LAST CROP at the OLD Memory Mania

Some of the croppers this past Friday night took a sentimental picture of their LAST crop at the Old Memory Mania & plans to scrap it for posterity!!!!! How sweet is that!!!! There was LOTS of excitement talking about cropping at the NEW Memory Mania in he Masterpiece STUDIO!!!! Thanks Cheryl for sharing the photo & notes:

This is a picture of our last crop in the "old" store. We certainly had fun. Unfortunately, I look like I have been up since 2:00 AM (I had); several of us called in quits early.

I took some pics of the old store for a layout of the old MM...that layout is scheduled for completion in 2015-LOL! My hubby says he now understands my hobby when he saw that I had plans to scrapbook my scrapbooking. He (teasingly) says that scrapbooking feeds itself.

We've been trying to get some feedback over the last few months for future Crops. . . As you know the crop fee has been $10 since 1999, wow, i can't think of anything else that is the same price today as it was in 1999. Since this time, we've incurred the rising prices of hostess fees, prices of supplies for the make/take, electricity, etc. so we must follow suit with the other stores & raise our price of crops to remain in business. AND, another way to think of it is where can you go & spend a Friday night having so much friend for less than $20???

Here are your choices, and we'd love to hear your feedback.

Option 1: Crop fee of $15 and includes use of all cricut cartridges in our library (currently only George is included in the price of the crop).

Option 2: Crop fee of $20 & includes use of all cricut cartridges in our library AND a light meal (Subway, La Mestiza, Domino's, Spaghetti Shop).

Also, we will have 2 spots for croppers that like to STAND & crop at the Cafe Bar-anyone interested in that-i rarely am able to sit & crop & wondered if I'm the only WEIRDO out there-hehe.

Happy Scrappin'

I think that you should offer both options to the customers. Those who want a meal would pay $20 and those who didnt want a meal would only pay $15! You could ask if they wanted the meal when they sign up for the crop or at the beginning of the crop and then order food accordingly! The customers get the best of both worlds! Just a thought!

I agree with Krisi. If you offer the meal, and pre-decide what it would be that week, we could decide when we sign up if we want the meal or not. I know there may be times I would jump at the idea of the meal being provided and already decided for me (I hate deciding what to eat!!); but then there are times it may be something that I don't particularly care for that week, and I would love the option not to have to pay for something I wouldn't eat. Just my two cents worth. Can't wait to see that new store and Masterpiece Studio!

I agree with Kristi and Michelle. I think you should offer both.

I've been thinking about this and agree with the other ladies. If it works for you to offer both options when we sign up, that would be great; we would make the choice when we call in for the crop. If both options are too much, than I would prefer option 1. Last Friday night we had 12 ladies cropping and I think it might get complicated if you did something like Subway. I would like to have the option to opt out of the meal if it is something I don't care for. The more I think about it, the more I think it would be better to have both options or option 1. Just option 2doesn't appeal to me. Thanks for thinking of us and asking for feedback.

I agree too because EVERY time I go, I end up going get something to eat so this would be great to have it included in the cost. I remember crops in the way, way past had a meal included. It would be nice to see that option return. But I also agree with the option of not including a meal. Thanks for asking.
