Well, I’m guessing that if you are looking at our banner long enough, it’s probably not the hugest surprise to say that today, it’s time to tell you about the retreat that we have organised for you! YAY!!!
We are aware that many of you love the internet and the on-line classes that come with it, but sometimes there is nothing better than just a girly get together with other women who just understand :0) (Get out clause - we welcome men to our events too, we just don’t find many who understand!)
So, let’s begin by saying that we understand LOL :)
But here are the basics of what we have planned:
What? - A Papercrafting weekend / day using Stampin' Up! products
When? - Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th of July 2009
Where? - Holiday Inn, Guildford
How much? - That depends on how long you want to join us for LOL!
Who? - Anyone who loves papercrafting, loves SU and wants to play
So, in this credit crunching, non-spending, business downturn kind of time, we wanted to make this as accessible as we could, to as many of you that we could and this is what we came up with:
Each day (Saturday and Sunday) will run from 8.30am to 5.30pm and will include four papercrafting classes, refreshments, lunch and a whole heap of fun! We will also be running a Saturday night Party, which will have make and takes, demonstrations, games and general laughs and hilarities. The days will be intense with lots to concentrate on and the evening event will be far more relaxed – and a whole heap of giggles!
We have space for a maximum of 50 people for each session and the three sessions are split as follows:
Saturday Day: £90
Saturday Night Party: £25
Sunday Day: £90
You may book one session or all three sessions it is completely up to you.
You can book your place by paying us using the Paypal button on the right hand side (make sure it’s not the button for the On-line class – as much as we’d love to produce a weekend event for £15 per person, we’re not sure it would consist of much other than sitting in the car park LOL!). You will then be forwarded a confirmation email together with a form for us to collect your details on. We are able to take payment by cheque if that is easier, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org for more details on this option.
ACCOMMODATION IS NOT INCLUDED WITHIN THESE PRICES!!
The Holiday Inn, Guildford is a gorgeous hotel, but we thought it would be nice for you to decide how much you spent on accommodation, if you needed it, then it was up to you if you wanted to go Super Deluxe or blow up bed and ten to a room :0)
We have managed to negotiate discounted prices for rooms at the Holiday Inn, Guildford for a price of £80 PER ROOM (i.e £80 if it’s a single room, £40 each if it is a twin room) for one nights bed and breakfast and £55.00 PER ROOM if you want to stay for a second night (i.e. if you are staying two nights and sharing a room, the price is just £67.50 for two nights bed and breakfast!).
You can book this directly by phoning the hotel and you quoting ID KL6 as the reference to get these reduced rates.
Here is a link to the hotel so you can look at the pictures:
So, we think that this should cover most of the basics. Obviously nearer the time, you will receive everything that you will need to know as in what to bring etc but all in all, we thought it would be a whole heap of fun to get some people together and all do what we love doing.
Any questions, fire away by either posting a comment on this blog post or emailing us at email@example.com.
