Stamp With Us Retreat - September 2010

Stamp With Us are excited to announce their next 2010 Retreat in Haslemere, Surrey.
8.00am Saturday 4th September – 5.00 pm Sunday 5th September 2010 at Branksome Place, Hindhead Road, Haslemere , Surrey, GU27 3PL
Classes start at 8.30am on both days and each day will consist of classes taught by
Monica Gale, Natalie O’Shea and Zoe Pierson.

Classes will include a mixture of techniques and projects and will use Stampin’ Up! products. There will be an assortment of papercraft classes and each class will be around two hours long. Previous classes consisted of mini albums, scrapbook pages, boxes, paper handbags and lots of cards. All products are included in the cost – you only need to bring a basic tool kit with you. Full details of what you need to bring will be sent to you a week or two before the event.

Over the experience of the last two events, we have come to the conclusion that most of you would like an all-inclusive price, so we are happy to offer the following:

At Branksome Place, all rooms are for one occupant, therefore, the following prices
apply per person in your own rooms:

To join us all day Saturday and enjoy all of the classes, lunch, dinner, Party Night, overnight accommodation Saturday night, Sunday classes and Sunday breakfast and lunch, the cost per person is £350.00.

If you wish to stay the Friday night to make sure you are refreshed and ready for your early Saturday morning start, then for accommodation in your own single room and breakfast on Saturday morning can be arranged for an additional £70.

Depending upon our numbers, we *may* be able to accommodate a couple Day Delegates, please contact us for more information and prices on this option if you are interested.

At the beginning of your stay, you will have your own table where you will sit for each class and make your “own”. There will be unlimited coffee, tea and snacks available throughout the day. Lunch will be provided each day too with a hot and cold buffet on the Saturday and a Roast lunch on the Sunday.

Please email us for more information and a booking form. Places are not confirmed until deposits are received.

We really look forward to seeing you so that you can come and STAMP WITH US!

Natalie, Zoe & Monica!
