(Mods, if this isn't allowed, please delete!)

Hello ladies!  I just wanted to give a little shout out to a crafting retreat I went to over the weekend.  I have no affiliation/stake in this place, but in these tough times, I would imagine that it's tough for her to drum up enough business to stay open, and since I enjoyed my stay so much, I thought I would do my part to help!   Cheesy

A Little Bit of Scrap is a craft retreat in Grantsburg, Wisconsin.  It's (obviously) geared towards scrappers, but welcomes people of any crafty persuasion!  In our seven member group, we crocheted, knitted, spun, made paper, did poly clay, resin, and sewing/quilting. 

The owner pays a lot of attention to detail, and there was quite a lot of space for us to spread out.  A large kitchen with lots of amenities, a comfortable living room with a lot of movies.  (Many girly ones, perfect for post-crafting vegging!)  Free wireless internet, and Select Comfort mattresses to boot!  Not to mention a nice selection of Sizzix dies and a Sizzix available for use!

The location is very quiet serene, but not too far out of town to make the occasional trip to a grocery store or convenience store out of the question.  It accommodates up to 10 people, which makes a three day weekend really affordable even now.

If you're looking for a weekend crafting experience, and want to get a little ways out of town, I highly recommend it.  (panul, PinFish, and GrammaBiskit heartily agree as well!)
