Black Ankh Design is a venture to bring the goth aesthetic to quilts and various other items that would usually be hard to find in a dark style.
Jayne started sewing at a very young age, but when she was introduced to quilting in 2016 something just clicked. She immediately wanted to make as many dark and gothic themed quilts as she could. Quilts can be such a large part of a person’s life and she wanted that for as many people as possible. Many quilts are made/gifted for major life events such as graduations or weddings and these quilts can become happy reminders to be handed down through family. She also wanted to create quilts that could be used and well-loved so she strives to make all of her quilts machine wash and dryable and sturdy enough to take daily use.
But it doesnt end with quilts! Black Ankh has plenty more great, gothic stuff! Check it all out on their Facebook page (linked above) or https://blackankhdesigns.com/

A note from GWE president David Lane:
" Richmond Comix means a lot to me, personally. Years ago, I was collecting a lot of BAD superhero comics (let's face it...that early Image run was mostly painful). I went in to Richmond Comix (which was my comic shop) and told them that I was done...I just wasnt enjoying the hobby anymore. They asked me to take a chance on a few indie comics...and Madman and Bone are TO THIS DAY my favorite comics. I went back ecstatic with my discovery of indie comics...and they then introduced me to SO MUCH INDIE AWESOMENESS over the months/years. They don't just sell comics...they KNOW comics...and they know their customers. In a way, it saved my geekiness. It's an HONOR to have them as a vendor at our convention."
I am a mom who simply loves making art in many different forms and sharing them with the world. In 2020, I was able to donate over 750 masks to people in need, as well as $500 to The Trevor Project. With the help of my toddler, I hope to be able to use my different forms inspired from my many years of medieval fighting and crafting to continue helping kids and people in need.

A cabal of risqué creativity, this fun-loving trio brings a diverse selection of their favorite crafts all lovingly created by them, for you, in exchange for beer money. The idea to start Beer Money stemmed from three best friend’s desire to do what they truly love, being together, crafting and drinking. This unholy alliance consists of Emily, a devil-child who loves 1950s kitsch, horror, snacks, and everything tacky and over the top. Then there is sweet earth-mother, Hillary. Her love for making plants and animals happy give her a gentle nature, but don’t get it twisted, she is not one to be f**ked with. When Robin was born, a fire planet collided with a green one to herald the birth of a little sprite who just doesn’t give a f**k but does it with love and hilarity. You can expect irreverent images with an occasional blast of social consciousness threaded through them. With the shared motto of “Always sippin’, never slippin’” Beer Money is a little bit kitsch, a little bit cheeky and a lot a bit of a good time!
