Countdown to Christmas

So much news to share ….

 Firstly, you will be pleased to know that the upgrade of the workshop is now complete. We have re-organised the space, added some additional storage, and sorted through all shelving to declutter. Most importantly, the old raised platform on the floor is now gone which we hope will improve your experience when with us. The Gaz heater has been checked and in working order ready for the winter weather to ensure we all stay warm and toasty during classes.

The workroom has been labelled so you can easily find what you are looking for during classes. But let us know if you feel we could improve your crafting experience as we want you to have an enjoyable and relaxing time at The Warren.

We have lots of new and nearly new supplies, stamps, ink pads, tools and more for sale, so get in quick as we are taking much of it to Thaxted Craft Fair Saturday 19th October. Come and join us for a great day and pick up some crafting bargains to boot. 

Our new season Christmas and Halloween cards will be on sale too.  


We are now accepting Orders for our Handmade  Halloween and Christmas Cards & gift ideas.

Introduction to My Digital Studio Laptop sessons

MDS Holiday Ornaments Card
MDS Merry Little Christmas Card
Did you know that you can get one months free trail download of My Digital Studio? Well you can. If you are wondering what role an electronic card and scrapbooking digital programme has in today’s world? Well the answer is lots! I use it for most of my class preparations, none of the digital stamps are retired, and you can resize your stamps, punches etc to the size for your project, which you cannot do with the real thing! If I still haven’t sold it, then book a taster session with us, and download the programme on a free 30 day trial basis just before your leson, and you can bring along your tablet or laptop and play with me in real time … I am even considering running ‘virtual’ MDS workshops in the new year so you do not have to come to me, but we communicate via the internet instead! You can read more about MDS at the My Digital Studio Website


Stamp Clubs

Our new stamp clubs run on a monthly basis and require a commitment from you to place a minimum order from the current Annual or Seasonal Stampin Up catalogue each month. The amount you commit to depends on the amount of months you wish to commit to. Our commitment to these classes is to demonstrate a wide range of cardcraft techniques, products, supporting you as individuals and as a group, allow you to work at your own pace, and most of all, help you to have FUN and hopefully leave us feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Stampin Club 5
The club runs over 5 months with a maximum of 5 places. Each attendee will be allocated a month where they are the designated Hostess when they join the club, so you, or your club/group gain from the Hostess Benefits.  Each attendee commits to order a minimum of £25.00 of products from the current Stampin Up catalogues each month whether or not you are able to attend class.

Stampin Club 7
The club runs over 7 months with a maximum of 6 places. Each attendee will be allocated a month where they are the designated Hostess when they join the club, so you, or your club/group gain from the Hostess Benefits. The Hostess of the 7th Month will be the result of a raffle at the end of the final session. Each attendee commits to order a minimum of £18.00 of products from the current Stampin Up catalogues each month whether or not you are able to attend class.

Stampin Club 10
The club runs over 10 months with a maximum of 5 places.

memory keeper & memory Maker 

scrapin classes

These classes are very close to our hearts. They are aimed at helping to create or keep memories through scrapbooking when life gets tough. The Memory Maker classes are aimed at individuals living with life limiting conditions to make memories, creating a lasting legacy for their family and friends, and for themselves when the going gets extra tough.

Memory Keeper scrapbookin classes are aimed at the bereaved, allowing individuals to keep the memories of their loved ones alive through scrapbooks. It is a therapeutic, if emotional way, of documenting the life of their loved one. Our quiet semi-rural surroundings allow you to work at your own pace, and if needed, take time out, in a supportive environment. These sessions are run on an ad hoc basis to try and fit in around treatments, appointments, lethargy, etc. We are happy to work with small family/friend groups (up to 6 people), or on a one to one basis. £10 per session. If you are experiencing financial hardship, please talk to us to see if we can subsidise your sessions.
