Crop Weekend

What is a crop you ask? It is the scrapbooking word for a weekend retreat. Vendors will offer spotlight classes on new product lines and techniques. The fee covers the full weekend, your own 8-foot table, snacks, coffee, tea and water. There will be gift bags on each table and chances to win door prizes. Come and go as you please. Our hours offer you the flexibility to spend time with your family and still come out scrapbooking guilt free.

Friday times 3:00pm-9:00pm , Saturday 8:00am-9:00pm, Sunday 8:00am-4:00pm.

Look them up on Facebook at Nicola Valley Scrapbookers
