ok i have looked at a map as you all know and i have decided that coventry is probably about the best place for everyone . The way i made that decision is placing the most regular users names on the map and then finding a place thats central to all those names .My calculations say coventry is about right as from 20 names i used 6 were coming north , 6 south and 6 from left or right . The other 2 dont know where they will be at the time of the retreat , well they have a good idea but its not set in stone yet . (lynda and tina ). So what i need to know now is how many of you would be inetersted in a retreat for a weekend ,very similar to the one we had in nottingham , and im working on a similar price ,im trying my best with a deal for room and food .The meeting rooms i have yet sort out a price til i know how many are coming, roughly . Nothing is set in stone yet as i need names of people who may be interested .
still lots to sort out but we will make a start here by collecting names and a bit of info about the weekendi will do it in stages as i think of things i need to know .
So , firstly , are you interested ?
secondly , what do you think to April 2010 is it good for you ?

Depends very much on price, and how things go in Wales; but I love the idea of coming along. (If it's on 9th April I won't be allowed though!)

Realised afterwards, I couldn't make the weekend of 10/11 April. Steve reaches the big six-O on the 10th, so we'll probably be doing some celebrating (a weekend away in Yorkshire sounds nice).

Yes please, I'm in the same planning stage for a retreat with faithscrappers, but we're hoping for end of March with that one, so fingers crossed. I can't wait to meet more of you.

I'm sure I can pick you up on the way past if I am allowed to come Steph. That way you can navigate, 'cos I haven't the foggiest where Coventry is Laughing

i say yes as long as it's not the end of the month. the 29th is my 10th anniversary so dh may plan something for that weekend.

tina and i would be able to travel together (if she doesn't mind of course) since she'll be living a mile or so away from me.

i'm saying yes but it depends on finances here as well. since dh is self-employed it depneds on how things are going with pc doctor business.

Matthew goes back to college on 12th April so Easter must be earlyish next year so late April should avoid school holidays plus the likes of the M6 will be less horrendous. For me it is down to cost as I have a retreat booked for March and finances are a bit all over the place at the moment although Matthew's student loan stuff has come through so I might be one of the last to say yes

oh wow , this is a surprise to wake up to this morning ,i fully expected to come and find lots of " oooh weel i might have to be doing this that or the others etcetc " wow thats so encouraging thanks ladies i have written down all your comments about checking easter and school holidays etc so will work on that next .

prices........... i am going to try to keep it as low as i posiibly can do ,the more the merrier so they say cos we can split the cost of the meeting rooms between more folks .
I think i will put each question i have to ask you in its own seperate thread so i can find anything i need to again at a later date .
we have 15 names possibly coming along allready and the meeting room in the premier inn is only suitable for 15 for 1 room and 30 when the dividers are moved

mmmm i know !!!!! im hoping that we can just use the 2 rooms anyway cos its double the price for the dividers down , but im hoping they feel good and let us use the 2 for the price of 1 .
only thing is we will not have a seperate room for any workshops ( if we do any ) might just get a little corner ,or just do a crafting weekend with no workshops ...mmmmmm what to do what to do .

I don't mind either 'just crafting' or 'classes'; it's the getting together bit I am looking forward to.

We could always set some informal challenges to get us doing the same sort of thing and get a few bits on the wall to show each other?

easter 2010 is april 4th
school holidays are 29 march to 9th april . so it look slike april 16th is likely date

You need to check if picking me up is viable to you and not too
far out of your way. It would be fab if you could.
I was thinking about one of my men taking me and then collecting me
but if not too awkward that would be great. If you go back on
this thead you can see the map as to where Coventry is to where you
will be.

I see what you mean; you're not on the way; but it's not impossible.

Coventry is 4 hours from Pembroke Dock (but then so is the rest of civilisation!). Going via Oxford adds another hour.

If it means the difference between you going and not going to the Retreat, then I'll come and get you! (Assuming I'm allowed to come to the retreat; but there's an awful lot of whinge-time between now and April!).

Don't worry about it at the moment Tina. That's a big journey for you.
I haven't even mentioned the weekend to anyone here but I'm sure
Jason (MS) would take me. He drives to Heathrow to work everyday so the
driving side wouldn't bother him.

You can put me down for this depending on health and if OS will drive me there and back, which I think he will, don't know where Coventry is comparing tome and you Steph but if its on the way we could pick you up if you have no transport, challenges sound great.

I think with how close we are that classes are a bit on the formal side & also it puts pressure on the people who have to hold the classes so they dont get a chance to have a play, Lou did an excellent job last year but I'm sure she was run ragged by the end!

Maybe we pick some subjects, pool our resources & spend a couple of hours doing a bit of this & that. Like the bind-it-all was fun, but rather than a class, just sit around & make some books/hangy things together.

Also like the idea of the challenges, I had fun doing the ones Helen set out last year.

I think what we want is too spend a weekend just having a good ol' natter while doing what we like best which is crafting Mr Green

Our school breaks up on Thurs 1st April and goes back on 19th April. So 16th might be good for me getting there on time.
I'll be happy to do any sort of crafting. I'd like to see what people do with alcohol inks as that area is still a bit of a mystery to me, I've just had a go on domino's. Also any hints on taking pics and working digitally would be great, but I think you might have done that last time perhaps.
Getting together would just be great, and crafting of any sort.
