A friend of mine is closing her small business and is looking to sell OR DONATE to a nonprofit all of her scrapbooking/paper art/book making supplies, cutters, dies, etc. I mentioned MakeICT and she is very interested. She is only asking that it is picked up by the end of the month or sooner. I’ll try to figure out how to post pictures. This would be a big jump start for a new art/making opportunity!! ~Mary
@ladeana and others have talked about having this type of area. This could be a good start.
I too think we could use these materials in our classroom areas!
Yes. If she wants to donate, I would be glad to make a pickup.
You can get me at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange it if this is still available. I’ve been wanting to start a paper arts area. (Stamps, scrapbooking, origami, etc.
I can help!
I’m so excited for this! Ladeana, Debbie is going to email you with her info. I hate to see her close, but I’m glad that MakeICT is getting her supplies!
This makes me happy
Have we established any rules about how these materials can be used? What sort of reimbursement should be made for materials used? I have a friend (or two) who may be interested in teaching some classes and/or hosting a monthly ‘crop’ night.
I have not heard anything about the use of the materials. It almost seems like this should be under a separate committee lead, but the materials do currently reside in a classroom…
So would this be something that we need to coordinate with the classroom committee to establish?
I’d hate to see yet another committee formed, but I also hate to see more work for an existing committee. So, I’m split on it. Am I naive / crazy / entirely-too-wishful-in-my-thinking to suggest that maybe just establishing five or six bullet points on use and publishing those in the room would allow it to self-police as we don’t have any actual cost invested in the materials?
