Hotel room costs are NOT included.
Pajama Party Thursday events open at 8:00pm and the crop room is open all evening into Friday at 12:00 noon when the regular crop starts.
The 3-day events run from noon Friday to 3pm Sunday. As much as we would love to allow you to linger late, our contract with the hotel does not allow it. OCCASIONALLY, we are granted extra time to crop on Sunday evenings. If that is the case, we will let you know a few days in advance.
Table Space & Seating
Each Attendee will have 6x3 feet of table space for their use. Seating is pre-arranged according to whom you asked to sit with or who asked to sit with you! Please do not switch seats.
Electric & Internet
If you plan to use anything electric, you will need to bring YOUR OWN extension cords and floor tape. We do however have electric available at each table throughout the crop room for easy access. Internet is available free of charge.
Cricut and Computer Station
We have a computer station and a printer available for journaling and titles. We also have one "Baby" Circut and two Cricut Expressions available for your use. We ask that you provide your own Cricut Mats to use with our equipment. We have over 40 cartridges available on a check out basis. If you do not have experience using the Cricut please let us know before "winging it". We are happy to show you how, and we're confident you'll be hooked!
If you are following a special diet due to health issues, or if you have a physical limitation that will need to be addressed, now is the time to tell us. Please don't wait for the day of the event to let us know you are lactose intolerant, diabetic, vegan, etc.
The majority of attendees we surveyed want music at the events so we provide it in the background. If you choose to listen to your own music, please bring headphones.
We will have two massage therapists at our event, offering massages to all interested. The appointment book fills VERY quickly so if you are interested in a massage please remember to sign up early.
Ears, Noses, and Weather
We all like to smell pretty, but almost 90 ladies wearing 90 different fragrances can be a little much, please apply your perfume lightly. Please dress in layers in case you get too hot or too cold - we all have different climate controls! And it is a rarity that these venues allow us to fiddle with the thermostat. We recommend a t-shirt under long sleeves under a sweatshirt/sweater (Layers are key). DON'T SAY WE DIDN'T WARN YOU!
Don't forget your...
Seat cushion - Even padded chairs can get hard after a few hours.
Craft light - The cropping room has overhead lighting, but for detailed work you may want a little extra.
Camera - take lots of pictures of your new friends and their layouts!
Cash/checkbook/credit cards/first-born - to shop with our vendors and pay for your classes.
Tag-Along or closed lid drink holder, as there are no open drinks allowed on the cropping tables.
