The official crop count is 18 this year.

If you are bringing something for the goodie bags for each person you need 18. Again, this can be something handmade or store bought. In the past some of the things brought have included: ribbons, diecuts, coasters, wrapped candy bars, tags, etc.

There will be a yard sale table set up. If you have any CRAFT items (no lamps or nick nacks please, LOL!) that you are wanting to sell, mark them with your name and price. If anyone wants to buy your things they will do it directly through you.

I will provide directions to the mall and how to find the room we are in next week. You don't have to carry your supplies all through the mall, there is an outside entrance to the room we are in!

If anyone has any questions, let me know! I can't wait to craft the weekend away!!!!!

Kathy has said that if anyone wants to learn how to make the swirly scraves that she can show you! You will just need a skein of the yarn they use for them and a size 4 or 5 crochet hook!! She might also bring some along she has made to sell if anyone is interested!

CROP ATTENDEES WENT UP TO 20 LAST NIGHT!!
I got an email from a local lady that she and her mother (from Canada) will be joining us. Email was written like she had already told me, so I am thinking maybe there was a miscommunication of some sort!

No way BigGrin

Scrap Fest was a fun way to see product, get some ideas, but I don't do the whole event. I missed on getting into the class I wanted, but I did get to see the end result - so that was good BigGrin

I am not into waiting in lines that average 45 minutes - 1 hour to do make and takes. Definitely some wonderful items a lot of people make, but I don't have the amount of time needed to spend that much time in line. I just watch what others do and make notes Drool Drool

Can't wait for Croppin with my Friends! I haven't started packing, but need to soon. Thinking my mini cricut and gypsy will make the trip rather than the larger one - it has a nicer bag to roam Flapper . Plus, if I get organized, I won't need the cricut - just bringing for Mom to use if she wants (or others - I usually just ask you bring your own mat if it is more than one or two cuts).

I have changed my mind on giftie thing about 8 times - no clue what I will actually end up with LOL

Door prize - done! Saw some cute items while shopping.

You throw an awesome crop and I love it that we get to meet ppl face to face
from the board and sometimes some of their families as well.

Hugs to you,
Kathy

Sraprageous, I agree with you, I wouldn't want to stand in line that long either! We went up to the scrapbook expo once in St. Charles and all the make and take at the different booths there were lined way up waiting to do them so we never did any of them.
We'll have couple EXPRESSIONS set up at the crop if you and mom want to use them and not haul yours down. Of course use your own mats. But I you would rather use your own that is ok too!

Speaking of Expressions,
I just got a new/slightly used E2 but I haven't tried using it
yet. So I am hoping to bring it along and get some pointers
on using it at the crop on Sat. Does anyone here know how to
use the E2 and are you willing to help this novice?

Also regarding learning to make the swirly scarves, I will be bringing some
scraps of the " yarn" along so pple can try the stitches without buying
anything yet. If you like doing it then you can get your crochet hook
and "yarn" from WM or J's etc later. If nobody is interested that's okay too.
LOL

Kathy, I got what I hope is the right kind of yard today, does it just take 1 skein for one scarf? And I think I got the right size crochet hook too. I want to learn how!!

There should be a pic on the front of a swirly scarf
around a ladies neck, well at least one brand I know
has that maybe some brands have something else on the label.
Anywho, we'll see what you have when I get there and I am
happy to teach you.
Say a little prayer I get over this c-dif infection in my gut
so I don't have to spend the day on the pot.Blushing
I noticed today too that they are predicting rain Saturday,
wouldn't you know it.....LOL
Now about that E2, does anyone know how to use one?

I'm afraid my is the original expression, so I won't be much help!! Sorry. Hopefully someone will be able to help you! Or you might be able to find youtube tutorials on it? I have heard mixed feelings about the e2 and will be anxious to hear what you think of it!!
