It was decided that all Guild equipment would be sorted and what we aren’t going to use, will be sold at a Rummage sale at the Fiber Workshop/Reno Rail Building on 4th and Sutro Streets at a future date. Please post pics of any Guild items you have on the CSSW Facebook page. Marilynn and Nancy will figure out space for storage, the Rummage sale date, and keep everyone posted.
