2008 Crops Posted

I finally got some time and was able to post the crops for the remainder of 2008. It seemed easier to do it and get it done than not give people enough time to plan and arrange for babysitters etc. The crops are filling at record speed. We did change some rules and crop refunds for cancellations suring the grace period are done in store credit now. As before if you cancel after the deadline the fee is forfeited. The 3 day crops now require 2 day attendance to register. 2 weeks before the crop is there is any space left we will open it up to people who want to attend just 1 day. Call the store to go ont he wait list.
Don't forget to watch your email newsletter as we will be sending out class information on teh Tim Holtz classes this month. Then 1 week from that email registration will open online. Make sure when registering for crops or classes you do not put in any apostrophe's, hyphens or anything other than letters. It will cause an error and will not register you. The Tim class registrants will receive a confirmation email showing the amount being charged, classes chosen etc. If you do not receive this email you are NOT registered and need to register or followup with the store ASAP. Make sure to bring this with you the day of your class. Thsi will insure no mixup's occur.
