If you're reading this on the Wiki, a full (searchable) list of materials and supplies in the Craft Room follows. (This material is still under construction, but will eventually include use instructions for using all the equipment in the room.)

If you're reading this in the Craft Room on the wall, start up the shared Craft Room laptop (in the southwestern corner of the room--the one with all the stickers on it) and have a look at the Wiki page, at http://i3detroit.com/wi/index.php?title=Craft_Room.

To Request a Change in the Craft Room

If you would like to see changes in the craft room, feel free to contact Kevin Flory. I'm particularly interested in requests for materials or equipment you'd like to see stocked. I'll also take suggestions on new layouts you'd like to see, although I may not be able to honor all requests.

For minor restocking requests, feel free to leave a note or use the whiteboard by the pencil sharpener.

About Donations

While I appreciate all donations, please check before leaving any donation larger than a loaf of bread. Space is tight in the craft room these days, and I'd hate to discard your donation due to a lack of room!
