Event Details

Hello Friends!

Early-bird registration is now open for all early 2018 retreats! 

All prices jump by $10 after September 1st!

Come join us in early 2018 for some focused time away to work on your favorite projects!

Happy Valley Conference Center, nestled between Santa Cruz and Scotts Valley, is the perfect destination for you to do the things YOU love to do!  There is NO agenda for the weekend except for YOUR agenda!  The food is fantastic, the setting serene, and the focused time away, invaluable! Come scrapbook, stamp, sew, knit, paint... Whatever makes your heart happy! Check out this YouTube video for a glimpse into your weekend esacpe!  (

The basic retreat is Friday at 3pm-Sunday at 3pm and costs $235*.  You can add an early Friday arrival option for $25 (which includes 9am arrival and lunch on Friday), or a Thursday night option for $65 (which includes lodging on Thursday night, as well as breakfast and lunch on Friday). 

Your retreat cost includes all meals (starting with dinner Friday, unless you have chosen an early-arrival option), accommodations in rooms that sleep 2-4** guests, and a full 6' table for executing your craft.  Check out for more info on this great venue!

Your minimal on-line deposit of $25 here on Eventbrite is NON-REFUNDABLE***, but will be applied to the final cost of your retreat. Once you have registered, I will send you an invoice with your final bill and detailed info on how to make your final payment.  Final payments will be due by December 1, 2017.  Feel free to make payments of smaller amounts between now and then, if that is helpful.  

CANCELLATION POLICY: NO refunds of deposits will be given.*** Once your payment has been made in full, you can receive a FULL refund (minus the $25 deposit) up until one month prior to retreat, a 50% refund until two weeks prior to the retreat, and no refunds can be given within two weeks of the retreat start date.  

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions! Hope to see you ext year!!

* The city of Santa Cruz is implementing a new housing tax for conference centers like Happy Valley. They do not know yet when or if this will impact our retreats, but it may mean a neceessary $5/night tax, strating as early as January 2018. If this is the case, weekend prices will adjust accordingly, and invoices will reflect the housing tax. If the tax is implemented causing you to be unable to attend, I will offer a refund of your deposit, due to these circumstances. I am crossing my fingers that this will not impact us right away, so am keeping rates as low as I am able for now (with a $5 increase based on Happy Valley's new pricing for 2018). 

**Single rooms are available at an additional cost of $25/night.

*** If the new Santa Cruz city tax code affects our Happy Valley pricing and makes the retreat cost prohibitive for you, I will offer a refund of your deposit if canceled within two weeks of being notified of the price increase.
