A new venue is needed. In st paul, there was no air conditioning, we needed more scrapbooking vendors and mixed media demos. The bathrooms were so nasty, we need more room at the crop tables, carts to help bring items in, the staff was amazing. I do believe wifi and power should be worked into the pricing of admission. There were people using power and didnt pay for it. The door prizes drawings should be separated from the ones who bought the 3 day crop tickets from the ones who bought 1 day scrapbooking passes. Loved all the make and takes and free items for being part of the crop. The costume party and table decorating was awesome! There should be a free to a good home table. You put items you have but dont use to give to others to use. Early bird shopping was awesome. One vendor stayed until the end of the crop so if you needed paper, stickers you could stock up.
I loved the crops but theirss pages but there were so few scrapboo seemed to be fewer big prizes than ever. also, I took the travel journal class thinking it was for travel when it was simply a planner class and not useful to me. Nice people but misleading title. I did like the class on scrapbooking Happiness. There were so few scrapbooking classes compared to the overwhelming number of card classes, I wish there was a better balance of classes and fewer planner classes.I think the cleanliness, exhibits and organization were stellar. Just wish there was more for my craft.
I liked make and takes and the Thursday make and take night along with Friday and Saturday crops were fun. Quality of classes varies. I went to 5 classes. Power hour, Elegant Vellum Floral card, and Happy Birthday Waterfall flip album were organized classes. a trio in bloom was disorganized as well as Bloom and Grow. We had 2 classes in the A building and the 1st one we were late to because we had no idea there was another building. We had 1 volunteer that pointed us in the wrong direction and another volunteer who walked us over to the crop area for the class (no classes held there). More signs and volunteers that are trained would have been helpful. Also, I printed the Mesa Workshops for Friday and Saturday, it could have listed what building each of the rooms were in. The workers in the crop area were fantastic! It was a lot of fun, lots of prizes, good music. We brought our own food since concession choices and quality are not good.
Not sure if you can help me. A lady named Lana helped in the Heartfelt Creations class on Saturday and it was her friend who was hit in the crisswalk. Some ladies at Heartfekt Creations would like to send her a card. Is it possible to get her name and address? Thanks. Terry Law
Learned how to make a book with the water fall but not enought time to finish. The calligraphy was interesting but not time in the class. Please give us enough time to finish a class andnot rush a person through it. Love the expo and the shopping
Would suggest sitting area near entrance. More closed areas for classes. I was fortunate to get a seat on front row for both classes I attended, but anyone past first row very likely had difficulty hearing our speakers. My first Expo and I plan to come again
The classes were great. I picked up some new techniques. The only thing I didn't like was the show floor closed at the same time my last class ended. It would be nice if the show floor closed at least 1 hour or so after the last class of the day.
This was my first time. It was a lot to take in but enjoyed what I seen. But I think when getting tickets someone might have mentioned the number game the announcements were not clear. Might have been to sound and maybe the announcer might speak slower and clearer.
Booths not large enough. Hard for handicap people to get in booths. Class rooms? quality poor. Unable to hear in some classes due to loudness of other classes. Classes need to be held in rooms not curtained areas.I will not take another class, nor will my friends until classrooms are rooms and not curtained areas.
