Retreaters: I have a question for you
For the new retreaters, in the past we've exchanged little goodies with other retreaters. These little gifts have been handmade items related or not related to quilting, FQs, flashlights, notecards, magnets, etc.
This year we have a record number of participants and making gifts (or even buying things) could be cost/time prohibitive. A few of us have already scrapped our ideas.
How about we plan on each person bringing one nice gift (maybe a little bit bigger than in the past) and we'll do a Chinese Exchange? Each person will receive one larger gift instead of 20 little ones.
Let me know what you think of this idea. If you've already gotten started on little ones, then you could proceed if you still wish, but we'd still need a larger one to be fair all around.
