Join crafting friends from far and wide for a fun creative weekend at our In-Person Retreat By The Sea - Spring Crafting Retreat in Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia - or - Craft in the comfort of your home from anywhere in Canada with our At-Home Retreat Box Option. Our In-person event takes place over two days, but you can decide for yourself what fits your schedule best - if you can't come and stay over Friday night, that's OK - you can just do the full day Saturday.

Look At What You'll Be Crafting With:
We have loads of crafting fun prepared for you.  Each attendee will be receiving the entire "By The Bay Product Suite Collection, which includes stamps, dies, ribbon, adhesive pearls and beautiful Designer Series Paper which are yours to keep. You will also receive card bases and other project materials to complete the projects.

Glad Were Friends Pack
  Vintage Christmas Pack

After you load in and get your table space all set up, we will begin with some light crafting fun and a Pick & Choose "Sampler" Crafting Session and social get-to-know-you activities. That will be followed up with our fabulous "LUCKY HAND" card game with lots of fantastic prizes to be won! We will have Pizza and refreshment Friday evening as well.

If you're making a get-away weekend of it, you can stay overnight in multiple nearby hotels (not included in your event fee. We will include a list of reservation phone numbers and locations of the most convenient places in your confirmation email). 

We will be starting bright an early with hot beverages and the unveiling of the Main Retreat Crafting Package featuring the "By The Bay Suite Collection". We will have a full day with lots of fully prepared crafting projects.  We will have table gifts, special treats, door prizes and prize patrol for everyone throughout the day.  We might even have another game or two as well. 

Something Old, Something New, Something Salty, Something Blue..... this new suite of products works so well with all kinds of retired ocean and sea themed sets we have had in the past.  We encourage you to bring along any sets you may own, and we will do the same - in fact we will have additional project suggestions and inspiration for you using some of our favourites.
