    Hello all, this would be my first time participating in a fish extender group (WBTA 2014) and I was wondering how many people are in a group? And about how many gifts would I have to buy/make? Any info would be helpful, thanks!

    I think of making a fabric ice pack cover that will have straps so you can use it hands free. It will be the size of a reusable cold pack/hot pack. Or a small ziplock bag of ice.
    I will include a small ziplock bag that can be filled with ice for use on the cruise.
    What do people think of my idea?
    I am going for something that I have not seen on people talk about here and something that is handy and can be used when people go home, and is small and light to transport.
    I think it's a great idea!:cheer2:

    In a lucky way my brother owns a button maker. Since my next cruise is a surprise to my family I can't get them to help me make FE gifts, but it hit me I could get my brother and his friends to make me some buttons! (They're doing it as a hobby business.)

    I found some graphics online that people had made available for crafting, did some work in photoshop, and came up with some designs. I'll post pictures when I can.

    I'm a bit worried though - my FE group is kind of large and I'm going to be carrying a lot of buttons through airport security and customs. Has anyone done something similar? Has there ever been an issue?

    Yes, I made coasters out of ceramic bathroom tiles and imagine 40 of those heavy things in a carry on...lol

    I'm on that cruise too :goodvibes I think I read that they were going to split FE into smaller groups as so many of us interested. Don't know numbers though, sorry

    I love my coaster! Center of my table, definitely worth the hassle. Thank you to all you coaster makers!
