It's Class Registration day at BC Crop for Kids and there are few things we want you to know before registration opens at 7:00pm PST. We've covered all of these in the recent reminder emails, but we know some of you aren't reading your emails!!!

1. Registered croppers or holders of a Class Pass must have their registration order number handy in order to register for classes. This number is on the original confirmation email that you received when you registered for the event. Remaining class seats will be released to the general public later this summer. You may also sign up for classes at the event, though we recommend that you register early to avoid disappointment.

2. Some classes have been temporarily removed from the schedule because details have not been finalized, or at the request of the sponsor due to logistical issues. When we can be assured that a class will go ahead, we'll add it back to the online store and make an announcement.

3. YOU CAN REGISTER FOR AS MANY CLASSES AS YOU LIKE, but you can only register for one seat per class at a time, one person at a time. To register another person for the same class you must complete the checkout of your class registration and start a new order for the new person. You can order additional class kits for yourself using the same method.

4. If 2 classes you want are in the same time slot, you can register for both, attend one, and take the class kit for the other. All class kits come with detailed written instructions.

5. The class time for "Tis The Season with Piggy Tales" has changed to Sunday, 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM. The class can now be found here.

6. Payment can be made at checkout using PayPal, or you can mail a cheque to the address provided. Payments must be received and dated within 10 days of registration in order to guarantee your seat in the class. Complete payment instructions are provided at checkout.

*Edited to add:

7. As stated in previous emails to registered attendees, we regret that we are unable to answer emails to the address on June 18, as we are busy finalizing classes and prepping the shopping cart for the registration grand opening at 7pm. Inquiries will be answered on June 19. Thank you for your understanding.

Thanks everyone!

Just 7 days until BC Crop for Kids class registration opens for registered croppers and class pass holders. (what's a class pass? Skip the crop portion of the event, but get full weekend access to the event AND register for classes first, along with the crop-goers. You can purchase your class pass online.)

Class registration begins June 18 at 7pm PST.

Things to note:

1. You MUST have your original crop registration order # handy in order to register. The system will ask for the number, and you won't be able to proceed to checkout without it. This number was on your order confirmation email when you signed up for the BC Crop for Kids crop.

2. If you can't find this number, please email BEFORE June 18. We will not be able to respond to emails on June 18 because we'll be busy getting the shopping cart ready to launch at 7pm PST.

3. You will be able to register for multiple classes at one time, but you will only be allowed to register for one seat in each class at a time. If you are registering for a friend you will have to complete your registration and then create a new registration for your friend, in their name.

4. You can register for more than one class in the same time slot. You can't be in 2 places at once, but it does guarantee you a class kit, even if you don't attend the class.

5. As always, you will have 10 days to remit payment for the classes. We will accept Paypal payments, and cheques payable to BC Scrapbooking Crop for Kids.

Most of the classes have been added to the BC Crop for Kids website. Be sure to check back regularly to see the latest additions to the schedule. We are so excited about the buzz these classes have been receiving so far! Please register early to avoid disappointment.
