Tacoma Washington Bread Club

I'm looking to start a bread club in Tacoma Washington, I don't know anyone who bakes bread around here, but I know from going to my library there are plenty of interested people out there.  Please feel free to contact me if there is any interest.

Hi Russel,


We wish you all the best with your new group!


We started a bread group in Chicago earlier this year, and it has been wonderful to find other bread bakers in our area. We had two successful events last month, and just put another two on the schedule for March.


When you have your website up and running, please send it to us--and we will link to it from our pages.

Hi Russel,

I just sent out a tweet about this discussion and your efforts to form a bread club in Tacoma, WA. I also put a link to this discussion on the frontpage of the Chicago Amateur Bread Bakers. I hope these links help bakers in/around Tacoma get in touch with you. Good luck with this new endeavor.

Happy baking!

If you want to have a page for your club hosted under the site for the Saint Paul Bread Club (http://spbc.info), let me know and I will work with you to get it to be what you want.

Otherwise I will just link to it once you know what it is.

There are some bread clubs on Facebook.

Hi Russel,

Are you still trying to start a bread club?  I live in Olympia and have a wood fired oven and am an experienced baker.  What did you have in mind?  Have others expressed interest?

Hey there Pat-

 It is incredibly awesome that you have a wood fired oven, I would love the opportunity to see it work.  I am still going to start a bread club.  Nobody has shown interest, although I haven't put anything tangible together yet.  I really thought about including Olympia in the idea but I think its too far too travel for people.  Maybe we could put our heads together and start two separate clubs at the same time?  I got some pretty good ideas from the fellas that responded to my february post, I just need to get on the ball and put it together. It would be great if you could email me.

Hi Pat, My husband and I are in Lacey.  We are not experienced bakers but are having fun learning.  Have you had any luck putting something together in Olympia?  We'd love to find a group to grow with!

Cheers,

Gerri

Hi Russel,

I might be able to manage a monthly or quarterly meeting.  I'm within 30 minutes of Tacoma.  I am into sourdough loaves, but would like to expand into cinnamon rolls, bagels, croissants, and source some Washington State grown (soft & hard) wheat for home grinding.

I am also in Olympia, and would be very interested in a bread club. I love baking just about anything, but bread is my absolute favorite. I am not sure if my abilities will be up to par with anyone else involved, but I am certainly willing to learn. So please keep me posted as well. Thanks. Heather

I just moved back to Tacoma and I would LOVE to join a local bread club. Have you put one together?

 

Cheers,

Trish
