I will look at the actual contract and give verification.    Also I will do rooms and make a list of things to sign up to bring over the next few days and get them posted.  It won't be long now.

Everyone.....I need to change the final payment date.   I will need your final payment by Jan. 20.    I was thinking check in was Feb 28 instead of 23.    Duh.

Wow, I totally missed this. I know I haven't been on much with the holidays but .....  I will get it to you ASAP.

Debbie, as a reminder, your jelly roll strips for strip poker only need to be 20" long - that's half the length of a normal jelly roll strip.

Items Needed

  • 3 or 4 large cutting mats   label with your name

  • 3 design walls    with 3M hooks for hanging

 

You may want to bring small lights for your work area, specialty rulers if needed, small extension cord.   The hotel provides a large "octupus" that we are able to plug most things into but it is nice to have an extra cord just in case.    Also if you need a special chair or cushion bring it with you.

 

We will have refrigerator space to put sandwich makings, drinks, munchies.   Coffee will be provided.

 

We won't need irons or ironing boards.   There are plenty at the hotel that we can use.

LRC       3 charm squares per game   5" squares from scrap fabric

Please bring an exchange gift that is wrapped.   This can be something that you have made or purchased.   In the past people have gifted charm packs, FQs, yardage, travel ironing mats, thread   etc

 

Some of us bring little gifts for each person.   This isn't in anyway expected.   The types of things given are mug rugs, candy, small pincushions,     Just little thinking of you gifts.      AGAIN.....THESE ARE NOT REQUIRED

 

I can't think of anything else.   Please let me know if I have missed something.

remind me - are these 5" squares?  Sorry, I just don't use them that often and have never bought any.  I tried googling one time but it came up with a variety so wanted to be sure I have the right size.
