Are you interested in coming to a creative class or event? I host a variety of events, both card making and memory keeping, (daytime and nighttime events) scheduled locally on the Sunshine Coast.  I have also expanded my offerings to include online classes.  Need further information, contact me. Bring along your basic kit for each class. Don’t have what you need, I have adhesives on hand for purchase. If you need any Stampin’ Up! supplies, you can purchase online from my online store or contact me directly. This is my upcoming Creative Class Calendar – for further details re card-making classes and memory keeping classes, check below.

It is airconditioned, so bright and airy, with wheelchair access, tables, multiple toilets and a shared kitchenette.

Numbers are strictly limited as I am keeping this as a boutique retreat (numbers restricted to 15) – so get in early to make sure you don’t miss out on all the fun. Everyone is welcome, even if you have never attended one of my classes or retreats before. Bring a friend/s or come along to meet new people who are as passionate about crafting as you are. I will be complying with the COVID requirements of the time. If for some reason you cannot make the retreat, I will post your goodie bag to you with the make-&-take projects.
