The Sterling Band. I have used this band and I got nothing but rave reviews.

James Clearwater if you need voiceover work done for your business. Especially character voices!

Carolyn Cruso is a versatile singer/songwriter, a dulcimer and flute player and a teacher.  Wonderful CD's

Katie PM is an amazing fabric artist and winner of the Silver Star (go to the site to see what that is but I'll tell ya- pretty big deal) Classes and beautiful pieces to look at on her site.

The National Anti-Vivisection Society is a charity I find very easy to choose to support.

Tim Hulley of Heartstrings Healing if you're looking for a lovely healing therapeutic experience, live harp for an event or a beautiful CD.  He also teaches harp.

The Ballard Chamber is a terrifically supportive group for local businesses!

These are some links to people and organizations that I
feel good about recommending.
