    Retreat prank needed

    I'm at a quilt retreat. This morning the organizer hid my pins and watched with the rest of the crew as I searched and finally borrowed a friends only to have mine reappear while I was at the ironing board. I have till tomorrow for a gentle little payback. Ideas?
    So many quilts, so little time.

    put something between the foot pedal and base, so it wont run or a piece of tape under spool so it wont roll or tape hidden in several spots in folded fabric so it won't s shake open even. maybe I need to stop there before we get into big trouble, lol

    If there is a window and you sit near it ... annouce "LOOK AT THAT" and as soon as everyone stops to look, say "oh it's gone". Then do it again a while later. When they ask "what was it" all you can say is "I don't know, strangest thing I've ever seen and I don't know if I can describe it". How many times can you get them to stop and come to the window?
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I like all your ideas. We are a diabolical (is that spelled right) bunch. I especially like the window trick. Let us know if it works and which trick you used.

    At our retreat one of our members sit at her sewing machine and when no one was paying much attention, she took off her shirt. Underneath she had put on her bra OVER a tee shirt. It took awhile for someone to notice and the laughter spread and lasted for a long time.
    Got fabric?
