Simply Secret Sisters  

We have been waiting not-so-patiently to tell you about a fantastic new program launching at Sew Simply Stitch this year: Simply Secret Sister! We grew up loving pen pals and Secret Santa programs; I mean, who doesn’t love getting fun little surprises from new friends?! This new program brings together the best of both of those worlds by pairing you with another attendee you’ll get to know better and shower with three small gifts, revealing your identity on the last day!

​​​​
So here are the Simple Secret Sister details....

Before Sew Simply Stitched Retreat
The program is totally voluntary; only sign up if this something that interests you!
Once you’ve signed up, you’ll be paired with another person attending Sew Simply Stitched and sent their information.
Do some research about your secret sister...even stalk them on social media.


Purchase or make three gifts for your secret sister. Make sure each gift is valued at no more than $5 each and that each gift is wrapped and numbered on the bottom (ie: a 1 for the first gift to be given, a 2 for the second gift, etc.).
Make sure that you clearly label who your gifts are for with their name for all three days. Only include your name on the gift to be given on the last day (number 3)! 

At Sew Simply Stitched Retreat
Bring your three gifts to registration with you. There will be a separate table where we’ll collect all the gifts so you won’t have to worry about remembering them during the rest of your time at the conference.

(Sherie.... do you want to deliver them or have a table where people can come find them)...Gifts will be distributed during specific hours at the conference. We really recommend picking up your gifts earlier in the day, if at all possible.


Remember to keep your identity a secret until the last day of Sew Simply Stitched. That’s part of the fun!
Now, we know that this is a big chunk of information to take in, but we know that it’ll be a blast. To help you out while planning, here are a few pictures of some gift examples, plus a handy PDF you can print out with gift ideas and helpful hints to make the Secret Sister program work best for you.

So are you in and ready to be paired with your Secret Sister? 


























Last thing: If you choose to sign up and participate, awesome! We’re excited to have you join us! Please make sure that you follow through and bring the gifts for your Secret Sister. It would be a total bummer if someone didn’t get the experience they expected!
