2013 SCRAPBOOK WEEKENDS
November 22-24, 2013
Getting away for the weekend to scrapbook with family or friends is not only therapeutic and refreshing, but a fabulous way to reconnect and have quality time with a friend or family member who shares the same love of the craft. And most importantly, it's a chance to just sit back and be creative without interruptions! The sounds of conversation and laughter fill the crop room all weekend. New friendships are made and old friendships get to grow even closer. Mothers come with daughters, aunts come with nieces and sisters come to just have time alone together. And best of all the end result of scrapbooking is having set aside that special time preserving your family's memories.
The event provides you with a spacious work space, in addition to great product and technique demonstrations by professional scrapbook vendors. Excellent meals and accommodations are only a few of the added amenities to the package.
