Crop time!

I love spending time cropping - chatting with friends, sharing ideas, and maybe occasionally scrapping! Here at Papermaze we hold regular crops on the third Saturday of every month. The crops run between 10am and 5pm and cost £3.50. That price includes light refreshments - as much tea, coffee, biscuits and homemade cakes as you like! Our venue is Otley Village Hall which is very spacious so there's plenty of room for overflowing totes! We have a regular group of ladies, who are lovely and a lot of fun - and we always welcome newcomers and try to make them feel at home. The hall is just round the corner from the shop, so we open up for a couple of hours especially for crop attendees - if you're feeling energetic you can walk across the fields, but most people opt for the 2-minute car journey!

We always have a class kit of some description, which includes everything you need to make the project, use of any tools and a detailed instruction sheet - the price varies according to what is in the kit but it's always optional. Last Saturday we had a great kit from Lesley looking at patterned paper. She used 3 Bugs Cotton Shop papers - here's her layout and Karen's interpretaion of it! (OK, blogger's not letting me upload, so I'll add them later!)

If you fancy joining us just drop us an email - and next time I'll try and take some photos of the crop to share - though I have a feeling the ladies may be very shy!

And don't forget there is still time to enter our competition - we must receive your email today though! We've had some great entries already and I've really enjoyed looking through them - it's going to be tough to choose a winner!
