Terms and Conditions.
Workshops must be booked and paid for in advance in full.  Bookings are not confirmed until payment is received and a booking will only be held for 48 hours without payment before being released as available. You can pay in store, online or over the phone. 
Cancellation Policy
Cancellations received with 48 hours notice of the workshop will be eligible for a 50% refund.  Unfortunately cancellations received within 48 hours do not allow time to refill that place and so no refund can be issued.  If we have to cancel, we will provide as much notice as possible and you will be entitled to a full refund or to move to a vacant space on an alternative same value workshop of your choice.

Crafting Clubs run in Norfolk - Attleborough
We run a monthly crafting club in Attleborough, Norfolk.  The entry fee is £3.50 on the night and they give you a chance to meet up with other crafters and share ideas, techniques & chat! It doesn't matter whether your craft is papercrafting, jewellery or beading - or something else - everyone is welcome. The mobile shop is always present - and if you haven't got time to join us for the evening - pop in and have a shop (if you are shopping only - no entry fee applies!).  No need to book a place - just come along on the night!  Check on our home page for any late changes to dates or venues - particularly in wintery weather!  Club night starts at 6.15 and finishes at 8.30pm, but you can come along any time in between start & finish and stay as long or short as suits you!  We have demonstrations and mini workshops (a small extra charge to participate in mini workshops)!
