TOPIC: What should I take on a two and 1/2 day retreat?

Bring what you need to finish those projects. But I have found if you forget something, someone else remembered it and will be willing to share. Just remember that it is a two way street. Someone may need something you brought. If you use other folks equiptment be sure to return it soon. They should not need to come looking for it.
As for the room mate, I have had good and bad experiences in this area. You really don't have to spend that much time together if you choose not to. Make sure that your table mate for the work time is not the same person that you are rooming with. You need to have the chance to get to know as many other folks as you can. Mostly Have fun, relax and quilt. Betty Ann in Florida.

Coffee and cola to stay awake all weekend long?

Ladies,

What great advice:

:oops: I like the advice for ear plugs...I do snore according to my husband. Of course he says that I wake him up all night long snoring. I don't see how that is possible, because I never get to sleep because of his snoring. There has to be a lesson there...somewhere.

:o I never thought about my roommate's habits and likes/dislikes. :roll: That is really good advice. Thank you!

:) Only 2 projects? I had already put 9 in my list. :lol: I figured I would leave several in the car so that if I actually finished one I could switch out.

CHOCOLATE...Is that the only thing quilter's think about other than fabric, thread, patterns, templates, needles, sewing machines, batting (wadding) and the right light?

Thank you again, Karen Wright in S.W. Ohio

Ear Plugs in case your room mate snores
And an extra set for her in case you do

Karen,

I say go with an open mind and relax. Use it as a time to get away from the kids, phone, family, etc. Pack 1 or 2 projects (and all the stuff you need for each) that you would like to work on. I would definitely bring extra supplies like thread, needles, etc. that you can't do without. Oh, and did I forget to mention chocolate? That's a given.

As far as rooming goes, you might want to ask your room-mate what her habits are. Does she like to work into the wee hours and sleep late? Does she want to chatter away all night while you want to get up early to work? Communication is definitely a must. If you ask nicely all should work out well.

Have a great weekend 8)

I am signing up for a retreat with my guild. :D I have never been on a quilting retreat in my life. :oops: It will start on Friday morning and end Sunday at 5.
I don't want to pack too much :lol: , but there will not be any vendors present so I must remember everything I will need and replacements if I break something. :oops:
I will be sharing a room with a total stranger. What is the ettiquette? :?
There will be no classes, just members of the guild working on their own projects and probably asking and giving advice.
Any suggestions will be gratefully accepted.
