1.24.12 with Sherry Mendoza

We recently sat down for lunch and I leaned more about this fantastic lady. Sherry is a happily married military wife who recently made the big move from Australia to Utah (love her fun accent!). She has worked in the craft industry for over 6 years in a range of positions which include teaching, designing, marketing/promotions, magazine editor, expo participant/organizer and consultant. Sherry has recently joined the team at My Craft Channel as Creative Director, a role which she loves! Sherry is super excited about attending this years Scrapbook USA Expo!

You will be able to find Sherry in the My Craft Channel booth, teaching 2 AWESOME classes and hosting the all-night crop!

If you are up for cropping all night, watch out, Sherry has LOT'S of energy and has some fun ideas on how to keep the crafting going! You should come out of the crop with new ideas, inspiration and lot's of pages done.

A few things to know about the crop:

*Because of the nature of the show with our vendors and product. The all night crop will be held outside of the expo hall in the classrooms. We will open up the room dividers to create wide open space.

*Seats will not be assigned in advance. They are first come, first serve.

*South Towne Expo is a county run facility and "all-nighters" are not something they normally do. We did receive special permission from the county board to run this event and they do have a few stipulations. The all nighter is not a "come and go" event. You must check in by 11:30 and if you leave, security will not allow you to re-enter. They will have extra security on staff to make sure it is a safe event.

*To make the transition to Saturday we will make things super easy. You will be the first to enter the show on Saturday thanks to a special entrance for our All Night Croppers. We will do all we can to make it easy to clean up and move your supplies back to the show floor.

*Your All Night Crop ticket includes Friday regular admission and Saturday early bird admission. If you are interested in a different Friday or Saturday ticket please call in and we can take care of applying a discount to the upgraded ticket you are looking for. (801) 253-4481

Fiesta Fun Scrapbooking/Craft Weekend

Our next retreat is at the beautiful Lindsay Lodge in Heber City. May 2-5th 2013. This event is all-inclusive. All types of crafters welcome! Homemade meals with beverages provided! Price includes a bed, a shared 6 foot table and use of on-site tools.

New to scrapbooking or not a scrapbooker and unaware what retreats are all about? Well, imagine packing up luggage for a typical family of 4, full only with your craft items of choice (papers, adhesives, embellishments, albums, tools, stickers, etc.) then cra...mming one more tote bag in your van containing just your change of clothes & toiletries. Then you drive (usually with a couple of like-minded crafty friends) spectacular house in Heber City (overlooking the Heber Valley), you set up at a table on Thursday and work on your crafts of choice all weekend until Sunday, taking breaks only to eat & sleep a few hours. ECSTASY . . .......

Want to sew? Make cards? Knit? Digital Scrapbook? Watch movies in an awesome theater room? Just get away? This is the time for YOU! This could possibly be the best thing ever.

We will have 3 Cricut machines and over 75 cartridges for everyone to use and 50+ punches. There will be a masseuse available, $40 for 1 hr and $20 for 1/2 hr. The cost $165 per person, unless you would opt for a top bunk or an air mattress and then the cost is $155. A $25 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your spot. Check-in is anytime after 4 on Thursday.
