FAQ–Favorite Things Retreat…

Here are some common questions people ask about the retreat.  If this information doesn’t answer your questions, email me at sara (at) knittingprose.com


  1. What is photocrafting?  Photocrafting is a term I use to describe all the ways we preserve and share our pictures.  Sometimes that’s in traditional scrapbooks, but it can also include digital scrapbooks, framed photo art, decorative photo displays, or cards to name a few. 
  2. So what is this retreat about?  Are we scrapbooking?  Yes! And a lot more.  While you may scrapbook the entire time, there will also be opportunities to learn about other scrapbooking styles or photocrafting techniques. 
  3. Do I bring my own photos and supplies to work with?  Yes.  Bring as much as you want to work on, including your computer if you want to work on digital scrapbooks. 
  4. What type of tools will be available for public use?  A variety of trimmers, punches, scissors, and a Cricut will be available for any attendee to use.  There will also be a printer available. 
  5. Will you be teaching classes during the weekend?  Do they cost extra?  I will be teaching some classes during the weekend and they are included in the price of registration.  All supplies for the classes with be provided beyond your basic items such as a trimmer, scissors, tape, etc. 
  6. Where is the retreat located?  We will be staying at Holiday Shores Resort in Osage Beach, MO. 
  7. I hear there’s an outlet mall near there.  Are we allowed to leave the resort to shop during the retreat?  Most definitely.  Never pass up an opportunity to hit the outlet mall! 
  8. Will there be products for purchase at the retreat?  I will have a small amount of things available for purchase, but there is a local scrapbooking store if we need to make a run.  =)
  9. Will we be able to scrap all night if we want?  Yes.  We have 24 hour access to the scrapbooking facility and a key to keep everything locked up securely. 
  10. Are the cottages near the scrapping facility?  The cottages are right next to the event center. 
  11. I want to bring a friend and bunk with her.  How can I be sure we get in the same cottage?  This is easy.  Just list your registered friends’ names on the registration form and every effort will be made to get you all in the same cottage.  While we try really hard to get everyone where they want to be, this is still on a first come/ first served basis, so register early
  12. How many of us can fit in a cottage together?  Each cottage will accommodate 8 guests – 6 on standard double beds and 2 on the sofa sleeper. 
  13. Is alcohol or smoking permitted at the retreat?  Smoking is only allowed outside the facilities.  Smoking inside any of the buildings will result in a $200 fee and you must leave the resort.  This is firm.  While alcohol is permitted, we ask that you please be respectful to your fellow retreat attendees.  Please drink responsibly. 
  14. Can I bring snacks or other food?  You may bring any food or drink you wish.  Meals are included in the registration fee for the event.  Snacks and beverages will also be provided, but you are free to bring your own if you like.
  15. How do I register?  You can download the registration form here.  Print out the form and mail it to the address listed. 
  16. How much does it cost?  What type of payment do you accept?  Personal check is accepted by mail or cash is accepted in person. 
  17. What all does the registration fee include?  Your registration includes two nights stay in a cottage at the resort, all meals and snacks beginning Friday evening, all classes, a Welcome gift bag, 24 hour cropping access, and entry in several giveaways that will take place throughout the weekend.
