I'll be attending after 2pm. As for organization, I come across a fair
amount of clear storage containers at M.E.C.C.A. Would clear shoebox-sized
storage totes be helpful in anyway? Any other sizes?
I'll also be bringing a fantastically, functional sewing machine scored
from a freebox!! I'd like to carve out a little corner in the warehouse to
store the machine, an ironing board along and a small amount of materials
for EMS members. If the space under the stairs is still available I think
that would be a good location.
