Simply Solids retreat goody bag

When the party started at noon on Friday, we checked in at the desk and were given a lovely tote bag. Those of us who paid for our retreat in full on booking also received a £25 gift voucher which I spent on Sunday. More on that this Sunday.

The tote was a great quality and stuffed full of good stuff. Thank you to Lisa and Justine for the extra tote to be used as a giveaway at the Jersey Modern Quilt Guild's first meeting on Saturday 3 October.
What did the bag contain - well what didn't it contain more to the point. We also received a raffle ticket and the winner - Shevvy - won a box of Aurifil threads. I may have had the gingerbread man for breakfast whilst starting to unpack my stuff.
We received ever popular Aurifil threads. One of these may not have come from this goody bag and may have been one I took with me to make a bee block. That block is the only thing that hasn't come to the fore in my unpacking. Give me a few more days and it might appear.
A very generous gift from Sewline of a glue pen, marker and water pen to get rid of the lines from the marker.

We received two mini charm packs and a Kona FQ, but I particularly liked these FQs from Dashwood Studios. The fabrics also appear in a project in the issue of Quilt Now in our bags. A generous and quality goody bag all round. Thank you Justine and Lisa.
