Scrapbooking retreats are designed as a week end get-away with hotel accommodations, meals, a massage therapist and different treats at different locations.
I hold 4 weekend scrapbooking retreats a year. My January retreat is at the Ramada Inn, Saco, Maine. National Scrapbook Day is celebrated at my March retreat at the Hilton Garden Inn, Freeport, Maine. Croptoberfest location varies, and in 2017 we will once again be at the Sebasco Harbor Resort in Phippsburg, Maine: in a quaint lodge surrounded by the Atlantic ocean. November finds us finishing up the year with a smaller retreat at the Bar Harbor Inn, Bar Harbor, Maine, in Acadia National Park.
Scrapbooking: These retreats are designed for you to work on your projects at your own pace, and throughout the day we have optional breakouts where we teach new techniques, ideas, Project Recipes and much more. Your fee includes ingredients for most of these ideas presented.
Accommodations: At each venue you can choose one, two, three or four per room; Although the rooms at each venue are different, we have tested the beds and they are all comfortable and cozy. Room price varies depending on season and venue. Freeport is the home of world famous L.L. Bean, open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Sebasco and Bar Harbor are on the ocean and provide a very peaceful atmosphere. And January in Saco, well, it’s a time to get away to scrapbook because we need diversion from the deep winter snows that make us feel cooped up.
Cost: Event fee is $85 per person; you are guaranteed half of a 6 foot table and we have the room set up so you can set up a small 3 ft table at each table end. Some venues have options for having your own 8 ft. table. hotel fee is separate and will vary depending on hotel.
Dates: My 2017-18 retreats are scheduled for: October 20-22; November 10-12; January 12-15, 2018 (4 days!); March 16-18, 2018. To sign up, register by contacting me for a registration form.
