What is a Crop or Open Craft?  For those who love to craft, a Crop is a fun event to attend. It is a great time to gather with friends and other crafting enthusiasts to share ideas, learn new techniques and get focused on your projects. You don't have to be a scrapbooker to enjoy crops; many of our guests work on other projects like card making, altered art, and DIY projects. When attending a Crop, you will need to bring supplies that will keep you busy. Many guests will bring totes or bags filled with paper, scissors, trimmers, adhesive, photos, albums, etc. We have various stamps, stencils, punches and dies you can also use. Plus, you can shop at our store during the event. At Crops, each person gets a six-foot table to use so there is plenty of room to spread out and get creative!
