Frequently Asked Questions about the Crops:

What should I bring to the crop?
Plan ahead, and bring your scrapbook project ready to assemble!  Pre-cropped and pre-planned pages will go together easily, and allow you to enjoy this crop!   Plan to be able to bring in your supplies in one trip, because you won’t want to make several!  It will be a long walk!

Should I bring my own chair to the crop?
Crop Chair 2

We supply a chair for you; however if you are planning to crop all day – you may wish to either bring a cushion for your comfort, or bring your own chair.  We’ve provided a photo of the chair we provide in Columbus, so that you can make your own choice!  **Please note – the chair provided for the Birch Run Scrap & Stamp Show is different.  Please check that event page for the correct photo!


Will I be able to shop during the crop?
Croppers will be able to shop on the show floor during show hours.  Admission to the show floor is included with their Crop registration.  During the evening crop party, some exhibitors will have merchandise for sale at tables during the crop. They won’t be bringing the whole booth! So, if there is something special you need, or you see during the day, don’t wait until the evening to purchase it!

Can I sit with my friends at the crop?
When you register for the Crop – you and your friends can select your tables so that you are near one another.

Are there any age restrictions?
All croppers must have a wristband to enter the cropping hall, and we ask that you leave infants and children under the age of 11 at home with Dad or a sitter!

All Day Croppers will have access to power at their tables.

What if I get hungry?
