Discworld Party -  The Seamstress Guild has announced that, due to a series of unfortunate events beyond their control, there will be no official Seamstress Guild party at Sasquan. However, many of their members will be there with bustles on, and they have volunteered to help with the Discworld meets, games, exhibits, panels, dances and events at this convention. There are quite literally hundreds of parties at a Worldcon, both big and small, so folks won't be lacking for entertainment.
