Thank you for helping us get the word out.

There will be a special Seamstress Guild Party in honor of Terry Pratchett on Friday night. It is the special opening event for the con and done at his request. (We threw such a party for him at WorldCon in 2003 and he had so much fun he asked us to do it again). More information can be found at the Seamstress Guild yahoo board:

Men and women are welcome to the board where we are planning both the party and our costumes.

See you there,
