Scrapbook Getaways was ‘born’ in 2009 after a colleague and I (Christine) saw an advert for craft retreats but it was well over our budget. So, we decided to do our own……… .and the rest is history.................
Our first event was in Butlins in Bognor Regis where we got the event for under £100 1/2 board….
1 advert and 2 weeks later we were fully booked and realised there was a call for this.
Between 2009 and 2023 we have been to 15 different venues but some we have been back more than once.
Each event not only have our regular ladies book,
but most events we have new people who come and have a wonderful time
So, what do we do? .....................…
WE don’t do classes or have anyone in to teach that is how we keep the costs down.
When you come you do your own projects.
If you think of a local daily crop ......times that by 3 plus a bit more.
However, there are people who have a lot of knowledge of scrapbooking ,
so there is always someone to ask for help and get hints and tips
We meet new people, make friends, network and have fun with having games
(craft bingo or a craft quiz)
and in past events,
we used to run raffles
(towards local charities that Scrapbook Getaways supported)
Unfortunately 14 years later we are unable to get the cost of an event for under £100,
but that hasn’t stopped any of the ladies from coming.
We have got 1 event in March of this year and 3 more planned for this year.
Please have a look at our gallery to ‘wet your appetite’, so you can see what we do,
If you haven’t been before, and would like to, please drop us a line
And we hope to see you soon at an event
So come and join us have a weekend away crafting,
and it doesn’t have to be scrap booking,
all crafter's are welcome.
It’s a place to come to relax, have fun and craft away without any disturbance
from family, animals, the phones etc
And crafting up to 24/7 is loved by everyone
Our saying is
” Come as a stranger…………….. Leave as a friend
