ROAD TRIP TO TOOWOOMBA


Next Sunday, Karenina and Sharon will be taking A Place to Create on a road trip to Toowoomba so that the local crafters can experience shopping without having to drive for hours to access a great range of products.

We went one Sunday last year and it was so well received, we are doing it again.

4 fabulous stores have teamed up to bring crafting alive in Toowoomba again with a day of fabulous shopping opportunities at the Show grounds.

If you know anyone local to Toowoomba or happy to pop into Toowoomba for a shopping spree, please spread the word.

Thanks in advance.

WE HAVE A NEW RETREAT VENUE FOR NOVEMBER 2020



We are so excited to announce we have found a

NEW RETREAT VENUE

- a fabulous waterside one with twin share bedrooms complete with
private ensuites, heating, air conditioning, ceiling fans, mini fridge and linen provided
on the beautiful Maroochy River....... better still, we have secured a date this year.

Friday 27th November to Sunday 29th November.

So the big question is who wants to come????

The cost is $350.00 / person and if you really want to sleep alone, you can pay an extra $45.00 and have the room all to yourself.

Is this not the best news you've had this week????

This year????

Let's not wait for 2021 to start making new memories.

Let's show 2020 how crafters make the most of every opportunity!!!

Please call or email the store tomorrow to register your interest.

3851 2200 or info@aplacetocreate.com.au









We hope you can all join us!!!
We are so excited to host a getaway this year to wrap up a very surreal and 

Monday, 29 June 2020



Can you believe half the year is gone already?

It's all been a bit surreal but we have all done really well to keep ourselves and each other safe in Australia and hope we can continue to be mindful and safe as we resume activities.

Tomorrow sees us reopen our classroom and we are beyond excited.

The calendar is packed for July and we also have visiting businesses like Stella and Dash visiting with their first in store ear ring making class on Monday 27th July also.  All bookings are direct through Stella and Dash so it's not on the calendar but we would love to see you enjoy yourself at this class also.

We popped Suzie in for two days - a Saturday and Sunday to help get over how long it's been since we did mixed media with her.  Beginners are welcome to attend her classes as the class is slow paced with demonstrations and then creative times staggered.

Remember our Wednesday scrap and chats are FREE 10am - 3pm however we must have bookings for these as we manage numbers and undertake the necessary arrangements for cleaning and spacing.

We would presume it goes without saying now that if you are displaying any cold or flu like symptoms, high temperatures or sore throat, that you stay home and seek medical advice before returning to social activities.

Please do not attempt to attend classes if you are unwell as we will have to ask you to leave for the comfort and safety of everyone.  Many thanks in advance for your co-operation as we work through this unprecedented event and reopening of the classroom.



Hope to see you in store soon!

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.


IN STORE CROP ~ SATURDAY 27TH JUNE ~ 9AM - 9PM

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.

NEW TRADING HOURS

Hi everyone, 

As things start to resume some sense of normality in our lives, we have planned our July class schedule and it is already jam packed. 

Adding in two extra Sunday trading days in July has allowed us to bring you even more exciting classes too.

The Doozey Chicks are returning on Tuesday 30th June, we let them sneak in a day early since they're so keen to get back!

Free Scrap and Chat sessions return on Wednesdays and Thursdays for now
and Sharon returns to card making classes Friday mornings and one Saturday class.

Mel will be back on the first and third Saturday of each month with all her fabulous scrapbook class options
and
Suzie will be exciting us with not one but two mixed media classes in July to kick off the excitement.
And as if that's not enough, the fabulous and fun Yvette will be rejoining us for a fun packed Sunday with a card making class in the morning and a layout class in the afternoon. We are yet to confirm if this layout class can again be done as cards during the class but we will be sure to let you know once Yvette lets us know.


CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO MAKE IT LARGER

We are still exercising social distancing measures and we have the classroom set up to ensure you have your own table at this stage and it is adequately spaced from the surrounding tables. Along with all our other routine cleaning procedures in place now, 
the room will be cleaned before and after class and sanitiser is still being provided upon entry to the shop to help keep all items safe inside.

Please help us keep everyone safe by helping to follow the guidelines.
