All-Con a success

Well, it's Monday morning and we're all back at our regular lives now. The blitz of All-Con has passed and hopefully we all came out of it richer of friends, knowledge and, yes, Cool Stuff.

I had planned to blog so much more during the weekend. I should have known I would be so busy talking to people and running around that I'd barely have any time to blog. Ah well. Such is life and the fact that I didn't blog because I was busy talking to people about the Guild is not a bad thing One Little Bit!

All of our photos we took are uploaded to Flickr now under the tag allcon2009dfwcg. You can also check out the DFWCG group on Flickr to see who of our Guild Members attended All-Con. We're missing pics of one or two of us, but I hope to get those photos in soon. Since we were so busy talking to people we also didn't have as much time to take photos of all the amazing costumes walking by. Next year I would like to try setting up a better area for Photos so we can get All of you. There were truely some amazing pieces of work walking around this weekend. Thank you all for the inspiration!

And speaking of next year, I have informed All-Con that the DFWCG would like to continue to work with them next year and that we would like to step up our involvement. So if there's anything you can think of that you would like to see us offer at All-Con, please let us know. You can comment here, or also come see us at our Yahoo Groups board.

In the meantime, we will be having a meet and greet at Scarborough Faire for Opening Weekend, and we'd love to meet new people and chat. See our Events page on the website for all the details.

New friends

I just wanted to say that it was very nice meeting all of you yesterday. I really enjoyed hosting the Pattern Re-sizing panel and now that I've gone through it in real time with real people, I think I just might be able to finish that slide presentation with some additions that were brought up in the class. I think if I finish it, I may post it up on our guild website.

Don't forget to stop by our club table and introduce yourselves and tell us about your costumes! I'll continue to take pictures all day today. Hopefully I'll get to take more today than I did yesterday.

Also, please bring us your unwanted patterns and fabrics. We'd love to have any and all of it for our fabric swap. And who knows, maybe you'll find something you need while you're there, For Free!

Look for weekend Blogging

Hi all. This weekend is the much anticipated (by me anyways) All-Con convention in Dallas. I plan on being Very busy at and around our Club Table this weekend. In addition to greeting everyone who walks by, I plan on playing photographer for the Guild. We'd love to take Tons of photographs of All the great costumes around the con, so please stop by our table and indulge us!

I'll be posting all photographs on Flickr under the tag allcon2009dfwcg. If you search that tag, you'll be able to find each and every photograph I take. I'll also be giving out little Photo Op tags to people whose photograph I take and the tags will have the Flickr tag on them in case anyone forgets.

Also, if you've signed up for our Yahoo e-mail list, please let me know who you are. I have Guild Groupie tags for you to add to your Con Badge. You should be able to tell who of us are Guild Members by the badges we are wearing. And I'm working on getting other little special tags made for fun too, so even if you've resisted us thusfar, we'd still love to meet you and see what you're wearing.

Happy Con Prep!
