Retreat Opens at NOON on Thursday with a
Meet & Greet Reception, Coffee and Cookies
Each attendee will have 4' (half of an 8' table) of personal space.
This is your station where you are welcome to work and leave your supplies and projects when you take a break or leave for the day.
Be mindful of the amount of stuff you bring; it should fit beneath or on top of your 4' section of table.

Goody Bags For Everyone!

Our reception will be followed by the complimentary basic scene building class.
This is a very basic class being offered for those who have never done scene stamping,
or who have never had much success with masking techniques.
This is a spring board for everyone to have a productive and successful 3 day stamping event!

We have offered "meal plans" in the past, and the overall consensus was that people prefer to eat when they are hungry, and to go where they want. If you stay on-site, breakfast is included in your room rate.
Refrigerators are included in the rooms.
Many eateries of all price points are located nearby, some deliver.

You have the ability to work round the clock, or until you drop.
The last one out at night is responsible for seeing that the front desk personnel lock our room.

You will need to bring or purchase your own consumables (inks, markers, papers, adhesives, eclipse tape/post-its, embellishments, etc.)
You may want to bring some of your own tools (brushes, acrylic blocks, brayer, die cuts/embossing folders, etc.)
You will need specific supplies (ask for the list) for any classes you may want to take.

All of the Stampscapes images for everyone to share.
Many stamps from many other companies for everyone to share.
Air brush station (you provide your own sketch Copic markers)
Tool station which will include:
paper trimmer(s), ruler, ScorIt board, heat gun, pencil sharpener, some punches, Cuttlebug or comparable,
and perhaps more. Requests considered.
We will provide stamp cleaner. Everyone is responsible for cleaning the stamps they use.
