Friday evening around
5:00/5:30 p.m . - we
will have a casual dinner in the Hospitality House! The menu is
in the works, I'll share the details when completed.
The cost will be approx. $10 per person.
Friday evening will bring fun and
games! It will be a Pals Party!! Lots of fun
and laughter, games (with prizes & giveaways) and goodies.
We will have the Grab
Bag Exchange. Each Pal wanting to participate will bring a grab
bag of stitching goodies (ie. needles, floss, accessories, fabrics,
specialty fibers, buttons, beads, charms, etc.) valued at least $20
(you can spend more - many do - but be aware
that you may receive a grab bag with only $20 worth
This is not a required actitivity, only those bringing a grab
bag will get to participate. Also, please note that the
items in your grab bag should be things you yourself would like
to receive, not recycled (ie: OLD) items. The grab bag exchange
has always been one of the most popular "events" at
the convention, and we encourage everyone who has not attended
before to bring a grab bag. The "most popular"
bag (i.e. the one that's passed around the most) will win a
nice prize! The bag can be anything you can dream up! In the
past we have had so many types of "bags", including gift bags, tins, fabric totes,
homemade totes from cute fabric, garbarge cans, fishing
tackle box, cookie jars, sewing baskets, fabric & wooden trunks,
hatboxes and the list just goes on &
on & on! Some people stitch something and make their "container"
with it. See how creative you can be! Make sure no one can
see what's in the bag (no peeking until everyone has one!) and
also be sure to put a card or note with your name in the bag
so we will know who to thank. Please remember to put only NEW,
UNUSED items in the bags!
We will also have a Christmas
ornament exchange. You will receive
an ornamnet for each ornament you bring. For
example, if you bring one, you will leave with one,
if you bring 6, you will take home 6, etc. If
you have any questions, feel free to ask!
The Hospitality House will be open
after the Pals Party. Come join in for even more stitching, fun
