Are you planning on hosting a scrapbooking crop? If so, you're in for a world of fun! Scrapbooking is a fun and creative hobby enjoyed by millions worldwide, and a crop is a great way to get experienced and novice scrappers together to share tips, get new pointers, and to create some great new pages and books. But as much as it is, there are some important things to remember when hosting a scrapbooking crop.
For one thing, no matter how devoted a scrapper is he or she will probably need something else to do other than just concentrate on scrapbooks all day or all weekend. When hosting a scrapbooking crop be sure to provide other activities that attendees can participate in, or provide instructors and demonstrators of new products or techniques. This means that the attendees won't be drained from trying to create new pages and books for hours and hours at end and can get a rest from all the activity.
If you're hosting a scrapbooking crop and want to provide an instructor make sure he or she is very experienced with both scrapbooking and in presenting as well. Some people are very good at the hobby but not very good at instructing others! It's awful for someone to be hit with stage fright when they're just trying to share tips on such a great hobby, and of course everyone will then turn to the person that is hosting the scrapbooking crop to get things rolling again.
Demonstrating new products is also fun when hosting a scrapbooking crop but make sure you're not hiding a sales presentation as an actual crop. Those who attend will expect to be able to create pages and maybe even an entire book while they're there and they will need and space to do just that. And make sure everyone can get something to eat and drink as well! If you're hosting a scrapbooking crop that is just one day you can usually provide a boxed or catered lunch; if this is a weekend affair you'll need to talk to the hotel or someone else about catering different meals or let your attendees know what restaurants are in the area. If you keep these points in mind when hosting a scrapbooking crop you're sure to have a great time that is fun and enjoyable for everyone in attendance.
