    Canberra is about 3 hours away from Albury and I am going to ask my Mum tomorrow night when I go back to her place if she can take me. Teddy could sure use it

    I am stunned by the lack of interest by fellow forumers in this thread, just kidding, I can't go either just by looking at the prices... Seems terrific to me lol.

    Belle, it's got nothing to do with lack of interest, most of the members here are not even close to Sydney or Canberra. Not only that, some people will not have a spare couple of hundred bucks to attend something like this, or the time to spare either.

    Yes, I'd love to go, but can neither afford the funds or the time.

    Yeh that is the issue...
    But I am suprised it is not as expensive as some of the other workshops I have looked at. Still, if I didnt have the finational backing of an organisation and the fact that I can use it when I am with clients I probably couldnt consider it.
    Rescue gets a discount which is why I posted it here, thought maybe some of you lovely ladies in sydney could use it
