The crop that I LOVED the most was put on by a lady named Patty McGovern-Pugh. http://www.pattyscustomdesigns.com/
She doesn't have her all of her new crop schedule listed yet, but it would certainly be worth checking out when it comes out. This crop blew me away with the niceness of the people, vendors, classes, food available, tools available, prizes,etc. It has been by far the most organized and fun!
I loved your designs and the crops were so much fun! Can't wait for the next one. You have a loyal cropper and I told all my friends about all the prizes and give-a-ways!
Love Love Love your classes! Your page kits are beautiful and so easy to put together, saved me a lot of time!
I will be purchasing more from you! See you at the next CKC
Wow I wish I would have signed up sooner, your crop is sold out again, but I will put my name on the waiting list for your next crop so I don't miss out.
ERC CROP & SHOP ARTICLE FROM THE ERC NOW NEWS PAPER
A popular hobby has spawned a new kind of fundraiser for ERC Resource & Referral. The first two ERC Crop and Shop events each attracted 100 dedicated scrapbookers and stampers and raised about $1,000 for ERC. All of this began when ERC executive director Reva Wywadis attended one of Patty McGovern-Pugh’s workshops and talked with her about teaching a class for grandparents as part of the ERC life books program.
McGovern-Pugh, a national scrapbooking trainer who recently moved to Topeka from Dallas, has made fundraising events a priority wherever she’s been. As a designer for manufacturers, she has plenty of contacts in the scrapbooking field and is able to round up lots of prizes and give-aways for the events. "I like throwing big events," she said, adding that her workshops are like a party, complete with themes and decorations. Participants pay around $30 to participate, and they will get a goodie bag full of products when they arrive. Treat bags are brought to the tables plus there are give-aways every hour and drawings for special prizes and a grand prize. "Remember it’s all about pampering you," her website says. "We want to pamper you and make sure you have a great time at our Crop and Shops!" Nancy Lindberg, an ERC board member who attended both ERC Crop and Shop events, confirms that happens. "Everybody had a great time," she said about both events. Events are an all-day affair and then some, typically running from about 8 a.m. to midnight. "Once people get their scrapbooking things out they really want to stay," McGovern-Pugh said. Getting ready for each event takes a lot of time and planning on her part, but one of the biggest challenges in Topeka has been finding a large enough location. The first event was held at Shawnee County Club; the second, at the Holiday Inn Holidome then the Kansas Expocentre, Ag Hall. She fits its all in with her appearances at national conventions and her own custom design work.
