in the heart of Capitol Hill. Make sure to check out the Facebook event I’ve linked to for more information. This is yet another great opportunity for you to get connected with the local scene, especially if you hail from a location which makes traveling up to the Northside of Seattle rather difficult. Plus, Capitol Hill is awesome, so you should totally come hang out with all the cool kids.
