If you can fill your spot with another guest, you may arrange between yourself and that person for the exchange of the money. 


Cancellations MUST be received in writing either by e-mail or mailed. Due to the large number of events, we conduct yearly, we do not accept phone calls, text or FB messages as cancellations.  The date we receive the written cancellation is the actual cancellation date.


We reserve the right to cancel a Weekend Scrapbook Retreat if there is not a minimum of 10 people.  If that happens, we will offer you an alternate date within a year of the original retreat date or refund your money.


2021 Cancellation Policy COVID-19 Addendum: After the declaration of COVID-19 as a global pandemic by the World Health Organization in March 2020, we must adhere to our standard cancellation policy. After March 2020, COVID-19 and its consequences are no longer unforeseen or unexpected. By registering for our events, post COVID-19, the risk of contracting the virus is likely possible. Our capacity for our Weekend Events has been greatly reduced due to the pandemic and we are doing our best to keep our small business open. When we accept registrations for our weekends, fill our events due to the limited capacity enforced upon us and/or close our registration to additional participants, we rely on your attendance to fulfill our monthly rental expenses. While we understand these are unprecedented times, as a struggling business we have had to continually adjust our business strategies. While the repercussions of COVID-19 have been unprecedented to both our personal & business relations, we understand and are sympathetic to all the cancellations that we receive, even more often now due to various reasons, but unfortunately, if we are to continue to offer our events, we must be consistent in our cancellation policy. As always, ANY cancellation prior to our events are NON-REFUNDABLE, no store credits or refunds will be offered. 


*2021 COVID-19 Addendum Offer:  With that said we value you as a client and every day we are doing our best during this ever-changing unprecedented time to stay open. We can offer this temporary COVID-19 driven adjustment to our cancellation policy.  If you cancel under the 2 weeks prior to our event in email form prior to the event start date, with an included documentation copy of a positive result for you or an immediate family member, dated within 2 weeks of our scheduled event, we will offer the following option. If an upcoming scheduled weekend event has openings one week prior to the start date, we can offer to you a COVID-19 replacement event with an additional management fee of $15.00. You would have to check in with us, via email, the Monday prior to the scheduled date to confirm availability and confirm your replacement offer. This is a temporary COVID-19 adjustment to our policy and subject to change. We dislike all these new challenges as much as you and are trying our best to continue to offer you the opportunity to visit with us while still trying to keep our business afloat.
