We are so thrilled that so many of you love our Fan Craft panels.
We have added several new types of craft panels this year.
These include such hands-on crafts as "Oh, Deer!" (making mini stuffies),
and panels about how to enhance your cosplay (our Pattern-Making panel about which there is already a thread; our millinery slide-show, "The Glad Hatter"; and our guide to Dickensian & Steampunk cosplay, "How to Hustle Your Bustle".
We also designed a couple crafts just for wee ones, for the Chibi Room
For crafts panels held in the Creation Station, and for our other most popular panels, such as Catboy's Webcomic panel, we realize that sometimes more of you will want to attend than can fit in our rooms or than we can affordably accommodate.
In the past, we had sign-up sheets for crafts panels. We no longer do.
Instead, folks will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis, but folks may line up only 30 minutes in advance for panels.
We hope that panelists and attendees will both be happier with this new arrangement.
