Very sad email arrived today........

So thought I would share it with you all, it's the end of an era for ScrapaGoGo as a kit club, but I fully understand the reasons for it's demise!
However, knowing Lorraine & Janice personally, I know that when they say there is more stuff in the pipeline regarding their tour dates & Retreats, that there will be things to still enjoy & look forward too in the future...
Here is the email that explains what has forced their hand in making the decision to cease trading... I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lorraine & Janice for allowing me the privilege of being part of their amazing Design Team & encouraging me in my craft journey.
I wish them all the best for the future & I will be eagerly waiting news on future events

Dear Valued Essentially GoGo Kit Member,

It is with the deepest regret we have to inform you that Essentially GoGo Kits, therefore also ScrapaGoGo, will be ceasing trading from April 2013 Kit. The decision of Royal Mail to increase prices dramatically from April is going to have a very negative impact on our service and goods and has ultimately pushed us to this decision. 

At present your Essentially GoGo Kit is sent '2nd class PPI Packet Daily' rate at a cost of £2.02 per kit, from April this will fall under the 'Medium Parcel upto 1kg' rate and we will be charged £5.60 per kit. With the postage cost within the cost of your subscription it is clear that we can not absorb this £3.58. In turn we feel that we do not wish to supply fewer products to compensate for this difference (which would equate to an alphabet along the lines of Thickers etc) therefore having a detrimental affect on creating a great array of items in kit form as we offer at present.

What Do You Need To Do Now?

April 2013 Kit will be the last in your subscription, therefore any Standing Order or Paypal reoccuring payment you have will need to be stopped AFTER this payment has left your account (March payment). If you are unsure of the date your invoice is raised for April Kit then simply log on and look at your account on the Kit Management Suite to confirm. It is paramount that no overpayments are made or continued after this payment.

As a thank you for your valued custom and loyalty we will be sending two additional brand new and exclusive GoGo Stamps in with your April Kit.

We wish to reassure you that GoGo Getaway is not affected in any shape or form with the closing of ScrapaGoGo and exciting news for future events will be announced shortly. Once again we would like to express out gratitude for choosing ScrapaGoGo as your Kit Club and look forward to sharing our exciting new regarding GoGo Getaway Ltd real soon.
Janice & Lorraine
