You are quite welcome to leave your materials/projects and your rolling totes at your seat overnight in the Cropping Area. ScrapFest does provide security throughout the day and overnight. However, we do recommend that you take any expensive/valuable items (eg Cricut) home with you on Friday night as we are not responsible for any lost or stolen items.
