Marsha, you are probably looking at a 45 minute to an hour drive from Galesburg. Closer to the 45 minute. You could go up Rte 150 which is 2 lane then get on Rte 74, or you can get on Rte 74, which is 4 lane, right here in Galesburg. Either way it would be easy to get to, just depends on if you want to drive it or not! Hope you decide to join us!!

It is getting close to time to start signing up for this crop! Hope you are all making plans to attend, getting room reservations made, and lining up your babysitters!

I will probably start taking PAID reservations in early August! The crop is a GREAT value at only $75 for the entire weekend! And remember, that includes most of your meals, and the always popular DOOR PRIZES!!

If anyone is looking for someone to carpool or share a room with, feel free to post it on here.

Any questions, just ask!

I will be taking my grandkids home to CO this weekend, so my life will be slowing down considerably next week! I will start taking paid reservations for this crop probably around August 14! Hope you are getting your rooms lined up to stay, and are as excited as I am for this crop!!

OK, I am ready, so you can now start paying for your reservations at this crop! A spot is $75 for all 3 days and includes your table space and Friday supper, Saturday lunch and supper, and Sunday breakfast! We always have plenty of door prizes too! (If anyone would like to donate something for a door prize, let me know!) Spend the weekend working on whatever you want, no phone, no kids, just crafting!! Hours the room will be open are: Friday 3pm-9pm, Saturday 8am-9pm, and Sunday 8am-3pm. bring your craft supplies, comfy clothes, and a snack to share. If you would like to bring something for each persons' goodie bag, I will keep you posted as to how many others will be attending! We have had some really cute things brought, both handmade and store bought, in the past!
All crop fees are non-refundable, and must be paid in full by Saturday, September 14. I will provide my paypal addy if you want to pay that way, or if you need to mail it, I will provide my snail mail addy. Please let me know if you plan to attend soon as I am needing to finalize meal plans and how many tables we need.
Any questions, don't hesitate to ask! When you pay your fee, I need your name, address, a phone number, email, and emergency contact person. I am not responsible for any accidents, or lost or stolen property. The room is always locked unless I am there though and we have not had any problems in the past.

Again, if you have any questions, just ask! Sure I have overlooked some stuff!

Changed my mind on the driving and we are at the Fairfield. However, there is something going on in town that weekend - no discounts were allowed (I have about 6 to choose from and they weren't taking any). It was easier to call them direct than try to add a room online. Online kept saying none were available.

Should be a blast.BigGrin BigGrin

My email addy is: bakerl@unit5.org and/or feej@unit5.org

However, if you send instructions as to how to find your post No. 98, I'll gladly enter my info via this site.

Best,
LaTishia

Hello LaTishia! Nice to meet you! It would be great to have you and your buddy join us!! POST 98 is the post number in this thread that I posted some update information in. If you just scroll up a few posts from the one you posted, you will see it. (Posts are numbered in each thread and your post was number 109 and this one is number 110!) If you have any questions let me know! You are about an hour and a half drive from Galesburg on route 74!

Try calling the numbers Janice put in the top post. I couldn't find one on-line, but called the Fairfield direct and they had a room.

I would offer to share, but already am for the weekend BigGrin

I am planning on coming and I already have a room reservation. I hope there is still room at the crop. I'm just waiting to see if my DH can come on the trip with me. He's thinking he'll have to work Friday night, the 27th. I'll know more in a few days.
