To organize eTextile Spring Break, organizers meet bi-weekly to produce the week-long event. Organizers participate in creating and updating the website, coordinating space + lodging, ordering materials, taking inventory, and more. Additionally organizers arrive to the event early to set up and stay later to break the event down. If you are interested in coming early or staying later to help setup or break down, email info@etextilespringbreak.org.
