We are going back to beautiful STONEWALL RESORT! And we are guaranteed to have THE BALLROOM for the weekend! Woo Hoo!

Be sure to check out all this resort has to offer - besides crazy-fun scrapbooking goodness! Visit Stonewall Resort here for all the info!

I've also reserved a KING SUITE that sleeps up to 6 people.

I've also reserved a QUEEN SUITE that sleeps up to 6 people. The suite is $195 per night and includes one bedroom with 2 queen beds and a living room/dining room/kitchen with mini fridge and microwave that sleeps 2 on the queen sleeper sofa! This suite has 2 full bathrooms! If you split the cost 6 ways that's only $33 per night! There is only ONE available on a first come, first served basis. Be sure to call Stonewall to reserve this suite and then let me know it is taken so I can post it here.

I've also reserved a TWO ROOM SUITE that sleeps up to 10 people.

Be sure to let me know if you are interested in reserving this space!

There are COTTAGES on the grounds if you are interested! Let me know and I can put you in touch with my contact at Stonewall. No one wanted to commit to reserving them, so they are now released to the public. However, if you are interested and they are still available, she will be happy to give you the rates quoted below. Let me know if you would like a cottage!
2 Bedroom Cottage - $200/night + resort fees and park fees
3 Bedroom Cottage - $300/night + resort fees and park fees
4 Bedroom Cottage - $400/night + resort fees and park fees

Doors open at 1pm on Friday, February 8th and close at 3pm on Sunday, February 11th! 
(NOTE: the ballroom is locked each night at 11pm to ensure that you get a good night's sleep! If we kept it open it would be a MUCH higher cost for utilities and staff to be on stand-by.)
I can provide electric at your cropping table. Let me know if you would like it and if you can bring a surge protector and extension cord!

I will also have a tool table with a Cricut, Cuttle Bug, stamps and ink. Be sure to bring your own Cricut Mat to use.

MEALS
If you are eating at the Stillwaters Restaurant at the Resort, our dinner times are 5pm and 6pm. If you are eating at TJ Muskies Bar and Grill at the Resort they are open from 3pm - midnight. (Lunch and dinner are own your own.) Reservations are recommended but not necessary.

For those on a meal budget, TJ Muskie's is an economical choice OR you can use the mini-fridge in your room, or reserve one of the suites with a kitchenette or one of the cottages with a full kitchen!

At this facility, we CAN NOT bring our own snacks/drinks into the ballroom, but you can have them in your hotel room or suite.

NEW THIS YEAR - we are not including breakfast with the crop fee this year. 
This past crop there were issues with families eating the food that hadn't paid for it. In reading our surveys (yes we read and discuss every single word!) there were some complaints about the food. So we have decided as a team to remove that charge from the crop fee and add a beverage service during that time.
Note: For those on a budget, you can bring instant oatmeal cups and eat them in your room or keep fruit and bagels in your mini-fridge. For those in the suites you have a mini-kitchenette with microwave. For those in the cottages you have a full kitchen! For the rest of us, I highly recommend Stillwaters for breakfast. I had breakfast there before we set up this year and it was delicious! And not much more than the charge to have it outside of our ballroom. You can order off of the menu or choose the breakfast buffet!

Beverages are included in your crop fee and will be provided just outside of our cropping room. You can bring these drinks into the ballroom. 

Morning Beverages will be provided daily from 7am - 11am and will include the following:

Regular and Decaf Coffee with flavored syrups
A Variety of Hot Teas
Hot Chocolate
A Variety of Fruit Juices
Bottled Water

Afternoon Beverages will be provided from 1pm - 5pm and will include the following:

Regular and Decaf Coffee with flavored syrups
Iced Tea
A Variety of Hot Teas
Hot Chocolate
Sodas (Coke products)
Bottled Water

SPACE
Every cropper will receive their own table along with an executive swivel chair! TRUST me, these chairs are the bomb! As you know, this will be our 6th year returning to Stonewall. And this past year we had more croppers than ever! We also exceeded Stonewall's supply of 6' x 2 1/2' tables! So they substituted 6' x 2' and 8' x 2' tables where necessary. In reading our surveys, (YES - we read every word!) some were disappointed with the table they were given. Let me just say now, I have no control over that. When you arrive, if you are disappointed with the table you've been given, please ask if one of your neighbors would like to trade. Honestly, we had some who mentioned on their survey that the LOVED the more slender tables and some who felt cheated! We can't please everyone, but we sure try our best! See if a neighbor would like to trade with you if necessary.

Also, this past year we had 76 cropper/tables. In order to open up a little more space for everyone, I have to limit registration to 72 tables! If more people would like to attend, they simply need to share a table!

WORKSHOPS
A variety of workshops will be prepared for you to participate in, either at your table or as a class. Please let me know if you would like to pre-register for any workshops or products so that I can have them ready for you at the crop! Only a few extra will be prepared for each class, so it's important to pre-register!

You can view the workshops and kits on my Facebook Events Page closer to the actual date.

AUCTION
There will be plenty of prizes to bid on with your crop cash! What are YOU willing to do for a buck?


SPA
Receive a 20% discount on spa services at the Mtn Laurel Spa when you reserve at least 7 days in advance of arrival and mention you are with the Creating With Christine Group! You can always let Santa know that you "need" a massage or facial this weekend! You won't be disappointed!


Contact me to reserve your spot at this amazing weekend getaway! 
Space is limited to 72 special people!

I have some incentives for those who pay their crop fee in advance IN FULL:
Pay in full by August 31 - Cost $105 + receive $50 in crop cash
Pay in full by November 30 - Cost $115 + receive $20 in crop cash
Pay December - January - Cost $120

REFUND POLICY
It is important to realize that I contract with the facility and have to pay for the entire space and services regardless. Your crop fee covers an equal portion of the contract. If you cannot attend, I still need to pay for your spot. However, I fully understand that sometimes circumstances occur that would prevent you from attending (illness, death in the family, etc.). With that in mind, if you reserve a spot and are unable to attend, you may transfer your fee to a friend and work out reimbursement directly with them. I simply won't have time this year to try to find a replacement for you. However, if I have a waiting list, I'd be happy to refer the next in line to you!


** If you sign up for the partial payment, you must return here to make the next payment. Your card will NOT be billed automatically.

  1. I just now saw this. Wish I could come but have previous commitments, plus I am going to a retreat in Ohio Amish country the following weekend. Do you have them just once a year. .

    1. Hi Sally!
      The past few years I have had a fall weekend crop in Huntington and a winter weekend crop at Stonewall. I also have all day crops at my home in Cross Lanes. I will advertise the next one here on my blog, or I can add you to my mailing list if you would like. I simply need your email address and your permission!

      I'd love to have you join us in the future! Have fun in Amish country!

  7. Hey, Christine. I just wanted to make sure I was signed up and confirmed for this crop. I seem to have lost all of my emails from you! I know I paid, but I just want to make sure. I think Jeanie Bord already requested to sit with me and also Jessica Sapp. Can you let me know? Thank you!
