I LOVE to get together with the gals and scrap/eat/chat/play!
What I found was:
- 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
- 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)

** A one day fee of $20 will be offered only two weeks prior to the crop and only upon availability.
