Only 5 days until the retreat. We will be making some changes. One of the big ones is YouTube Make & Takes. Make & Takes will be available a couple of ways. You may watch them on YouTube.com, just search Scissors and the City where you will see the 3 daily Make & Takes. This allows you the option to do them at your own table. Of course we will have the make & take area set up as we have in the past if you need assistance.

08/27/2020

Only 5 weeks until the retreat and YES it’s on! Although the retreat might look a little different, we are excited to see everyone and expect to have a good time!
Several changes will be done to lessen the risk from COVID-19 such as
Limiting our participants to allow for increased distances between tables
Eliminated the swap table
Individual candy bags at your table
Prize drawing will be done by Dale or Sandy
Tool center will be a check out so we can clean after each use
Option to do the Make & takes at your table or at the event table
Masks are required in the hotel however while you are seated at your table, we will not require them
Even with these changes by attending the retreat you assume all risks related to the exposure of COVID-19
If you no longer wish to attend the retreat you may transfer to a 2021 retreat. The tentative dates for 2021 are April 16-18 and September 24-26. The cost for next year’s retreat will be $155. Your transfer to next year will be considered payment in full no matter how much you paid this year.
If you would like to cancel your reservation for October, we will issue a refund. To receive a full refund, we must receive your request by Friday, September 5, after which time the standard refund policy will be in effect. Please include your mailing address for a refund and a check will be mailed to you.

We will clean the tools and Cricut Cartridges after each use.

Thank you for a great weekend! The make n Takes were awesome. The prizes were so nice as well. It was nice to meet new friends. Thanks again Sandy and Dale! See you in April! 😁😁
Even though it has been fun to be here at the SATC crop this weekend, it has been bittersweet for me due to some things that have happened to me and my family while I was here. Good news and bad news both, so I have not been very productive. This is the one Halloween that I entered into a contest but someone else one. That is ok. I still won in the main prize drawing and I got to spend a great weekend socializing with all my crafty friends. Thank you to Sandy and Dale for another great retreat. See you at the next one in April 2020!
Fun times.
Bring on the fun. 2019 fall scissors in the city retreat!! Good times on Saturday.
Worked on interactive pages today! It’s always fun to scrapbook grandkid pictures!
This is our make ‘n take. It’s so cute😀
Having a great weekend with friends at the Scissors and the City retreat!
Another one!
Started working on some baby pages. Not shown here: photos, lol!!
A great year at SCISSORS!
Here’s a card I made at the Scissors and the City retreat. And....I won a prize in the big prize drawing. The Foil Quill Kit is coming home with me!! Now I just have to learn how to use it. 😬😉
I am here at the October retreat. This is my 4th time coming. I plan to go to the next one as well. I have met several people at my table and they are very nice! Gosh I love I love it here!
