crops, free crops, in store retreat, scrapbook crops


Sadly this week we were informed that Frederick Marsden Youth Centre at Kallangur where we hold our retreats has not survived the financial fall out of COVID restrictions and has permanently closed it doors at this stage.

Given we have such a large space available for our classroom, we have decided to run an in store crop on the same weekend to allow people who have made plans to join us to still do so for at least a couple of days.

Everyone registered for our May and August retreats has now been contacted and offered priority placing at our in store retreat.

We will set another date for further in store retreats so if you have missed out please leave your name with us for the next available dates.


Cost: $45.00 per person

You will be provided with a full trestle table each to ensure safe distancing and extra cleaning measures are in place before and after the event.

All day tea and coffee, morning tea, afternoon tea, lunch and dinner are included along with a welcome gift and lucky door ticket for a great prize pack.
