1:00 pm: LightHouse Krafters Korner Hangout
Jul 11 –
Second Saturdays of each month
Did you know there's a national network of crafters who are blind or have low vision out there, meeting up all the time by email and phone, to share, learn, and teach crafts of all kinds? We’re excited to be partnering with the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) Krafters Division to connect you to all the new crafting skills you could possibly want with a community that is just as excited about it as you.
LightHouse’s Krafters Korner hangout is free and crafters of all skill levels are welcome. Get answers to your crafting questions and guidance in learning new skills such as loom knitting, needle knitting, crocheting, origami and more. If you wish to register for membership in the NFB Krafters Division, LightHouse will cover half of your annual membership dues. San Francisco residents would pay nothing, thanks to a generous grant from the San Francisco Department of Disability and Aging Services.
RSVP to Serena Olsen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 415-694-7316.
Want to find out more about the NFB Krafters Korner division before you join? Give it a try with these free perks:
With membership, you'll have access to unlimited Krafters Korner classes, access to the Krafters Korner Marketplace, and have a voice and a vote in the running of the division. You’ll also be able to learn, build, or even teach your skills.

6:00 pm: 30% & Growing, Virtual Edition
Jul 23 –
Please note the schedule change to the 4th Thursday for this month only.
We’re a few months into this new COVID-19 employment landscape and each one of us in the 30% & Growing crew brings a different experience to the table. We’ve shared everything from the challenge of recognizing instability in our livelihood that necessitated an out-of-state move, to successful second-round interviews and placement in seemingly impossible times.
How has the employment game changed for people who are blind or have low vision in these unusual and challenging times? We’re going to gather some insight from our very own in-house experts on this very subject in July—the LightHouse Employment Immersion team will be our very special guests, so if you’re a veteran 30%er, an in-transition 30%er, or an aspiring 30%er to be, please join us for this very special edition of 30% & Growing to get your finger on the pulse of what’s new in employment for people who are blind or have low vision.
For Zoom access info, RSVP to Adult Program Coordinator Serena Olsen at email@example.com or 415-694-7316, then grab a bite to eat and your favorite beverage, and join the virtual networking party.
