    A pan of brownies, a bag of chocolates, a bag of tangerines, basically anything easy and share-able. Bottled water, your sack lunches unless that stuff is provided.
    Take two or three UFO's to work on and the things needed to finish them. That way if you get tired of working on one or get it finished you'll have something else to do.

    I would take a package of machine needles in case you break more than one. Hope that doesn't happen, but you never know. Bottled water and snacks are good too. Also take several spools of thread in your color choices. You may also want to take some hand sewing needles and a thimble if you plan to finish your binding by hand. That way you just might come home with some truly "finished" objects.
