Happy National Scrapbooking Day
To celebrate Crop A While's Online Store is now open and we hope you will come shop with us!
With more than 20,000 products in inventory, it will take us a while to get most of them online. So in this first phase, we are starting with items we thought you might be running low on - adhesives, plain cardstocks and inks - as well as few other items. So head on over to the ONLINE STORE and check it out. We are really excited about this new adventure and hope you will like this new service!
PS. And don't forget that Mother's Day is coming up and Crop A While Gift Cards are always appreciated - also available online!

COMING SOON - Crop A While Online Store
We are very happy to announce that we are building Crop A While's online store. Products have been loaded into our system and we are busy attaching photos. The online store will be rolled out in phases. Essential products (we are sure many of you are running low on glues and double sided tapes) will be the first ones available. and then we will add other categories of products over the coming weeks. New releases of paper lines will also be added as they are available.
With Mother's Day just around the corner, we will also be adding Gift Cards in the early roll out.
Our target date is Saturday, May 2nd - National Scrapbook Day. Watch our website, newsletter and FaceBook page for more information - as it becomes available!

COVID-19 Precautions at Crop A While
As the coronavirus and COVID-19 are spreading around the world, we’re sure you, like us, have been implementing the strategies recommended by Heath officials.
For everyone's safety, the Crop A While team has disinfected all the Oasis tables, chairs, counters and equipment, as well as the cash counter and other surfaces frequently touched. The team also has supplies on hand to disinfect credit card terminals after each use.
On Friday, Ottawa’s chief medical officer, Dr. Vera Etches, issued a message urging residents to stay home unless necessary. In order to protect our team and clients, and to support efforts to stop (or at least slow) the spread of this virus through social distancing, Crop A While will be closed as of today, until next Tuesday, March 24. We will reassess the situation as new information becomes available.
As well, all classes and events through to the end of March are being postponed. If you are registered for the Spring Mega Crop on Saturday March 21, your registration fee will be carried forward to a future crop of your choice. As well, if you are registered for Heather Telford’s classes 'Watercolour on Black', Heather has confirmed that she will reschedule these popular classes once it is safe to do so.
We urge everyone to stay safe and, of course, take advantage of the extra at-home time to get your ‘crafty cap’ on.
See you soon, Carole & Tom.
