Autumn Escape 2015 registration is OPEN,
but be quick, this event always sells out months in advance!
Autumn Escape 2015 - Wairakei Thermal Resort, Taupo.
10th - 12th April 2015.
... a totally indulgent weekend at a luxury resort in the heart of the North Island. There isn't much that beats the extravagance of the Wairakei Conference centre in Taupo... that is, unless the weekend is full of scrapbooking, pampering, fun, giveaways and shopping! It's always a weekend of fun, laughter and total indulgence!
Event organisers Jodi Tomlin & Michele Widdows will provide it all, devising plans for a weekend that caters for everyone. Those that want a busy schedule can enjoy a range of amazing classes being taught by popular tutors yet to be announced.
What else can we expect? Make n Takes sponsored by large scrapbooking manufacturers will be available throughout the 3 day event and the demo table often has something going on to inspire your own crafting. Add all this to the extra games, challenges and competitions ... inspiration will never be far away!
(The help-yourself candy buffet is often restocked and always enjoyed by those attending the retreats)
For those that want to sit back and relax a little more, the cropping room is available until midnight on both Friday and Saturday nights. There will be a scrapbooking store to supply new fun products as well as all of the luxury amenities that the Wairakei resort already offers.
(The room is dressed in different themes or colour schemes for each retreat)
How long does this event go for? Autumn Escape is three days long, which means three days of being looked after - full catering from Friday morning, right until lunchtime Sunday, treats and special surprises, it's a weekend of indulgence!
A weekend package for everyone.... You asked for it - we now have full packages for those that want to enjoy the beautiful rooms right at the Wairakei Resort, as well as non-accommodation packages for those that live close-by and even day passes for those that just want to make it for the day. Classes are optional extras, take one, take a few, or take them all - it's up to you and what you want out of the weekend, we are here to design the ultimate scrapbooking experience with you.
Autumn Escape has a top reputation - truly an event unlike any other currently being held in New Zealand. The difference from other events? We are up to the 9th event and we know what makes an event like this successful. What else? The pampering. The freedom to make it what you want. If you want to be busy, they are putting it all out there for you to take advantage of ... if you want to sit back and relax; the chance is there for that also. “We are determined to make it a weekend for YOU. This will be a truly national event designed as a weekend to relax and enjoy your way. Pair that with the inevitable fun and laughter that is created when you get a large group of crafters together and the weekend is certainly going to be a memorable one!”
