Do you want a weekend of crafting bliss and friendly company? Fancy getting away from everyone and everything and having some ME time? Does the idea of a weekend full of crafting and making new projects fill you with delight? If so, then these are the weekends for you! Read on for all the details of the 2017 Craft Retreats with Queen Pip!
Where are they held?
Located in the Warbook House Hotel the accommodation is clean, modern and the perfect size whether you’re on your own or sharing with a friend. The food is amazing and fully inclusive for the entire weekend. Crafting classes are included in your package along with a stuffed Goody Bag of crafting supplies from Stampin’ Up! Your table is huge and yours for the entire weekend, no need to tidy away for others!! Bliss.
These class supplies are provided to enable you to complete the projects for the 4 classes run throughout the weekend. You will have lots left over to take home too! The Goody Bag and everything you receive at the event will be more than £110 in value and is fully included in your package price.
What happens at Craft Retreat?
You can keep up with the class pace or do you own thing or just do a bit of what you like, it’s up to you, this is YOUR weekend. Most guests will complete some of each class, some more, some less depending on your crafting speed. There is no pressure or rush to finish everything. The key words are fun, friendly, relaxing, crafty and satisfying! I am very lucky to have help from the Spring Fairy and Father Christmas during my retreats, so always watch out for the surprises they might bring!
Evenings we have private dining, games and fun; and more crafting if you wish! The days will start at 9 am and finish at 4.30 pm with breaks for lunch and you have access to unlimited water, tea, coffee & hot chocolate throughout. Saturday afternoon you can continue to craft up until dinner if you wish, or break for a walk or relaxed chat in the lounge.
Don’t take my word for it – here are some testimonials I’ve received from guests:
Thanks so, so much! I’m sitting here watching Strictly and recovering from a fabulous weekend! It was so enjoyable, I don’t know how you manage it, but the mix was great again. We all seemed to work at our own pace, I’ve got loads still to work on and can’t wait to get going! – Barbara M
Well – what can I say Queen Pip has surpassed herself yet again! She is a lovely lady, who knows how to deliver a crafting weekend that is 100% pure pleasure from beginning to end! Crafting fun with the best crafting products, in a lovely hotel as a weekend break – what more could anyone wish for! I had a fantastic weekend it was brilliant. I don’t ever want to miss out, so will be starting my savings fund for 2017 ASAP! – Melissa S

2018 Spring Retreat Dates Announced
- Friday 27th – Sunday 29th April
- Friday 11th – 13th May
Pricing for 2018 has increased due to a hotel refurbishment & new management.
Early Bird Pricing for 2018:
Book before end of December 2017 and the rates will be as follows:
- Single occupancy is £355 per person or
- Double occupancy is £325 per person
- A deposit of £55 is required to guarantee your place
After 1st January 2018 the prices will increase to £380 for single and £350 for double per person.
Terms & important stuff
A Deposit of £35 (2017) or £55 (2018) is required to guarantee your place on a first come, first served basis. When using the payment plan it is your responsibility to ensure the payments reach me by the 1st of each month as required. If you are late by more than 2 weeks, then I will assume you are cancelling your place and apply the appropriate cancellation fees (see below).
If there is a VAT increase or decrease between now & the events, due to government changes, then these will affect your final price (either up or down) since I have to pay VAT at the prevailing rate! Nothing else should impact the pricing, but with Brexit, I feel we might get a VAT change which I’d have to pass on – but who knows!
Cancellation fees & policies apply:
The % of your fee that will be forfeit should you cancel within the time periods shown. If I can fill your place then the cancellation fee will not be applied. The cancellation fee will be based on when you cancel with me in writing and is to cover outgoing costs to the venue and the product kit ordered prior to the event. You will receive the balance as a refund via a cheque or bank deposit.
|Cancellation Notice Period||% Cancellation Fee|
|Between 6 months – 3 months before event||50%|
|Between 3 months – 6 weeks before the event||75%|
|6 weeks before – date of event||100%|
Should Queen Pip Cards need to cancel the event at short notice a refund is not provided. This will only be due to sickness or unforeseen circumstances. You may use the hotel facilities as booked & paid for. Goody bags will be shipped to you at Queen Pip Cards’ cost (provided full payment has been received). Queen Pip Cards will aim to hold the event with another demonstrator where possible to ensure your crafty fun. Depending on the circumstances this may not be possible. Queen Pip Cards’ decision will be final.
