Nashville Craft Retreat 2022 was an awesome card making retreat created by a crafter for crafters. Focus on techniques with amazing support. I can’t wait for 2023. Oh, and the most awesome sponsors!

Great Retreat with a fabulous host and great instructors. Finished plenty of items which is normally unusual for me. I was taken out of my comfort zone to try new things. Lots of different projects for everyone. Met up with friends and also met new ones. Will definitely be going back again next year.

Nashville Craft retreat 2022 was my first event for card making. I enjoyed it a lot and learned so many things I can apply now for my cards. Thanks again the whole team for making this so unforgettable!

Nashville Craft Retreat was a treat indeed. As a stamper for over 25 years, I was able to learn new techniques that I have not tried or have been wanting to try. I loved that the retreat was not centered on how many cards you make but focused on learning techniques to enhance your card making. Can’t wait for the next one!

The 2022 Nashville Craft Retreat was truly outstanding! The hostess and all of the instructors are top notch. I love the cards that we made, and really enjoyed the techniques that we learned. The gifts we received were amazing as well. I hope to make it to the next one.

The 2022 Nashville Craft Retreat was outstanding! It was the first year for this extravaganza and I must say, it went off fantastically. There were so many different types of techniques taught and shared. I loved being pushed out of my boring comfort zone. Now after having come home, for the first time, I have actually taken what I learned and used it in my day to day crafting! Can’t recommend this event enough and can’t wait for next year!
