Common Questions Asked-->
Do we get out own table?....YES, you get your own 6-8ft table to FILL UP with all of your crafty goods!
Can we leave our stuff sit out all weekend?...YES, no packing up until Sunday! Don't worry, we lock the gym each night AND Melanie and Hannah sleep in the gym to keep it extra safe!
Can I bring something that needs to be plugged in?...YES, but make sure you bring an extension cord!! We are in a gym, so the plug-ins are far along the walls and we cannot guarantee you a spot by a plug in. We suggest you bring a surge protector, an extension cord and painters tape for the cord!
Does the Doodlebug bring any tools? We do bring a few tools from the store for everyone to use and share....these include our big shot machine, our accucut machine, a few punches, and our cricut machine (But be fair warned....we only have about 10 cartridges, so if you have one, you may want to bring yours!)
Does the Gym have WiFi?...YES!!
Are there snacks provided?...YES- by all the croppers!! When you bring snacks and drinks to share...you get a few extra prize tickets!!
Will the Photo Booth be back?...WHY YES IT WILL!!!
Will the Doodlebug set up a little store at the retreat? Yes we will!! The store is also open for regular business hours that weekend too! and YES...you will get your COUPON to use at the store too!!
