Crops in our neck of the woods - - - http://www.scrapbookexpo.com/e-mail%20blasts/2013/ ...

Have you ever done one of these? I think I'm kind of interested.

No, I have never been to a crop before. Just got an email to a couple of scrap retreats in my area. They sound pretty cool! I like that the Sonoma one can be done as a day crop since I live in the area and would not have to spend extra $$ on hotel stay.

Gramma,

I haven't done those; but I have done one in Morgan Hill (south of San Jose). I really enjoyed it. If you think you want to go, then I would email and ask questions.

Oh go, go girls! And come back and tell us all about it? Have you folks met up in real life yet?

I've been to local crops a couple of times. And I've gone to the CK convention in Oregon (my sister lives there) a couple of times also.

The e-mail I got caught my eye because these crops are pretty local. And I'm wondering if a few of us Northern California Jazzers would be interested in a meet up.

Gramma which crop were you interested in? I liked the Sonoma one, mostly because they offer it without having to book the hotel stay.

The November one? I would only be able to do one day of that one because the company I work for is having their management retreat that week. So, I looked at the cost. Yikes ! ! $145 for 3 days and there is no splitting out just one day.

Maybe we can choose one after the first of the year. Looks like they are pricey though. And it looks like the one in January doesn't offer the day rate. :-(

I didn't pay attention to the dates, I can't do anything until after the holidays are over. Are you going to the Sacramento Scrap Expo? Haven't been to that one since DD graduated college.

I've thought about going - are you interested? We could shop the floor then go to the crop.

I would really like to go, but with my current work schedule, I wouldn't be able to get there until around two in the afternoon on Friday and Sat & Sun. are out for me.

Are there any scrapbook stores in your area that hold classes or crops?

We could work around that - I could actually work a half day on Friday - - How late would you want to stay? It's about a 2 hour drive from Santa Rosa to Sacramento - -

Couldn't stay too late, as I have a 7 am shift on Sat. mornings.

Same here for independent scrapbook stores

So - I did some looking - there are virtually no independent scrap stores here - none, nada, zero. I guess the combination of the economy, waning interest and the internet got them all.

There are several groups though that sponsor monthly crops that run Friday, Saturday, Sunday.

Bummer on the independent scrap book stores.
Will have to look & see what Scrap Expo has to offer for their crop/classes. I like taking classes, that way I actually get something done.
