Crop at The Top


"Crop at the Top" is a 4 day-3 night crafting retreat that is open to everyone.  This is a the most hassle-free retreat you'll go on all year long!  You can spend the whole weekend working on your projects and doing what you came to do - crop 'til you drop.  What you won't be doing is cooking, cleaning, or dealing with the other stuff that can make going on a retreat more work than fun (meal planing, cooking, cleaning up, etc.).

Are you looking for a crafting group to join?   Want to learn a new technique?  Want to meet other fun and creative people?  Even if you are just looking to find some dedicated time to get projects done, you have an open invitation to join one of our Crop at the Top crafting weekends.
Whether you are a scrapbooker, stamper, quilter, knitter, chalk artist, into vinly, making home decor or any other type of crafting, The Crafty Elk Loge was designed with you in mind.  You get a personal dedicated work space, lodging, meals, access to tools and supplies, and more.

Come to make new friends or bring a group of your crafting besties with you.  Either way, you are warmly invited to join us on the farm in North Georgia mountains for a fun-filled time where your biggest worry is which embellishments would look best on your layout.
