Can’t wait to share the event. If [everyone] just knew how great your events are!!!!!  Best use of money-hands down!

I had a wonderful time at the Technique Retreat 2015 and enjoyed all the projects. The retreat was well-organized, had beautiful projects, and the venue was amazing. I’ll definitely sign-up for the next one!

Each spring I look forward to attending the Craftyperson’s technique retreat! There is always delicious foods, a serene setting, thoughtfully prepared projects and lots of surprises. The staff and facilities are top notch and Debbie has a great group of ladies that love to share their ideas and more than willing to help each other. One of my favourite parts is showing up with just scissors! She provides everything so there is not stress about packing either. All project supplies are provided even the adhesives. The event is designed so you can complete the technique project without stress and take your time. I you are a night owl or just speedy there is also a MarketPlace where her designers provide more detailed projects. Some of the projects are seen above. They always blow me away with their ideas and it’s lovely that they are right there to answer any questions and help you along if you need extra guidance. These projects are optional and reasonably priced. Visit her Craftyperson website if you might like to be included in one of her events. You will be happy you did!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Where is the retreat?

Rockaway Beach, Oregon.

Is there a Saturday Only Reservation?

On July 31st, if we still have room we will make a few Saturday only spots available at $97.  In the past, this event has sold out completed so we have not been able to offer the Saturday Only.

What should I bring to the event?

I would bring minimal crafting supplies besides your favorite drink or snack. All project supplies are provided for except for the following:
1) High quality acrylic blocks for stamping:
2) Your favorite craft adhesive (I supply liquid glue)
3) Your favorite pair of scissors

What are the rooms like?

Each room has a double bed and a twin bunk with a full bathroom.

Can I stay an extra day?

No unfortunately not at this facility

What is the MarketPlace?

It has been my experience from past events that some guests like to take their time and not be rushed (that’s me). I’ve designed the event so you can complete included technique projects without being rushed. However, there are those who stay up late or quick at completing the projects so I have created the MarketPlace. The MarketPlace is where top paper crafting designers will offer projects to be completed that are more detailed projects (or just plain cute), ranging from cards to gift giving. This is your opportunity to craft amazing projects with the designer on hand to help guide you and answer questions. These projects are optional. The prices and themes will vary, generally between $1 to $35.

MarketPlace projects are not included in the retreat price

Is my registration/ticket transferable?

You are available to transfer your registration to someone else or have the projects mailed to you.

What is the refund policy?

Due to the nature of this intimate event, details are planned and personalized far in advance for each of our guests, so all deposits and payments are 100% non-refundable. The registration fees are invested to secure your spot and to order the supplies.

In the unlikely event the retreat is cancelled by the organizer because of weather or illness, you will have an option to either attend a rescheduled event or we will refund lodging and food costs and send you all the supplies to complete the projects at home.

What if I have a food allergy?

The retreat’s food service staff receives great reviews from guest groups, especially it’s homemade goods. Special assistance is available for individuals with specific dietary needs, including diabetics and vegetarians. Please let me know during registration if you have specific dietary needs or food allergies.

I have a mobility challenge, can I still attend?

All the rooms are on bottom floor. It is an easy walk to the cafeteria where we eat. The trail is paved the complete way.

When are meals served?

Breakfasts are served between 8:00am to 9:00am. Lunch is served at noon. Dinner is generally served around 5:30pm. Friday night meal service is at 7pm. We will have coffee, tea, and water available in the stamping area during the day.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

I’m happy to help. Please use the Contact Us link at the top of the page to contact me.
Summer Stamping Retreat @Home

Summer Stamping Retreat @Home

A half day of card and paper crafting! 8 fun fold projects, online classes, prizes, stamp set, ready-to-go kits, adhesives, and fun.

My Summer Fun Stamping Retreat in Union Washington filled up quickly so I’m adding a online version in July. Let’s gather for some focused time to be creative and share from the heart. It’s our time to relax, socialize, craft and get ready for the busy holiday season – all done from the comfort of your own home.

Hopefully this will be exactly what you need to get your crafting going this summer.  All projects will be mailed to you and you can follow along with me and others for part of the day, the whole event or craft on your own.

I’ll be featuring the Flowers of Friendship bundles with a fun fold focus using the new 2021-2023 In Colors.  All you will need to supply is the ink pads, scissors, and acrylic block/stamparatus. Cut and measured supplies, adhesives, videos, and downloadable instructions will all be provided for 8 projects.  You will be receiving a stamp set and punch that we will be using on all projects.

The projects will include both cards and 3D projects.  I’m expecting attendees will have experience stamping so basic rubber stamping skills won’t be covered in this online retreat.  I will be around all day, virtually, to provide assistance.

Packages being shipped 2 weeks prior to event and should arrive on time for the event. You’ll have an option to see and request optional projects to be delivered at the same time.

I can’t wait to share with you the summer fun sessions we always have every year virtually with prizes, instructions, and projects you will turn to over and over again. We will be using Zoom for our four online classes. You’ll also have access to the videos and instructions from a secured webpage.

Registration ends July 13th, 2021
