Weekend Retreat in Mablethorpe

WOW, what a fantastic weekend !!!!

Emily and I have just held our first Stampin' Up! Craft Retreat Weekend with a lovely bunch of ladies, including a car load travelling from Suffolk who took a slight detour to a craft shop, some of my Stampers 10 group from Thetford, plus others from Wellingborough and Branston in Lincolnshire.

Using Emily's large house, kept our costs lower which of course benefitted our crafters in keeping the cost low. The 5* guest house next door provided accomodation for some of our guests, plus full English breakfasts and buffet lunches for everyone.

Those sleeping at Emily's were lucky (or not so lucky given they helped with her Convention swaps) to enjoy extra crafting time, being made to feel at home by Emily. I am an early bird but even I was surprised to go to the kitchen at 6:40am to find two of our ladies in their PJs catching up on unfinished projects from the day before.

Everyone had a fantastic time and we were really pleased with the feedback received. I think everyone will be back in October 2012 for another Retreat.

Emily's son Caiden enjoyed all the fuss from the ladies !!
Unfortunately I can't share details of the projects we made as we have a repeat of the Retreat Weekend on 3rd - 5th February 2012 and need to keep the surprise for another group of ladies who we are looking forward to spending a fun-filled weekend with us. I'm sure some of our projects will make it on here later in February.

If you are interested in attending a future Stampin' Up! Craft Retreat Weekend, please get in touch with me - my contact details have been updated on the tab at the top.

Many thanks for popping by and look forward to catching up again soon.
