2017 Craft Retreat


Enjoy daily devotionals and scrapbooking workshops from a variety of gifted ladies while you fellowship with friends and fellow-crafters!

Tips on getting prepared:

  • Choose what you want to work on. One theme at a time works well. (i.e. vacation, school, wedding, heritage, holidays, pets, etc.)
  • Get pictures ordered and printed.
  • Stock up on adhesive.
  • Pick out album to go with theme and get page refills, too.
  • Start putting page layouts together – start with pictures and choose coordinating papers and embellishments.
  • Group them together in large ziploc bags or file folders, etc. This will help you pack lighter and not need to bring your entire stock of card stock, patterned paper, embellishments, etc.
  • Pack up the crafting supplies you will need and come have a wonderful and relaxing time.

Check-in is from 1:30-3 PM on Thursday, with supper at 6 PM and the first service at 7 PM The retreat ends at 4 PM on Saturday.


Be sure to check out our What to Pack page.
