Calling all Stampers!!

Are you looking for a way to chase those winter blahs away?  Would you enjoy a fun night away from the hustle and bustle of life?  Have an interest in learning new stamping techniques? Need a fun weekend away with the girls?  

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then pack your bags and join us for the Stamp New England 2009!!

Teaming with prominent crafters and stamp companies, we've developed an event that is engineered for fun, learning, connecting and relaxing.  This year's retreat, held in Portsmouth, NH, will showcase products from industry leaders such as Gina K. Designs, Papertrey Ink, and Scor-Pal, to name a few, and will feature guest designers, well known for their creativity and stamping.

During your stay, you'll have the opportunity to attend five stamping tutorials geared towards enjoying the art of creating with stamps, learning new techniques, sampling favorite products and connecting with old friends while making new ones.

The day and a half event will be held at The Sise Inn, located in beautiful Portsmouth, NH.  
The Sise Inn is one of the finest hotels in Portsmouth, reigning over Haymarket Square.  This lovely 19th century Queen Anne home showcases original woodwork, elegant antiques and period reproductsion to recall the graciousness of Victorian life.  The Inn  offers comfortable guest rooms decordated in period style as well as free Wi-Fi and many other comfort amenities.  

We look forward to seeing you at Stamp New England!
