While the crafting area may not hold VHS's most dangerous tools, it is always important to not underestimate the dangers of small tools. There are many sharp blades and needles in this space that must be looked after, as well as hot glue guns, irons and noxious chemicals.
- Always cap your blades when not in use. This reduces damage to both humans and blades.
- Do not leave pins and needles on the floor. They have the potential to puncture footwear and then you need a tetanus shot.
- Unplug machines you are not using, especially hot irons
The biggest way to maintain a safe environment is to maintain a clean environment. Please clean up and put away anything you are not using in its proper home.
The crafting area has a mini library in the lockers beside the desk, containing machine manuals and patterns, as well as other helpful books and inspiration.
