Guests of Honor

All amazing to one who majored in math at Rice University and computer science at the University of Colorado to avoid writing papers. Her latest novel is Ash and Silver from Penguin Random House.

- Kass McGann
Founded in August 1997, Reconstructing History is one woman's dream to bring information on historic clothing to the public and make this data available worldwide. During the past nine years, our method for achieving this goal has changed. From selling replica clothing to sharing information on extant garments to writing instructions for beginners and posting dress diaries, Reconstructing History has grown and evolved. We hope with each change, we have helped more people understand historic clothing and able to reconstruct their own.
- Tiffany Toland-Scott
Tiffany Toland says she was "all but born with a brush in her hand." As a child, she always knew she wanted to be an artist and spent hours painting and drawing to increase her artistic skills. To this end, she dropped out of high school to focus more on her artwork, and she obtained a GED shortly after her sixteenth birthday.
For a short time she attended art school with an eye toward earning a degree in game design, but she quickly realized that it wasn't the life for her. Instead, she began promoting and selling her artwork on her own.
Her work has since been licensed for a variety of products and has been purchased worldwide.
