Peterborough Retreat Classes!!! Yippee!!

Today is the day! I promised my retreat guests (and avid blog readers) that I would post the classes for our upcoming Peterborough Retreat today by 4pm. Phew! I'm pretty close!! But.... as you will see, they are worth the wait! hehe

We will be having 4 classes available to take at this retreat. All retreat guests have the opportunity the take one class complimentary as part of their registration fee (up to a $20 value) Guests are more than welcome to take additional class - the additional fees for each class are posted here so you know in advance. All extra class fees are due upon arrival at the retreat (but I will talk more about that when I email my guests directly after I make this post)

All Classes are on a first come, first serve basis. You will need to bring a basic class kit with you (trimmer, wet and dry adhesive, scissors, ruler, pencil) and any other "class specific" materials mentioned in the class descriptions. There will be a store onsite (run by me) that will have all the materials required just in case you forget something or don't have it on hand. Any questions, please feel free to email me at any time!

So.... without further ado:

10:45 am - noon
