    Supply list?

    Where would I find the list of supplies that has been posted in the past for what things we should bring for the retreat? I have looked back on the 2019 group and couldn't find it. Could someone please help me? Thanks

    I don't think they have a supply list put together yet. That will probably come out after the mini lessons are finalized.
    One yard of fabric, like one cookie, is never enough!

      I was wanting like the one they had last year before the retreat on things you should remember to bring. Even your personal items. I wanted to share it with a friend so she knows what to start thinking about gathering up for her first retreat! Thanks

        Here is the link: https://forum.missouriquiltco.com/just-for-fun/-2020-fall-forum-retreat/1840293- On our group page, if you go under topics, you can find all of the posts that were posted before the change over. It has been a challenge learning how to figure out the way the new pages operate. I will be adding supplies for various classes as they become available.

        And here is the list Below is a list of Retreat Packing items that might help you figure out what you want to pack. This is a list is compiled from many people bring – please don’t feel like you need to bring everything on the list as this is to just give you some ideas of what you might want to bring.
        ***Please label your items as many have the same brand of item or things are borrowed and it is easier to return the items to the owner.***
        FEEL FREE TO ADD TO THE POST ANYTHING THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN FORGOTTEN OR YOU THINK OF!!!
        Wrapped layer cake or jelly roll if you wish to participate in the Sunday night game (this replaces doing favors)
        One Door prize unwrapped if you wish to participate - just one door prize

        Show and tell items if you would like to share something you have made with the group

        For the mini lessons this year, plans are still in the works for which ones we will be doing. So the supply list for the projects will be in another post.

        There should be plenty of time for you to work on your own personal projects, shop, visit or whatever else you would like to do.


        Other things to possibly bring:
