Packing for a Crop

Recently got back from a crop, so I thought I would do a quick video about efficiently packing for a crop. We have all our items organized in our craft rooms, but what works best for traveling? Here’s what I’ve learned over 10 years of scrapbooking trips!

Someone recently asked, what is a crop? Good question!

If you’re not familiar with going to a crop, it’s a group of crafters getting together to stamp and scrapbook together. It can be held at a church, hall, or even a hotel. Many of us go to places that are bed & breakfasts that cater specifically to crafters. See my list of places to go near Ohio!
