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!
Unless you are staying an extra day, 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
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
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.
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.
We are the only guests at the retreat, so we have some flexibility on meal times. 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 snacks available. Coffee, tea, water and an assortment of beverages will be available in the stamping area during the day.
We have a lot of fun at the Summer Crafting Fun Weekend Retreat. This retreat is based on the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog being released June 1st, 2018. The focus at this retreat is relaxing and inspiration with more challenging paper crafting project.
Our setting for this retreat will be Saint Andrew’s House Retreat Center in Union, WA. This beautiful venue overlooks picturesque Hood Canal.

Hi! It’s Debbie from CraftyPerson. My team and I held a stamping technique mini retreat last month, from 10-3 on a Saturday, in downtown Portland. As you can see by our header photo, fun was had by all. Seeing the boys have a blast (and eating a lot of red licorice) is what it’s all about for me. People learning, creating, and having fun together!
