Questions? We’ve Got Answers!

What airport will I fly into?

The event is in Cole Camp, Missouri. So you can fly into the nearest airport, which is Kansas City (MCI) Airport, or you can drive. Cole Camp is a good 2 hours from Kansas City, so if you fly in you may want to rent a car or arrange transportation from the airport to Cole Camp. Transportation is not included in the cost of your ticket. But we will allow people (in the group) to coordinate with each other on ride-sharing or renting cars together.

Where should I stay?

There are AirB&B options available near Cole Camp or Sedalia which is a short drive away. There are also hotels in Sedalia. Once you purchase your ticket, you will be added to a group of attendees, and many are coordinating where they are staying and sharing rides. Many of our attendees find ways to stay together and some even have crafting parties in their downtime.

Do you offer refunds?

Due to the expense of the event, we do not offer refunds. If your plans change and you cannot attend, you will get access to the virtual items and replays. And your swag bag will be shipped to you. Please reach out to us at if you find you are unable to attend in order to make sure we have your correct shipping address on file.

What meals are included?

Stay tuned for more information. But typically we offer lunch to our attendees each day and have one dinner on the last night that we provide as well. There will be some meals on your own and we will provide some places locally that have AMAZING food options for you.

What do I bring?

Just bring yourself and anything you’d normally take on a trip. You don’t need any supplies. All supplies will be provided. Be prepared to be treated like a painting queen for 3 days!
