  1. Omg! I would love to attend this, but a teacher’s salary, in my neck of the woods, doesn’t allow for it. I sure wish there would be one in Missouri! That one I could manage!

    • I agree with you Tina. I’m a teacher from WV, and our pay is not very good. I would love this experience though. I watched everyday through youtube. I will probably do the same this year too. At least I can live it through Melody Lane and Ken’s Kreations.

  2. Same question as previous person. Are there any extra fees such as class etc? Are cricuts provided during classes?

  3. Where will it be? What hotel is closest to the event? Very interested. Will there be other similar events at other locations like last year? I attended the one in Chicago & really enjoyed myself.

    • Last year the event was in the hotel (Grand America). It was a very lovely venue. Guess we have to wait until the registration opens next week to find out where it’s going to be this time! Can’t wait to hear 🙂

  4. While this is terrific, $499 seems really high. What about having these events in some major city’s around the country, so people don’t have to travel to this location?

    • I know that fee sounds high but I went last year and I came home with far more than $499. worth of products. They even gave us the brand new Maker. Cricut was very generous with the bags of free materials. The meals were really delicious, too. The only thing that was really a cost was the hotel and it was very luxurious. There were cocktail parties with live music each evening for meet and greets.The Cricut people were fantastic and so very knowledgeable. If you can swing the cost it is very worthwhile.

  5. Will cricut only be doing this in the US or would they also consider coming into Canada? Specifically Winnipeg Mb..😁

  6. I’m on my second Cricut machine. I received for my birthday and just finished setting up my Cricut Maker…this sounds like a fun and educational way to spend 2-1/2 days!

  7. Would love to attend! It sounds like it would be a great opportunity to learn more ways to use my cricut!

  8. Excited about the idea. Will the accommodations be reasonably priced or are the other hotels nearby? Heard that last year it was at the Grand American – hard to justify the $500 price of conference and $400 / night for hotel room.

    • The Grand America wasn’t $400 a night. It was a little pricey, but so worth it! But, there are lots of hotels very near by. I don’t know about this year, but last year we were given a lot of supplies to take home.

  9. Question for anyone who has been before,
    I would be coming alone and I don’t know anyone, is it set up to get to know new people?

    • I’m going by myself. I don’t mind because by the end I know we’ll have a lot of friends by the end.

    • Most people last year were by themselves. I plan to go again by myself. Well my other half is coming to SLC, but will be doing hiking and stuff while I’m at “arts and crafts camp.” LOL

  10. I would love love to go!!!! If in case the stars align and I am able to go do I need to bring my Cricut Maker for the events? Just wondering. Thanks.

  11. I can’t wait for this!! Sounds like so much fun!! I have never attended a Cricut event. Will there be a limited amount of tickets available? I’m anxiously waiting for registration to open.

  12. I’m all in! I’ll be by myself and am looking forward to making new friends, too. When and how do we sign up? Thank you Cricut for offering this opportunity.

  13. When will tickets go on sale? I do not want to miss the opportunity to attend if at all possible. Thank you! Exciting things happening with Cricut!

  14. I have only owned my Cricut for a few months but I absolutely LOVE it!!! I’m already wanting to start my own business with it. This event sounds like an amazing way to get hands on experience and from the experts, how exciting! My only concern is the cost. Is there any type of financial assistance for people who this event would very much benefit that might have a little bit of a problem coming up with all that cash. It seems a little bit pricey.

  15. Do we have any additional information yet? Hoping I dont miss registration.

    Anyone know hotel info etc?

  16. I was told that it was going to happen last Thursday most likely, but now I’m wondering what the hang up is. I hope this is still going to happen. I would be nice to have confirmation of my spot so I can buy my plane ticket and book a hotel room.

  17. I would so love to call, but I just looked at an 8 day cookie cruise, the cruise including everything (other than transportation) is $1,100. I am quite sure I could sell my husband on the 8 day cruise, where he could come with me than 2 1/2 days for $500.

    I hate to say it, cause I love my cricut and I spend tons on supplies but you need to bring the cost down and maybe schedule it in several parts of the country.
