I know you are creative people - here's a small problem. The clothes dryer in the WSU costume shop has shuffled off its mortal coil, just when GRSF needs it the most 🙁
But WSU Theatre Department can't purchase a new one in time to get them through the next week or two!
Here's the challenge - do any of you have or know of a sturdy electric dryer that GRSF and WSU Theatre could borrow for a couple weeks or purchase very cheaply?
Thank you! - Peggy Sannerud
