Welcome to SENZ

The Expo brings together Scrapbookers, Cake Decorators, Cardmakers,  Mixed Media Artists, Knitters,  Bookmakers, Jewellery makers, Stampers, Quilters... of all ages, for a weekend of creativity, ideas, shopping, displays, socialising, and classes. 

So how about this year you plan to add a hand-made element to your special celebrations? At SENZ we can show you how to make your own invitations and greetings cards; give you ideas on gifts to make such as mixed media canvasses, jewellery, fibre art, quilts or home decor; learn how to decorate an amazing cake; and then we can show you how to preserve those special memories in a Scrapbook  or Mini book.
