Put me down as a maybe, Jon. I'm not entirely sure what I have that I can work on.
If anyone's got snaps, then I could finally finish my Gunner's second holster... I don't think it'd be wise for me to try to spray paint my Gunner armor and then try to get it home, though... Might bring my cracked Biker belt and see about getting a more permanent fix on there... Oh, I could maybe trim my TK belt and stitch off the extra canvas... Looks like I have a lot of little things that never seem to get done at home.
Did someone say they were bringing a sewing machine? I've got a few patches I want to zap onto some things, too. :)

Thanks Chris! I may bring a sewing machine. I'll have to check with Jessi and see if she'd be cool with me bringing it. As for the snaps and those things. I'll make sure I'll bring them with. I've got a handful of them left over from the snowie build.

Awesome Blueram! That's fantastic! Looking forward to seeing you!

Tom, if you can make it, that would be great....even just for awhile. The whole day will kind of be an open house thing. So there will be folks coming and going I'm quite sure.

I'll bring my soldering crap, and my box of 286 Dremel accessory bits.

Anyone bringing speakers for music?
Many bothans died to bring you this post...the tearing of ligaments and almost the loss of a TK's finger...

Looks like I am definitely in and I'll be bringing a friend who would be interested in doing an emperor's hand Mars Jade/Arica.

And if anyone has a spare Imperial Officer's Cap (Black) or Belt they would like to unload, feel free to bring them!
See you Sunday!
