DIY Valentine’s Day Cards from Assemble
With the help of Emily Grosse, co-owner of crafting studio Assemble on Phinney Ridge (7406 Greenwood Ave. N., assembleshop.com), we present simple tips on creating great-looking, affordable, easy, non-cheesy cards. The best part? The kids do most of the work. If you’d rather start under Grosse’s watchful eye—and add fancy details like stitching—Assemble is offering valentine card workshops on Feb. 5 and 12 (2–3 p.m.). You’ll create a few card samples during the class and then take supplies home to finish the rest. $20 per child. Or, watch this Seattlemag.com exclusive video of Grosse making her V-day cards.

Cinderella at PNB
2/4-2/13 (Friday - Sunday) - PNB: Cinderella
2/4–2/13 After a nine-year hiatus, Pacific Northwest Ballet is bringing back this beloved story based on the original fairy tale by Charles Perrault. Choreographed by founding artistic director Kent Stowell in 1993, this version rejects the tragicomic elements of other interpretations and instead focuses on the romantic essence of the narrative. With close attention to the original score (by Sergei Prokofiev) and spectacular sets, this tender throwback is breathtaking. Times and prices vary. McCaw Hall, 321 Mercer St.; 206.441.2424; pnb.org
