Tidy up the Barudan Supplies and Accessories

Return the needle threaders, tweezers, and applique scissors to the storage box.

Remove files from the floppy disk you used and place the disk back into the disk storage box.

Return any hoops you have used to their place in the storage area.

Check the surrounding area for anything you might have temporarily stashed during your session and return the item(s) to their proper place so the next user can find them easily.

Take a moment to vacuum up all of the thread bits that have fallen to the floor, and put away the iron and ironing board if you have used them.

Report Issues or Learning Experiences to the Slack Channel

If you encountered any issues, mention them in the Slack Channel. Possibly someone else has had the same issue and we can find a better solution for everyone. Perhaps more importantly, if you discovered something that made your session easier or more enjoyable, please let the rest of us in on the secret.
