    How about a pencil and a notepad to write down things that they would want to remember.

    Checkbook covers, homemade scissor lanyards (one jelly roll strip and a clip), dollar store door stops to tilt your machine forward, granola bar, scissor charms, name tags to write their name on, coasters for a drink, mug rug,...lots of great small projects, needle case, etc.

    Thank you so much for all the great ideas!
    I haven't decided exactly what to do yet, but since it's the first weekend of May, I'm thinking a little flower pot with the round thingy to keep things from rolling around, my neck cooler things since they're already made, a seed pack of flowers with a pen dressed up as a flower, a little paper, some eyeglass cleaners & maybe the water idea. Anyway, your ideas got me thinking and I appreciate it so much!

    These are all great ideas! I love the one from Jan - I use those round "things" on my lap tray when I am eating in my recliner to keep the dishes from sliding. I never thought to put one by my machine. Thanks, Jan.

    Get one of the rubbery/grip shelf liners. Cut into pieces that are about 4" X 4". they can be used to put between your ruler and the cutting mat to prevent the ruler from sliding. These were in the goodie bags given away by our guild this year when we hosted Quilter's Day Out. :c)

    Great ideas! I'll be keeping these in mind for our small group retreat!

    One thing I've made for my group are criss-cross coasters. They're quick and easy. Don't know if you have time to make 25 though...maybe if you had help with the cutting.

    How do you make the neck cooler things? Have several friends that are plagued with hot flashes
