    7AM Doors Unlocked
    7AM Continental Breakfast provided by MSQC Retreat Center
    No Plans for the Day
    11 AM Check Out Time (we do need to be out by 11AM)

    A couple of things to remember –

    1. This is YOUR RETREAT!!! Feel free to participate in as many of the planned activities as you would like. If you would rather work on your own project or socialize, feel free to.
    2. The Sizzix machines and dies will be available for you to use.
    3. With a full house, workspace will be at a premium. You will have half a table for your sewing machine and other items. There is NOT room for you to bring your own table but there is some space for you to bring a TV tray if you want to have your own ironing space. There will be several ironing stations with irons set up. There is not a design wall so our default seems to be a design floor.
    4. Meals will be served at specific times then cleaned up. You have the option to eat at the retreat center during meal time or to try one of the many great restaurants in town at your own cost. (I highly recommend finding time to get a shake from Js and a sweet treat with fresh local milk from Mama Hawk’s sometime during your stay.)

    Thanks for this schedule, Charyti ! It helps immensely. I was planning on having my special dinner with Steve early Monday evening - but will have to delay it - don't want to miss Jenny's Trunk Show. Gonna pretend it's a private show just for me - just like my parade held in 2014!

    (It's so much fun in the pretend world I have in my mind. Too weird, huh?!?!?!)

        Oh, this is so helpful! Thank you, Charyti, for organizing us. This retreat is going to be so wonderful!
        Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

          Someone had asked about how we were going to do favors this year. Here is the current plan: We will be doing all of the favors on Sunday night. We are going to be taking time to hand out the favors at one time. The plan is for everyone to sit down and we will go around the circle briefly talking about the favor we made and handing them out. If by chance someone was unable to make it in til Monday, I will have a bag to put their favors from others. I am hoping this will avoid having people missed and everyone gets to learn more about each other.
