Now then, this WOYWW Crop....

Take a mad idea, (Jan) put it to a few internet based WOYWWers and watch it bloom into a reality. That's how it's feeling right now.  So here's some info about the WOYWW Crop that you need to know if you're coming.

  • It's on Saturday 13th October.
  • It's to be held in the village of Burbage, Wiltshire.  If you've emailed me to say that you're coming, you will receive an email from me soon - with driving directions and postcodes and such stuff as is necessary to get there.
  • We need to know if you're coming before you turn up. There's table numbers to consider, and more importantly, there's catering to be done; the thought of spreading it too thinly makes Jan and I giddy with hunger.
  • The cost will be roughly £10 per person.  It simply is to cover hall hire and food; if there's any profit, Jan would like to nominate The Wiltshire Air Ambulance as the beneficiary.  
  • Bring a dry craft to do.  If you want to knit, stitch or darn, no problem.  Scrapbooking, card making, whatever it is you want to do, bring it with you.  Don't worry if this involves turning up in a lorry, you will be in good company!
  • There will be a range of tables: 
    • one for selling unused/unwanted stash - label it with your name and a price and put it on the table.
    • one for giving away stash that you no longer want/part used or that you simply don't think you can charge for. Swapping is not uncommon.  If you want it to be a swap...label it with your name so that you can be approached.
    • one for selling any hand made goods that you produce for sale (for example, Jan will have some Fabric Frenzy products).  Again, mark them clearly with name and price.
  • Our Diane (Morti) will be running a demo/tuition about the fantastic altered dominos that can be found on her blog.  If you want to have a go, please bring your own domino(s).  Consult her blog for real info, this post in particular.
  • It 'starts' at 10.00am....you don't have to be bang on time, it's just that there has to be a start and stop time really!  We'll pack up at about 4.30.
  • Please don't bring presents for Jan and I, there is no need.  We want to meet you, have a fun day of chat and craft and not cause any pressure or stress.
So, if you haven't yet, email me - juliadunnit@me.com to let me know you're coming. It will be fun.  Jan promises.

Angie said...

Wow ...sounds like an amazing day ...wish I could be there but the journey would be too much as I dont drive ...I would have to travel to London from Scotland and then back up to you....no idea why.
I will think of you all and look forward to the photos. xx

Morti said...

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAL

Excited...moi?


It appears I am not only demo-ing dominos, but bringing edibles too! That is to say food, Jozarty and Doone don't count as edibles. I think.... I could be wrong. I'll let my hangover tell you on Saturday....

just read this post and checked on the price of a ticket...nope can't be there...$1800 is a bit more then I have saved right now! Have a great time and I will be wishing I could be there! Vickie

Darnell J Knauss said...

Me, neither. I so wish I could be!! This is an incredical idea and I think we need to have little offshoots popping up regionally all over the USA! Please post pictures and let us know things that worked and things that didn't! xxoo!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Oh, I forgot why I came here, Julia! I just had to respond to your suggestion about the squirrel food delights. Eating cute little squirrels, no matter how impish they are, is offensive to me, but there are places in this country that eat it, too. To each his own, but I have to ask: How drunk was the chef who first came up with the word "offal" for any edible dish? Seriously?

Have a bee-bop blast at the Crop!

Queenie Jeannie said...

Sounds like a lot of fun!!! Wish I could be there!

peggy aplSEEDS said...

Sounds like such fun! I'm sure you'll all have a great time!

Kate said...

Been a bit off radar cos my browser has gone tits up! Visiting blogs, commenting etc has become painful as I bang my fists on the desk in frustration.

Still coming cropping, but worried about this 'dry craft' I will be allowed to make a mess won't I? I can't craft if there is a no mess policy!!!

I am actually considering making the 3.5 hour journey each way! Won't know until closer to the day if my health will allow it - will email you either way. A,i x

I WANT TO COME...

Do you know if there is anyone coming past junction 29 on the M1 so that I could car share... I would even be willing to go to a convenient place in order to maybe hitch a lift... it would make life easier if I could come, not have to drive, and not have to drag anyone else to bring me...

I've only been wishing for this to happen for over 2 years - and now its happening... you know how much I'd love to come...

Is it possible to find out... I'd be a good co-pilot. I'd be willing to play I-spy or spot Eddie Stobart lorries... or count yellow cars. Anything.

Hugs

Fiona@staring at the sea said...

I would have loved to come and join you all, but I have SU training the following day and can't really blag another day away from home!
Hope you all have a fantabulous time xx

Sarah Anderson said...

this sounds fab, a bit far for me after lots of other busy weekends, but have fun everyone!!!

Neet said...

Well, I was booked in for something else that weekend so can't come and am gutted! Would have got DH to drive me all the way down and back.
Just envious of the wonderful time you will all have but I know it will all go well and you will all have the most wonderful of times. Perhaps there will be another one when i can join in.
All my love to EVERYONE
Neet xx

Howdy Julia,
Even though I reside in Chicago, IL, USA - I do travel occasionally.
