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

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!

Sadly this week we were informed that Frederick Marsden Youth Centre at Kallangur where we hold our retreats has not survived the financial fall out of COVID restrictions and has permanently closed it doors at this stage.

Given we have such a large space available for our classroom, we have decided to run an in store crop on the same weekend to allow people who have made plans to join us to still do so for at least a couple of days.

Everyone registered for our May and August retreats has now been contacted and offered priority placing at our in store retreat.

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.


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.

All day tea and coffee, morning tea, afternoon tea, lunch and dinner are included along with a welcome gift and lucky door ticket for a great prize pack.

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
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.


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.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported this wonderful shop over the past few months and now slowly we can start looking forward to getting back to some kind of normality. 

We are happy to announce that as from 1st July,
we will be resuming additional activities at APTC.
Careful consideration was made in conjunction with the
current guidelines on how we, as a business,
can practically ensure everyone can feel confident that they
will be in a safe environment.

Obviously we will all take responsibility to continue the social distancing rules, hygiene will be of paramount importance and if you are feeling unwell the advice is to stay at home

Together Queenslanders have slowed the spread of COVID-19
by staying at home. 

As a result, the Queensland Government will continue to ease restrictions on movement within Queensland.

As you may be aware as from the 12th June, Stage 2 commences which means the restrictions will be lifted to include a gathering of up to 20 people - this number will include any staff on the premises.

Stage 3 starts on the 10th July where there can be gatherings of up to 100 people - subject to review.

All the teachers have been consulted and are happy to resume classes in store from this date. We will provide dates of classes etc in the July calendar which will be posted on Facebook and the Blog in the next couple of weeks.

With regard to the August retreat,
we will be visiting the premises next week to ascertain
the numbers that can be safely accommodated and in particular
assessing the overnight accommodation options.
We will communicate the way forward regarding this in the next few weeks.

With this in mind and to ensure we are adhering to the guidelines,
please may we we ask that for any classes you would like to attend
 that you please book in advance and at that point we would take payment to secure your place. 

Should numbers exceed the recommended guidelines,
you will be advised and ongoing discussions with the teachers
concerned will enable us to make decisions about holding extra classes
when and if possible. 

For all those who have already booked and paid for Melissa Struhs' classes,
we will be contacting you all over the next few weeks to confirm attendance.

Free Crops will resume on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9am to 3pm and we will have dates for the Saturday crops included in the July calendar. 

Thank you for your patience with regard to us making this decision and before you know it, you will be catching up and crafting together.........

Warmest wishes to you all and keep an eye out for weekly updates.
