I go to a lot of scheduled crops. I am on some scrapbooking email lists and then pass them on to my friends who are scrappers. I go to about four or five different church crops. Two different friends usually organizes weekend crops. I go to the crop in Kankakee supporting Diabetes.

I find if you stay in touch with other scrappers, then you get out more and scrap yourself.

The only thinkg I hate is packing it all up to go and then repacking to go home! If anyone emials me their email address, I will gladly add them to the list! LOL!

I am in the city, on the NW side.

I know the Archivers in Niles and Craft Fancy in Arlington Heights host crops, but I haven't been to one yet.

hotpinklpstck -- St. Mark Lutheran Church in Lindenhurst hosts crops periodically. I attended once with my cousin. Everyone was really nice and lunch/snack/dinner are provided (everyone brings a dish to share).
