    awesome! have fun
    tip: clean & oil your machine, put on new needle and wind bobbins before you leave home. I always bring extra rotary blades and machine needles.

    Oh, have a wonderful time. A friend and I go to one every March, wouldn't miss it. Bring a variety of things to work on, cut and ready to sew if possible. I usually bring something already in progress, something small, and one more, possibly handwork. Breaks up the monotony if I am getting bored, or if I've made a mistake and need to step away from a project.

    I'd also recommend you bring the manual for your machine, just in case. Have also heard that the presser foot and power cord are frequently forgotten.

    Have a great time, we'll be looking forward to pictures!

    I love retreat. Nothing but eating,sleeping and sewing. Well their is a little gossiping that goes on. Right on about taking quilt projects ready to sew. You can use very large zip lock bags to place all cut pieces, extra fabric, and the pattern. I usually take 4 to 6 projects. Sometimes I am not in the mood to deal with that project. Also, make a list of all essential items, start now. Use the list to pack. Dress comfortably in layers because someone is always hot or cold and play thermostat shuffle. I usually wear pajamas all weekend.

    Actually I do more sewing on retreat than at home.
