Changes in 2014
With such a fabulous response to the changes we made
last year, weve decided to make more changes that reflect what youre
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 well be open
from 9am 10pm with enhanced lunch service (dont worry about eating
in a small window of time your lunch will be ready and waiting when
you want it!) Dont forget about the electricity and Wi-Fi
included for all Day Croppers and Thursdays price has gone DOWN!
Were 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 (dont miss
that Table Decorating Contest!) and prizes youve enjoyed all
