New to blogging ... New owners

Hi all,

Well as you know Scrappin patch has new owners and part of the hand over of the business was this blog.  We are very new to blogging so have lots to learn but I hope to blog much more often with a mix of posts covering scrapbooking, card making, craft items, classes, crops and new products.

Also later in the year our new creative team will also be featured here.

We are waiting on new stock to arrive in this week but we have a small stampin up range loaded this week including a cute banner punch perfect for cards and scrapbooking and profect life and birthday cakes.

Here's an example made last nite with the fabulous Victoria Cross

Next post will be of my craft room.

Happy scrappin

The next steps...

Although Scrappin' Patch has been sold I will be continuing to run annual retreats, crop days, crop nights, and other scrapbook or cardmaking events.  You can follow our blog Scrap Away Retreats and Events, or join our Facebook group to be kept up to date with the latest happenings. My email to join the mailing list is

We had a fantastic day of cropping in the shop today with a dozen or so ladies. In futur our crop days will happen on the fourth Saturday of each month, the next being on 26 April.  Bookings to Adrienne   Cost is $5.00 if no heating required and $10 if heating required.  Tea/Coffee/Milo supplied.

Change of ownership

Good evening!!

I am thrilled to announce that as of 20 March 2014 Scrappin' Patch will be owned by Glen & Susan Pincock from Upper Hutt, Wellington.  I am confident that you will support the new owners in the same way you have supported me over the years, and look forward to seeing the Patch continue on.  Once again, thank you all for your wonderful support. 

I plan to continue to organise and run annual Retreats, regular monthly 'Shed Days' and perhaps 'Shed Nights' in the shed for cropping and cardmaking (likely to be on Fridays or Saturdays), and perhaps other craft days too.  The shed is also available to rent, at a cheap cost, to groups who would like to use it for a crop or other event.  Information about the cost can be obtained by emailing me.  My email address will change as of the 20 March as the scrappinpatch email addresses will no longer come to me, they will go to Glen & Susan.  So to be kept informed about Retreats, Shed Days, or to make contact for booking the shed for your own event please note that my, Adrienne's, email address is  You will not be able to reach me on the scrappinpatch email addresses from next week. 

And just maybe, I may also have other things up my sleeve in the way of crafting!!! You can also keep up to date with me on Facebook, if you would like to - just search my name. And the retreat blog will continue and may also be used for announcements of events, crop days, etc.

Orders can be placed on the website with Adrienne until Saturday 15 March, after which time the website will be closed and will reopen on 23 March with Glen & Susan.

From Glen & Susan
We are a married couple based in Upper Hutt - Wellington who, when we saw that Scrappin' patch was going to close we saw an amazing chance to keep this fantastic shop and service alive and give us a new project, business, and opportunity.  So we went down and met with Adrienne and she accepted our purchase offer.  We are very excited and a little nervous as we know we have huge shoes to fill.  We plan to collect the stock on Thursday 20 March and then transport it back to Wellington to reopen the website on Monday 23rd March.  We do apologise for any inconvenience and orders may be a little slower for the first week or so as we learn all the new stock and systems.  Once we have the website back up and running we will have more about us and we have lots of ideas and plans but want to provide you with a fantastic fast service.  We look forward to helping you.  Happy Scrappin Susie & Glen Pincock.

So the future of the Patch is in good hands and is set to continue into the future.  And for that I am very grateful.  I wish Glen & Susan every success as they embark on this new adventure!
Happy scrapping,
