We are closing our doors.....but

How to begin, I really don't know. So I will just begin this post....

Scrappin' Patch is closing as of 28 February 2014. This has not been an easy decision, and I feel a great sadness as I will miss the daily contact with my customers, both instore and online, my involvement with the industry will change, and I won't get to unpack all the gorgeous product as it arrives, or be privvy to so much of what is happening in the scrapbooking world. Scrappin' Patch has been a huge part of my everyday life for the last 6.5+ years and closing it will leave a big gap.
At the same time I have great peace with this decision. As many of you know I am a Christian, my relationship with Jesus is the most important one to me, and so I have prayed about this for some time and know that God is calling me to a new path in life. It is the right decision for my own wellbeing, for my phsically struggling husband, my children and children-in-law, and grandchildren - these precious people are the most important to me and are worth any sacrifice to me - and to begin the next path in my life.

The retreat will definitely go ahead, and I will still bring the shop there as planned but it will be different. The shop will be there, lots of gorgeous product will be available to purchase as it would have been if I continued as now. And future retreats – I love them, organising, running, spending a weekend scrapping – a decision on these will be made soon.

I am in discussion with a possible purchaser so while this is the end of Scrappin' Patch as you have known it for 6.5 years, it may be the beginning of a new Scrappin' Patch under the ownership of a new person.

There is no way to thank, sufficiently, all those who have been involved in various ways over the years, my wonderful design team members over the years, customers who have helped in various ways, and all who have chosen to support me by purchasing from Scrappin' Patch. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!!!!


Our physical store will be open this Saturday, 22 February, from 10 - 3pm - 3/710 East Maddisons Road, Rolleston. 
Pop in so that I can say goodbye to you personally, and give you a hug if you would like one , and just say THANKS!!!
Plenty of bargains - cardstock, papers, embellishments...... Please SHARE so that others can grab a bargain too!! Nibbles and tea/coffee will be available too.
