Bubbles and magic in the air at local laundromat

By Elisa Juliano

The World’s Largest Laundromat had a few tricks up its sleeve, presenting customers with a magic show and free pizza this Wednesday.

James Sanden, a local Chicago magician, entertained the children of customers with card tricks, disappearing acts and balloon animals for about two hours. Customers also snacked on free cheese and sausage pizza delivered fresh every 20 minutes.

In the past the laundromat has hosted other magicians such as Mary Macaroni.

According to his website, Sanden has performed in Japan and Costa Rica, in both Japanese and Spanish.

The laundromat does pizza night every Wednesday and free coffee and donuts daily. Sanden is set to perform again at the laundromat on Feb. 16 at 4:00 p.m. and March 12 at 5:00 p.m . For more information visit www.worldslargestlaundry.com.

Knitting for a Good Cause

By Jackie Glosniak

While knitting  may just be a relaxing past time for some, one group of Berwyn women has turned their hobby into a wholehearted effort for charitable causes.

On the first and second Sat. of each month, the Knitting and Crochet Guild of Berwyn meets at the Berwyn Public Library, creating outerwear, blankets, and more for many local charities.

Josephine Tucci founded the Guild 9 years ago, fueled by both her passion for knitting and her yearning to help other out.

“We make blankets for Project Linus, and hats, mittens, and slippers for PADS shelters,” Tucci explained. “We have also made scarves for the Special Olympics in the past.”

The Guild also frequently hosts fundraiser sales to raise money to buy yarn for their charity work.

“Out next event is on Saturday, Dec. 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Second Floor Elevator Lobby here at the library,” Tucci said.

At the sale, tables will be set up featuring all of the Guild’s most recent creations, and donations are also greatly accepted.
