What is a Crafty You retreat?

Our retreats are time to get away with friends old and new to craft, share ideas, learn new techniques and have a great time doing it!

In between classes guests relax in the Craft Room creating and having fun. There’s snacks, door prizes, raffles, and even a pajama party on Saturday night!

Isn’t that like a crop, aren’t those just for scrapbooking? Nope, people have worked on cards, vinyl projects, iron-ons with our heat press, 3D designs, and yes scrapbooking too. It’s your time and the crafts are up to YOU. Our classes have covered a range of topics and techniques; paper-crafting, multi-media, painting, designing with Inkscape on the computer, coloring techniques, and more!

On top of all that, you also have access to your hosts, George & Ken of Crafts By Two, throughout the retreat for questions and advice.

Craft Room & Availability

Each guest with a full event ticket gets a seat at a 6′ wide table. We do reserved seating and you choose your seat when you purchase your ticket. Making it easy to plan and sit with your friends.

The main Craft Room is always available to event ticket holders from the start of the retreat until the end.

We just ask that the last guest for the night let the front desk staff know to lock the room. If the room isn’t open just have your event badge with you and ask the front desk staff to unlock the room.

Please note, we have a spacious ballroom for our event and the lighting is a diffuse warm glow great for dancing and casual dining. For crafting however you may want to pack a desk lamp with a white light for color matching and detail work.

Epic Swag Bag

Swag bags valued at $200-$300 or more!

Thanks to our generous sponsors every full event ticket holder receives a swag bag filled with craft supplies, gifts, and coupons! You will go home with a lot of craft products to keep learning with and having fun.

We can’t guarantee the value of the swag bag, but past retreats the MSRP value of the swag has been between $200-$300 for each guest!

The full event ticket includes two event classes. There may be additional classes offered by Crafts By Two or guest instructors for à la carte with an additional fee.

For the event classes we will provide the majority of materials needed to participate in the class. The class descriptions will have a Bring heading if anything else is required for you to bring.
