Special Guests - Masters of Lightning
MuseCon is please to welcome back the Masters of Lightning and their musical Tesla coils. We listened to them with excitement and wonder at MuseCon2 as their Tesla coils created both music and lightning at the same time!
Special Guest - Sharon Winsauer aka CrazyLaceLady
MuseCon is extremely pleased to welcome Sharon Winsauer. Sharon has been knitting for more years than she cares to count. She learned to spin in 1996 with a drop spindle, spinning dog hair. Hand-spun black alpaca inspired her to try her hand at designing lace in 1998. Lace has become Sharon's passion. Her designs are unique, including 'picture' shawls such as Heere Be Dragone and shaped shawls like Just a Butterfly. She has over 40 published lace patterns, all unique in style and design.
Special Guest - Elise Matthesen
Elise Matthesen lives in Minnesota, surrounded by beads, metal, words, music, and people she loves. She's been a professional jewelry artist for more than a decade. Her named jewelry pieces have inspired others to write novels, poems and short stories; one of them, "Tideline" by Elizabeth Bear, won the Hugo award for Best Short Story in 2008. Matthesen was nominated for a World Fantasy Award in 2009 "for setting out to inspire and for serving as inspiration for works of poetry, fantasy, and SF over the last decade through her jewelry-making and her 'artist's challenges'." She has a hearing impairment, Crohn's disease, fibromyalgia, arthritis, attitude, ingenuity, numerous publication credits, and many pairs of pliers.
