     rop Connection,started by a mom and two daughters, began out of a God-given idea to provide a more excellent scrapbooking event.  Crop Connection offers an experience like no other:

  • Every January and July (sometimes June)

  • 3 day weekend

  • Personal cropping space (5 feet long x 30 inches wide)

  • Giveaways

  • Special treats

  • Convenient meals


Once you meet us, you will realize that we LOVE making new friends and having fun! Hosting Crop Connection has provided a platform for us to combine our passions into an incredible journey.

Luke 6:38 (KJV)

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.
