    Default Retreat questions

    I'm getting packed up for my first ever quilt retreat.....actually it's a Scrapbooking Retreat put on by a group I used to belong to when I was a scrapbooker. It's a wonderrful group of ladies, my special DIL included. They generally hold the events in a hotel and the venue is not conducive to quilting. This time they have rented a large house in a nearby town that is set up for all kinds of crafts - quilting included. Soooo I'm joining those paper cutting gals once again. The retreat runs from 2pm on Thursday through 5pm on Sunday....and tomorrow is the big day.

    Now - with all that being said - I need all you seasoned retreaters to tell me what I absolutely must take. I've got all the usual stuff - rulers, rotary cutter, mat, iron, pins, clips, tape measure, a couple of projects semi-ready to work on, sewing machine, ott light..... well you get the picture. But I really need to know what NOT everyday item I should pack.
    Any help you can give would be most appreciated.

    If you are bring your own cup I would advise one with a tight fitting top in case it gets knocked over or bumped it will not affect your machine or project.
    Nobody is going to stand up at your funeral and say she had a really expensive sofa and great shoes Life is not about stuff.

    Extension cord will be handy. Don’t forget snacks (M & M’s).
