Changes in 2014
With such a fabulous response to the changes we made last year, we’ve decided to make more changes that reflect what you’re looking for! 

Thursday Cropping (the show floor is  still open for shopping to all, and classes are still running and open to all on Thursday!) will now be reserved for DAY CROPPERS ONLY!  We have are expanding our available seating – and we’ll be open from 9am – 10pm – with enhanced lunch service (don’t worry about eating in a small window of time – your lunch will be ready and waiting when you want it!)  Don’t forget about the electricity and Wi-Fi included for all Day Croppers – and  Thursday’s price has gone DOWN!

We’re also changing up the informal crop area – since demand has been for other fun activities on the show floor – demonstrations, book signings and photo ops – and for more lunch seating – we will no longer be offering an informal crop space.  Look for great new opportunities throughout the weekend!

And finally – all the FUN of our famous crop party is now packed into ONE FABULOUS NIGHT!  Join us Friday from 6pm – midnight for all the great games, contests (don’t miss that Table Decorating Contest!) and prizes you’ve enjoyed all these years!

A Couple of Important Show Policies:
NO ROLLING TOTES!  For the safety and security of our guests.  No Rolling Totes are permitted on the Sales Floor or in Classrooms.  Rolling Totes will only be permitted  at the Crop Parties.  A bag check area will be available and staffed all show hours.  Umbrella Strollers ONLY!  Due to the crowds at the Mega Meet, we restrict to only umbrella strollers on the show floor.  The wheelbase of your stroller must fit inside the taped area near the entrance (we use an umbrella stroller to tape the wheelbase area.)  Umbrella Strollers MUST contain a child - they cannot be used as shopping carts.  Free Umbrella Strollers are available to check out if your stroller is too large to bring onto the floor.  Click for a complete list of Show Policies.
