  3. Gwen Erin Natural Fibers reserves the right to recover the full or partial cost of severly damaged or lost equipment.
  4. Equipment can be rented for 7 days at a time and must be returned during business hours. Contact Gwen Brown if you need to make a special appointment for rental returns.
  5. Any equipment returned after the due date will be charged a late fee of $3 per day until the tool has been returned.
  6. Equipment can be renewed for another 7 days if the tool has not been reserved by another borrower.
  7. Rentals take place under the expectation that the signer of the agreement will be the only user of the equipment.
  8. When renting equipment, customers are expected to have an understanding of its operation. Renters must be able to use the equipment safely and competently. Please inform Gwen Erin Natural Fibers if you require assistant prior to rental.
  9. Before removing any equipment from the shop, renters must record the condition of the equipment including all scratches, dents, or missing pieces with an employee of Gwen Erin Natural Fibers. Customers will assume responsibility for any defects not noted prior to rental.
