The Shabbi Shack

Craft Retreat

Crop Room Home

The Shabbi Shack Craft Retreat opened in June of 2009 and is located in a beautiful old home just north of the Kansas River in Topeka, Kansas. It has three spacious rooms set up for Scrapbooking, Card Making, Quilting or any other crafty endeavor that you enjoy.

For those wanting to get away from it all, the house is set up for weekend guests, with 2 sleeping rooms that accomodate 8 overnight guests, a craft supply store, 1 1/2 baths, a full kitchen and lovely wrap around porch to relax and enjoy the Kansas sunsets.

Each Cropper has use of a 4’ table, Making Memories Cutting Mat and Scrap-Ma-Bob trash container & drink holder. 

You’ll enjoy Bottomless Snacks and Drinks while you work as well as access to the thousands of die cuts, punches and tools we have to offer – which we could not possibly list in this space, but here’s just a few:

A Computer Journaling Station with printer and photo printer, 3 Cricut Electronic Cutters (2 Expressions) with over 50 cartridges, Design Studio and "other" Software for cutting custom die cuts, Slice Design Cutter with over 20 cartridges, a Big Shot, Vagabond, Quickutz, along with multiple dies, alphabets and texture plates.

We also have over 100 punches, Crop-a-dile's, I-Top brad maker, Stamps, Inks, Chalks, Color Pencils, Markers, hundreds of magazines and idea books and a Copic Certified Instructor who also happens to be a retired Art Teacher and self proclaimed gadget junkie at your service!

The Shabbi Shack is an organized, clean, spacious, simply beautiful place to get away with your friends while still being close to dining and shopping in the city of Topeka. But if you choose to book a weekend with a meal package, you'll indulge in delicious cinnamon rolls, hearty soups, casseroles or pasta dishes, as well as a variety of fruit, veggies, yogurt and of course - chocolate!

Please join us for a weekend of pampering, creativity and sheer bliss!
