  10. At a quilting retreat, I love having time to work on my unfinished projects. It is also fun to have demos for projects that can be finished in a small amount of time. At one retreat that I attend, there is a pincushion swap. Participants make a pincushion before the retreat. The pincushions are wrapped. They participants participate in a swap by drawing numbers. There have been some real masterpieces created. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
