NEW IN 2023 – we have the Bingo Hall – a separate building just a few steps away from the main hall – to use as a sleeping space. It should be darker and quieter than the previously used basement space.

Since co-crafting was so popular last year, we will also have some space available for all night crafting and sewing! Depending on the number of competitor teams, crafters may be be invited to show off what they accomplished over the night. Almost all crafts welcome, but please check with Eithni if you plan to do anything loud/messy/stinky/on fire/otherwise potentially dangerous or disruptive.
