sets us apart from the other scrapbooking retreats out
there? Take a moment and let us tell you!
- Cropping Daze has a GIGANTIC cropping room – over 1200 sq. feet of
space for you to pursue your favorite hobby! The room features its own
furnace and air conditioning , so YOU have control over the temperature.
It also has its own bathroom. For your comfort, the floor has been raised
and insulated, and EACH cropper/hobbiest has her OWN 8-FOOT TABLE with natural
Ott lighting, electrical outlets, and cozy upholstered swivel chair.
The tables are also the nice heavy duty ones – not the kind that when you
pound a grommet, your hammer bounces up and hits you in the head! Our cropping
room has been modified for your comfort – you can bring every supply you
own – even the kitchen sink – and there would still be plenty of room to
move around your area and the other croppers. Also, you don’t have to carry
your cropping gear up OR down stairs! Our cropping room is on the ground floor.
