I'm new to quilting -- actually a re-entry quilter -- and I'm going to my first retreat soon. I'm quite excited because I really like these people, have a ton of projects to work on, and look forward to learning from everyone else.
There is a $5 exchange where each participant brings a brown paper lunch bag with $5 worth of quilting things in it. The suggestion was to be creative using coupons etc. I gather that people go beyond the $5 amount. My question to all of you is for suggestions on what to include. Although I haven't made full size quilts in about 20 years, I do make paper pieced miniatures and thought I might make a teeny Christmas ornament to include. I just don't have ideas for the "store bought" item(s).
