I am thrilled to announce that as of 20 March 2014 Scrappin' Patch will be
owned by Glen & Susan Pincock from Upper Hutt, Wellington. I am confident
that you will support the new owners in the same way you have supported me over
the years, and look forward to seeing the Patch continue on. Once again, thank
you all for your wonderful support.
I plan to continue to organise and
run annual Retreats, regular monthly 'Shed Days' and perhaps 'Shed Nights' in
the shed for cropping and cardmaking (likely to be on Fridays or Saturdays), and
perhaps other craft days too. The shed is also available to rent, at a cheap
cost, to groups who would like to use it for a crop or other event. Information
about the cost can be obtained by emailing me. My email address will
change as of the 20 March as the scrappinpatch email addresses will no longer
come to me, they will go to Glen & Susan. So to be kept
informed about Retreats, Shed Days, or to make contact
for booking the shed for your own event please note that my,
Adrienne's, email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will not be able to reach me on the scrappinpatch email addresses from next
And just maybe, I may also have other things up my sleeve in the way of
crafting!!! You can also keep up to date with me on Facebook, if you would like
to - just search my name. And the retreat blog will continue www.scrappinpatchretreats.blogspot.com and may also
be used for announcements of events, crop days, etc.
CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP
Orders can be placed on the website
with Adrienne until Saturday 15 March, after which time the website will be
closed and will reopen on 23 March with Glen & Susan.
From Glen & Susan
We are a married couple based in Upper Hutt -
Wellington who, when we saw that Scrappin' patch was going to close we saw an
amazing chance to keep this fantastic shop and service alive and give us a new
project, business, and opportunity. So we went down and met with Adrienne and
she accepted our purchase offer. We are very excited and a little nervous as we
know we have huge shoes to fill. We plan to collect the stock on Thursday 20
March and then transport it back to Wellington to reopen the website on Monday
23rd March. We do apologise for any inconvenience and orders may be a little
slower for the first week or so as we learn all the new stock and systems. Once
we have the website back up and running we will have more about us and we have
lots of ideas and plans but want to provide you with a fantastic fast service.
We look forward to helping you. Happy Scrappin Susie & Glen Pincock.
So the future of the Patch is in good hands and is set to continue into the
future. And for that I am very grateful. I wish Glen & Susan every success
as they embark on this new adventure!
