Join crafting friends from far and wide for a fun creative weekend at our In-Person 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.

What You'll Be Crafting:

We will be showing you first-hand a number of fun crafting techniques, like heat embossing, using masks and blending brushes, water-colouring, and more.... that you will then use yourself to create 12 fantastic projects.  All tools and supplies will be included in your event kit, and you get to keep them all and take them home.   

After you load in and get your table space all set up, we will begin with some light crafting fun 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 Nachos 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. We will have a full day with individual technique demos and your 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. 

Your Event Fee Includes:

  • All supplies needed to recreate the techniques we show you $130 in product value
  • Your own 6 foot crafting table for the entire event. 
  • 3 rounds of Lucky Hand with a chance to win great prizes. (Friday)
  • Fun table gifts throughout the weekend!
  • Door prizes and prize patrol for everyone throughout the event.
  • Refreshment on Friday evening.
  • Hot Lunch on Saturday.
  • Hot Dinner on Saturday.
    • There is a no-food option for those with special diet - use coupon code "nofood"
  • Coffee, Tea, Water and snack station throughout the event.
  • Tool Stations (cutting, embossing, trimming) for you to use to complete your projects.

Your non-refundable $130 deposit is required at registration to secure your crafting product order. The balance for meals, hall rental etc. is required no later than Thursday August 31st when registration closes. 

If you do not complete your final registration payment to attend the event, you will still receive your crafting product (pick up in Upper Tantallon or pay $20 to have it shipped) but you will forfeit door prizes, prize patrol, table gifts and other event attendee perks.

In the event something comes up that you cannot attend after you have registered, you can either transfer your registration to someone else (taking payment from them and letting us know the change), or you can request that we make your retreat an At-Home Box shipped to your home address.
