For anyone who isn't on my mailing list, I'm sharing an email I sent out today.  Please email the organizers directly for registration forms as I can't attach them to this post!

Our next crop will be on October 12, 2013 at Miss Bridgette’s in Lebanon. Early Bird registration is open now ($20 per person for 2 at a table or $35 for a full table for 1 person) and details about classes, etc. will be posted on our blog: as they become available. Please remember that due to space constraints, we are limiting this October crop to 25 total tables (whether there are two croppers or one cropper per table) so if you want in, please don't delay!!!
In the meantime, I have cut and pasted information I have about various upcoming crops in this email. Please contact the organizers of each event directly, as I am not actively involved with running any of these other events. I have attached flyers, registration forms, etc that are available to me at this time.
Friday March 1, 2013 and Saturday, March 2, 2013 -
Friday night, March 1, 6 pm-11pm; Saturday, March 2, 9 am-8 pm. We will provide lunch on Saturday, with breakfast and dinner on your own. Cost is $25. Please pre-register, as last year we had a great turnout and we want to plan enough table space for everyone.

Attached is the registration flyer, so feel free to pass it on to any other croppin' friends you know. Contact Pam Trout at with any questions!
Friday, March 8, 2013 - All day scrap at the church in Deer Park - this year we are opening the church at noon and closing at midnight. There is no charge but you must RSVP and reserve space. You may be required to bring your own table, as we will fill up quickly. This is just a bare-bones scrap time - come and go as you please, bring your own food or drink, you get to scrap for 12 hours and pay nothing. This is an excellent event for both beginning crafters and novice. For the beginners we will have many demonstrations. I will send out more information on this and get sign-ups mid-February. Contact Michelle Diekmeyer at mdiekmeyer@gmail.comfor more details.
