Thank you for visiting the Retreats by Melissa website. My name is Melissa Papke and, twice a year, I host retreats at Apples Bed & Breakfast at Big Bear Lake in the beautiful Southern California mountains. Whether you are a scrapbooker, quilter, jewelry maker or some other type of crafter, you are welcome to join us! My retreats are always held in May over Mother’s Day weekend and again in October on the third weekend of the month that includes a Friday. Have a look around the site to learn more and then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to join the fun!
