A Little about Tattered Inspirations

Tattered Inspirations is a little business which aims to provide products with a vintage heart to use in your crafts - be it scrapbooking, card making or other crafty pursuits.

The Tattered Inspirations shop is here
Tattered Inspirations

Markets - we will keep you informed as we have no idea when we will be able ot go to the Old Bus Depot due to their rennovations. once I know I will pop it here :)

The business is only tiny and is not in any way out to make lots of money but rather to offer products to compliment the usual supplies available by big companies.

The Design Team Rachel Walsh, Belinda Comerford, Kathy Marchant, Daniella Tassone and Suzie Lowe creatively use the products to show people what can be done - and I treasure their input and design work immensly.

Thank you for dropping by, we aim to encourage and inspire you to do something different out of your comfort zone, in new and exciting ways.

2014 Retreats - open now

This year we ran our first successful and totally awesome retreat called the Autumn Escape.
44 lovely ladies from all over Australia joined us (me and the design team) to have fun, classes, workshops, scrapping, competitions and prizes. And the food!!! Oh the food was fabulous - plus we hold it situated in the middle of a beautiful tourist resort with wonderful shops all around!! boutique gift shops, lolly shop, bead shop and..... scrapping shop - plus loads of others. Our scrapping place is a ballroom - used for weddings - so it is pretty special!

Here is what the ladies who attended the Autumn Escape this year said:
  • It was very busy but I enjoyed it all. I loved the fact that I could watch and then do, and have a sample to take home (workshops)
  • (I loved) the atmosphere and general feeling of generosity and sharing
  • Had bucket loads of fun and scrapped! And learnt plenty
  • Workshops are a great way to learn new techniques
  • I loved every minute of the inspiring, tallented and funny ladies
  • Fromt eh beginning to the end it was a visual delight, a creative haven and a breath of fresh air
  • It was welcoming and well structured
  • Very professional and I enjoyed myself very much
  • Best retreat I have been to
When we turned around and offered a retreat again for 2013 it was booked out within a few weeks with 15 on the waiting list.

Sounds great.......How do I get to go???

Just email me on carol@tatteredinspirations.com for a rego form
Your registration form is required to be returned as quickly as you can
Due to the limited places you will only be able to nominate one retreat at this time - there is a space which asks if you are able to come to either just in case your preference is booked out

Once you have been offered a place your $70 non refundable deposit will be required
This is not due until the 31st July 2013. 
If your deposit is not made by this date (it is okay I will remind you both in the newsletter and as a final reminder 2 weeks before it is due) I will offer your place to a person on the waiting list

All payments may be made through direct debit or paypal through my etsy shop (or website once I set it up)
Reminders will be sent from the 1st of the month to the end of the month when it is due
Please note that the $70 deposit is always non refundable
All other payments are refundable if you are unable to come, except in the last 6 weeks prior to the retreat where I will not be able to refund your payments.
A payment plan will be devised and payments can be made regulalry
I do not offer an early bird payment - however I am happy to receive the payments early or in a lump sum if that is the easiest for you
Should you change your mind on starting in the morning for the full retreat I will take changes until 4 months prior to the retreat - after this time the kits are purchased and changes cannot be made - sorry

Newsletter and Facebook Page
Marketing is in full swing and there is lots of information.... I have so much to share - but I will keep it under my hat for now
From August 2013, once all deposits have been received a newsletter will be emailed regularly to keep you informed
In addition you will be invited to a closed facebook group so you can chat with others and also take part in competitions etc

Waiting List
A waiting list for both retreats will be formed should it be necessary

I do hope you will join me and my design team in either of the retreats for 2014.... you certainly will not be dissappointed

With regards
Carol Mead and the DT
Tattered Inspirations
