Once you have children, the easiest thing to do it simply go to a crop. If you don’t, you get a lot of little helpers and you might not always want that help
What I found when going to a few different crops:
- the crops were really expensive or really far away
- I had to bring EVERYTHING I needed (even bedding)
- I had to cook a dinner for the group while someone else got off just making a continental breakfast
- I had a regimented schedule to follow (games, contests, etc).
- There were crop organizers who sold some product line and insulted you if you weren’t a “purest” to their product
SO, I have been running a weekend crop, In Madison, for several years that covers all of that! It’s only 4-5 times a year as we all have busy lives, but it lets me get my projects done without all the great “helpful” intentions of my six year old daughter, LOL!
Here is the info:
We keep it cheap – $35 for the weekend, hotel would be extra but you can get up to 6 in a hotel room with the pull out couch.
Your $35 Crop fee includes: (see below how to save $5!)
-Six Foot Table to yourself
-Unlimited cropping time
-Use of assorted scrapbooking tools (See List Below) **so you can pack lighter!
-laptop with Design Studio and Sure Cuts A Lot ** for the Cricut Lovers!
-Reserved Seating **sit by your friends
-Vendors on site (varies by event)
-Free Class (different every time)
