Are meals included?
Your Cabin has a kitchenette and we invite you to bring your own breakfast.  Morning Tea and Lunch is supplied each day. We will gift you a dinner voucher towards your evening meal in Hahndorf. Being in the beautiful Adelaide Hills and a stones throw from Hahndorf, you could pop into the gorgeous German Arms Hotel for a Cider & a Pretzel or maybe use the delightful onsite restaurant or if you are keen, you can use your kitchenette to whip up a meal!
We left the options up to you.

Can I have a room to myself?
Of course you can for just a little extra.   If you are wanting a cabin all to yourself or are bringing the husband to carry your bags then it will be an additional $180.00.  The cabins are lovely and if you are traveling alone, we will pair you up with someone who is equally as awesome. You wont need to bring linen or towels - just your crafting supplies.

Make pretty things and be crafty!  You are encouraged to create your own projects and enjoy some crafting time!  Closer to the date, we will release the exclusive classes with our super talented Guest Teacher, Niamh Baly from Tasmania. Classes will be an additional cost.

What if I dont know anyone?
Well thats the best way to meet new people! We are all likeminded creatives and Natalie and the team will pair you up on a table with someone who is in the same position as you!

Do I need to bring all my supplies?
No of course not but bring what you need to create with. If you are coming with a friend, chat with them so you dont double up on supplies. There will be an Onsite Scrapbooking Store to tempt you and help you out if you need something. Cash & Credit Card facilities will be available.
