What a crop!
Wow - what a day we had on Saturday! First of all I just want to thank you all for coming along because without you there wouldn't have been a crop. Despite being in the classroom all the time I at least I got to see everyone, next time we have the fabbo Mandy Webb back with us teaching so you'll get a break from me!! The energy and enthusiasm of everyone was what kept me going after only 2 hours sleep (plus a few cans of Red Bull!!) so thank you once again - we get such lovely people at our crops!
I also want to thank my parents, Dad for keeping everyone supplied with tea, coffee and cake and Mum for running errands and spending time with everyone in the cropping room. A HUGE thank you to Pauline for running the shop for me (because I couldn't be in two places at one time!) I've never run things as smoothly or as accurately as you did all day, consider yourself booked for next time if you're free! I also want to thank Dave for putting up with a house full of boxes for the past week and for then shipping them out to the crop and back again at the end of the day. And last of all thank you to our boys for being so incredibly well-behaved, I forgot they were even there!
Anyway - Oscar speech over!! Ready to do it all over again? Our next crop is November 24th and we have only one or two places left if you would like to join us, you can book online through the shop (link is on the right of here). I'm going to start releasing the first of the classes this week, probably Friday evening so be sure to get yourself booked on quickly so you can grab yourself some amazing classes.
As I didn't get to spend much time just chatting with everyone during the crop I thought I'd ask those of you who were there on Saturday for feedback - what did we do well and what could we improve on for next time? I've already thought of a couple of improvements, like having squash available for those who don't drink tea or coffee (or are sick of it after 12 hours!) and having a full hour set side for lunch so we can all stop and take a rest but I'd really like to know your thoughts. If you weren't with us at the weekend, I'm still really interested to know what do you look for in a good crop and what really irritates you?
Take care, Karen (with achey feet and sore back!! LOL!)
