going to the April Scissors and the City retreat? I thought I might drive over from NM (!) but don't know a soul...thought maybe meeting up with a pea or two might be fun!

Interesting. Never heard of it. Is it new? Cool that it is in town since we no longer have any scrapbook stores.

Scissors and the City has been hosting retreats in Tucson for about 5 years. Started at the Hampton on the north side near Pages and Progress (REALLY MISS THEM) and now have moved to the Garden Inn by the airport.

We would love to have you join us. We have serveral ladies that come by themselves. You may not know anyone there now but trust me you will leave with many new friends.

I will talk with the dh tonight at dinner and make sure there are no objections to my going. He occasionally works out of town so I have to make sure he hasn't committed himself yet to that weekend.

Anyone else??

Wow! 5-years? I wonder why they never advertised in the local scrapbook stores?

We advertised in Pages in Progress when they were open as well as the store down in Green Valley. We also advertise in a store in Mesa/Gilbert called the Scrapbook Barn. Many stores hold day crops on the weekends so we end up being competition for them... thus advertising in the stores can be challenging.

2013 will we our 6th year doing retreats. If you haven't already, I would suggest you check out some of the pictures of past retreats on the Scissors and the City Facebook page (here).

Scubascrapper, our retreats normally draw about 60% (or more) of the women from the Phoenix area. It's fun to get away and have a crafty weekend! We actually live in the Phoenix area but enjoy hosting our retreats in Tucson for that reason.

I'm flying in from Oregon to attend with a few pea friends (ScubaScrapper, JoyNewYork, jgpea? and one other)... super excited to visit AZ for the first time!


My husband said it was him or scrapbooking... so I took pictures of him packing and made the cutest page ever!

I got a pile of scrapbook supplies for my husband. It was the best trade I ever made!

I finally signed up! I put Scubascrapper's group and Yanica to sit with. Now I just gotta get a hotel reservation. When I called this morning they did not have the group discount information available; the clerk blamed it on the early hour (6:30 a.m.); will call back later today.

Anyone need to share a hotel room?

We called and spoke to the hotel, they have the room block and have been accepting reservations but the 3rd shift was unaware. Sorry for the inconvenience and having to call twice.

Oh Wow, so many peas are going. I have never met any of you but I have been in SWAPs with Beckyrn97 and some of the others. I need to look at the family schedule and maybe it is do-able for me. I haven't been to a retreat in years and I live so close, well a couple of hours isn't bad.

Thanks

Hi Becky, I sent an email confirming the names that are seated together right now. Our list still shows just 6 peas (that we know of) sitting together. I dont want to post anyone's personal info (real names) on here in case it would bother anyone, so if other peas are wondering who is seated together please email us! info@scissorsandthecity.com

(Sorry for the delay in responding to this thread... we were busy buying goodies for everyone at CHA)
