How to begin, I really don't know. So I will just begin this post....
Scrappin' Patch is closing as of 28 February 2014. This has not been
an easy decision, and I feel a great sadness as I will miss the daily
contact with my customers, both instore and online, my involvement with
the industry will change, and I won't get to unpack all the gorgeous

what is happening in the scrapbooking world. Scrappin' Patch has been a
huge part of my everyday life for the last 6.5+ years and closing it
will leave a big gap.
At the same time I have great peace with
this decision. As many of you know I am a Christian, my relationship
with Jesus is the most important one to me, and so I have prayed about
this for some time and know that God is calling me to a new path in
life. It is the right decision for my own wellbeing, for my phsically
struggling husband, my children and children-in-law, and grandchildren -
these precious people are the most important to me and are worth any
sacrifice to me - and to begin the next path in my life.
retreat will definitely go ahead, and I will still bring the shop there
as planned but it will be different. The shop will be there, lots of
gorgeous product will be available to purchase as it would have been if I
continued as now. And future retreats – I love them, organising,
running, spending a weekend scrapping – a decision on these will be made
I am in discussion with a possible purchaser so while
this is the end of Scrappin' Patch as you have known it for 6.5 years,
it may be the beginning of a new Scrappin' Patch under the ownership of a
