Finally we have taken the huge step - for us that is :) - and created a blog to keep you, our customers, and other interested visitors, up to date with what is happening at Scrappin' Patch. But first a bit of background ......We are a new scrapbooking business just outside of Christchurch, New Zealand, having set up in October 2007. Pauline and Adrienne, both experienced scrapbooking tutors, own and operate the business together. We both enjoy scrapbooking, have different styles, and both have busy lives with our families so.... sometimes Scrappin' Patch doesn't have things happen as quickly as we would like but we do our best!!! We are planning to run crops and classes each month in both Rolleston and Lincoln, during day and evening. We also offer a service where we will come to your home and teach you and your friends how to create the layout or project of your choosing. Contact us to make a booking. Our classes are relaxed, fun, and, above all tailored to suit the attendees. At present you can either choose to have a class kit or come into the store and choose your own papers, cardstock, lettering, flowers etc as needed for each class.
Children's classes ran on two days in the holidays and were loved by all who came along. We made canvases and door hangers which now adorn the homes of their creators :) Our first adult activities are scheduled to begin this week with a crop in Lincoln on Friday 1 February - cost $5.00.
Our first official adult class is Make Three (layouts in an evening) class - cost $22.00 - on 15 February - all materials supplied except rubons. Just let us know if you would like to come along and we will send you the relevant details.
We have many plans but..... they all take a lot of time and funds so we will just keep chipping away until we have things looking and running as we would like.
Be sure to check out our website www.scrappinpatch.co.nz - we have a 20 - 60% off sale, ending this Thursday 31 January, to make way for new CHA stock arriving from the end of February.
