One of the amazing things to come out of Reesa's cancer recovery has been the SpinAThon, a fiber endurance event organized by freyapax. She and several other spinners, knitters, and weavers are working around the clock, sponsored by PayPal donations, to help cover some of the sudden medical bills we've received.

They started work at midnight, and currently stand at almost 35 hours donated. Only a few more donations will put us into time promised by local celebrity skzbrust for book signings and musical entertainment. If you're in the Austin area (and we get enough donations), you can come by the event and meet the spinners, Reesa, Steve and I tomorrow. Details will be listed SpinAThon as they become available (i.e. - once freyapax gets the chance to count the donations, and post her address), or you can contact me privately.

Steven Brust is on for tomorrow afternoon at 1:00pm central daylight time (GMT -5). He'll be there until he gets tired or we run out of donations, whenever happens first. We'll be streaming his performance so if you've never heard Steve play music, now is your chance! Show up at the Round Rock location tomorrow or tune into the webcam...

Heh. On the website, I saw "fiber arts endurance event." Here you wrote "fiber endurance event." Not the same!

Good luck to the event though. I hope they raise lots o'money.
