Re: Behind the Seams: Fur E

For anyone who likes the novelty of the Fur E, I would be happy to make more on commission! Just send me the panels for the case :) I have some of the same Marmot fur still in stock, but there are many faux fur options I could use instead (Real cat fur is tricky though, legally speaking, and I don't...

Re: TR BBQ "2nd-10th" - Official Thread - July 23, 2016

Amusing side note: A couple of years back we had an entrant in the American Homebrewers Association competition who had his package returned by UPS, looking like it had been run over by a truck... there was literally a tire mark up the middle of it! All the bottles were broken, of course. Fun fact:...

I like the direction of the t-shirt design! Just brainstorming, a few musings: - the color might look good if it is a little bit brighter of a blue - would three be a better number of magnifying glasses? - maybe one of the magnifying glasses could have something techy, like a laptop or PC or circui...

Also, the beach technically has enough space for pitching tents without being too close to the crumbling edge, but they'd have to be set on lumpy, sharp beach grass, so I'd suggest cots at the very least (unless you dig plant acupuncture). http://i.imgur.com/MR8Tbo9l.jpg Or at least, that's what it ...

I don't want to complicate stuff too much with the shirt thing, but I can browse through our sample shirts at my workplace and hopefully find ones that are agreeable, depending on what people are looking for. Soft and thin material, tie-dye, less-saturated colours, etc. could each be possible. We ha...

I know everyone thanks me for coming early (minus one year) and putting to getting the core of the feast. I, however, would like to thank everyone for being so very welcoming to me back this year even though there were a few changes. Really, I missed the event and the people a great deal last year....
