Can I sign up for classes without attending the event?

Yes, if there are seats available, we will open up registration to the public in January 2024. There will be a slight increase in the price of the classes. Be sure to subscribe to our email newsletter so you will be notified of when this is available.

How can I see what classes I signed up for?

You can always log into your account at and see what you have registered and signed up for.

Will you have t-shirts, hoodies, and other crafty gear for sale at the event?

We will be offering a pre-sale of sweatshirts, t-shirts, etc., in a variety of fun designs and colors. This pre-sale is only available to those who are registered for the 2024 event. We strongly recommend that you pre-order what you want to ensure you get the style and size that works for you. We will not have a lot of extra stock at the event for purchase.

Can I visit the vendors during the event, even if I am not an attendee?

Yes! Please do! Be sure to stop by the registration desk to say “hello”. Most vendors are open Thursday 6-10p, Friday/Saturday 9a-10p and Sunday 9a-12p. See a list of vendors here. Please remember access to the ballroom and classrooms is for event attendees only.

Can I bring my family members or friends to Crop on the Cape?

We understand that many of you travel to the event with your family. However, due to space constraints and Emeral Resort regulations, the crop room/ballroom and classrooms are only for registered attendees. If your husband, wife, partner, children, relatives, or friends would like to visit the main crop/ballroom, that is acceptable, but they may not stay for extended periods of time.

What size is the table space I will be working in?

Two 8′ by 2′ 6″ tables are pushed together, and 4 people share that space. Each person has an area that is 4 feet by 2′ 6″ (30 inches).

Are Phantom Seats Available this year?

In 2024 phantom seats will not be available.

I understand this may be a surprise to some of our attendees. But let me explain our decision. In the past, we offered a limited number of “phantom seats” –an extra seat that could be purchased at your table to provide a bit more space. Today, interest in attending Crop on the Cape has increased dramatically, and a record number of new attendees have participated. We want to allow as many people to attend and experience the event as possible, so in 2024, we will not be offering any phantom seats.

Do I get to choose who I will sit with?

When registering, you will be able to list the names of the people you wish to sit with. If your group is larger than 4, please list as many as you can in your group, and we will do the best we can to accommodate. Please be sure everyone in your group lists the SAME people, the SAME first name and last name on their registrations.  As I am sure you can imagine, mapping out the seating chart is the trickiest part of this event. Our priority is that you are able to sit with your group of friends. We do our best to accommodate requests, but there are no guarantees. Thank you for understanding.

Do people attend alone?

Yes, there are actually a large number of people who come alone each year. Most end up making new crafty friends before the end of the weekend.

What payment options are available when registering?

You will be able to pay with either a credit card or PayPal. The full registration amount is due at the time of registration.

Can I register for myself and a friend?

Yes, You will be able to register for you and multiple people at the time of registration. Be sure to know everyone’s first name, last name, and email address. If the people you registered want to sign up for any classes or pre-order gear, please have them set up an account here and email us so we can add the Crop on the Cape membership to their account so they will have access to offers.

Can I sit in on a class with a friend who is registered?

Classes are only for those who have registered for that specific class.

What hours are the crop/ballroom open?

The crop/ballroom will be open from 6a-1a. Per regulations from the Emerald Resort, the crop/ballroom is no longer open 24 hours. To see the hours of the event registration desk and vendors, check out the weekend schedule.
