Although not required: For Friday, we are encouraging costume day to go along with our Masquerade Ball theme. For Saturday, we are encouraging participants to wear their SFAC 2022 T-Shirts.
Several vendors will be onsite throughout the event for your convenience providing supplies for your projects. Make sure you check with the vendors at the beginning of the crop about payment methods, so you can be prepared. Our vendors also provide us with classes and free make & takes. Don’t miss out on the cool projects at each of their booths.
Our vendors offer amazing classes each year! Most of these classes do require a small fee. The vendors will contact participants as classes are ready for registration. All class registrations/payments will be handled by the teacher.
We will also have classes provided by our volunteers that will be free to the participants. Registration for the free classes will open by the end of February 2022. We encourage you to sign up ahead of time for any classes you are interested in. Seating is limited and is based on a first come first serve basis. If any seats are still available the day of the event, then signups will be offered at the event. Please do not rely on this option if you really desire to take a certain class. Classes can fill fast. Donations are always accepted at these classes.
GRAND PRIZES, AUCTIONS, AND CONTESTS
We will have multiple large Grand Prize Raffle items you may wish to compete for. The proceeds from the raffle are donated to CFF (Cystic Fibrosis Foundation) and all of the items are donated by our vendors and Sponsors. Tickets for the raffle items can be purchased at the event for $2/each, $10/6 tickets, or $20/13 tickets. Tickets can also be acquired by donating individually wrapped snacks or auction items. (max of 2 tickets through this method)
We will have two separate auctions during our 2022 event. An Online Silent Auction on Facebook will be held for a week prior to and concluding Friday March 25 evening. All of the auction items (which will also be displayed at the event) are donated by vendors, sponsors, and participants. If you would like to make a contribution of any brand new or very gently used item or grouped items valued at a retail price of $30 or more, we would greatly appreciate your donation! Items need to be turned in by March 12th so we can post them to the Online Silent Auction Facebook page. Winners of the Online Silent Auction can claim their items Saturday at the event, or pay additional fees for the items to be shipped to their house directly.
We will also host a Mystery Auction Saturday afternoon. For this fun event, participants are encouraged to bring a new crafting item, wrapped appealingly (BLING IT UP!!), and submit it to the SFAC table by Saturday morning. The idea of this event is to get people to bid the most on your item. Remember, the item will not be known, so the fancier the box/bag, the more curious people will be and want to keep bidding on it! Basic Details for mystery auction: Scrapbooking and/or quilting items only; Items must be at least $20 value, new, and completely wrapped; The participant that donates the item that brings in the most $$$ will receive a special prize.
We will be having a few contests throughout the event. These will include: Table Décor Contest, Costume Contest, & a Thank You Card Contest.
Table Décor: Participants will have Thursday evening and Friday morning to decorate their table for our annual table décor contest. Friday afternoon we will judge the tables. Table décor needs to incorporate: Scrapping for a Cure, Cystic Fibrosis, and/or Masquerade Ball Theme. Keep in mind that our cropping tables are 6’ circles.
Costume Contest will be Friday evening, with judging held shortly after dinner. Costumes can be as simple or elaborate as you desire.
Thank You Cards can be made throughout the event (not beforehand), and judging will be held Saturday mid-day. The only requirement for the submitted cards is that they must fit inside a 5x7 envelope and must follow one of three sketches provided at the event. Participants can submit up to two different cards for the contest. After judging, the Thank You cards can be donated to SFAC and will be used to mail out to our sponsors and donors thanking them for their help with our event.

An annual crafting retreat to raise money for the non-profit organization, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, in hopes that one day soon CF will stand for Cure Found!
The following details will introduce you to our crop and why we do what we do. Scrapping for a Cure events are a little different from your typical crops. ALL proceeds go to Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. All workers are volunteers who donate their time, money, and energy to the success of these events. The success of the event also rests with our amazing sponsors. We rely heavily on donations for our event food, supplies, door prizes, auction items, and participant gifts. And ultimately the success of our fundraising is because of our generous participants. We have raised over $70,000 for CFF over the past 10 years because of the dedication and generosity of everyone that supports our events.
Scrapping for a Cure's Mission is to create HOPE for those with Cystic Fibrosis through creative memory keeping. All of our proceeds go directly to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help to develop new medical treatments and to find a cure for CF.
