SJCC: Ted Raimi, Autographed

Minutes later (not the weeks it took to write this), I met Ted.


Ted      Hi! What's your name?

Me       My name is Stefanie. :)

T          Hi Stefanie :)

Me       [Pass him the crochet]

T          What—how interes—what—did you make this crazy piece of art? This is awesome!

Me       Yes, it's crochet.

T          You CROCHETED that?

Me       Yeah :D

T          Oh my god, that's crazy! How long'd it take you to make that thing?

Me       Just over a week.

T          that's it? You musta been working every minute of every day making that.

Me       I tried, but I had work :p

T          This is amazing, it's so cool!

Me       Thank you!

T          You're really talented. That's amazing. Do you crochet all the time?

Me       I do crochet and knitting.

T          You do?

Me       I specialize in this. I think I'm the only one on Google who [does this].

T          That's crazy. That's really, really good.

Me       Thank you :p

T          That's so impressive. Who else could crochet like that? Nobody! Do you do it with a needle?

Me       With a crochet hook, it's a really tiny hook. [I pull out the half-Billy again, slightly less shaky this time]

T          That's crazy. That is just the craziest thing I've ever seen. [down to business] All right. Ahm…you want me to sign this?

Me       Yes :)

T          Who am I makin' it out to?

Me       Stefanie, it's spelled with an F…

T          You know what, here, [to assistant] hand me a [she passes a sticky note pad] Thank you. Will you write your name down here? Get a little pencil…there might be one in the magic bag…

Me       [sing] I've got ooone!

T          You do? Good.

Fellow fan       She's prepared! :)

Me       [yes indeed, my backpack had a pen, pencil, and spare Sharpie ready to go :p ]

T          Right there. [sets up the paper, and I write my name as neatly and quickly as possible] You Are an artist, I can't even read that, o there we go Stefanie, I got it.

[starts writing, while I grin and watch]

T          Here you go.

Me       Thank you! How much—?

T          Uh, 45. Oh no! 35.

Me       [peel out the muneh]

T          Everyone's got change today, thanks. It was really nice to meet you and that's really impressive, thanks for showing me that :)

Me       XD

T          Super cool.


Then began the supersonic squeals and barely contained wiggle dances of joy…which, after the train ride became the car ride, turned into audible squeals and visible wiggle dances.

I still have free tickets available for the show in San Jose! There are many kinds of arts to see--performance, music, and of course visual things like mine! It is 21+, but if you or anyone you know is interested, send me an e-mail and I'll add you to the guest list!,

Thanks for faving my pic of Brent Spiner with the gift I made for him! =)

No problem! It's awesome that you got to meet him and give him something so special! I crochet portraits too, and one day I hope to give Bruce Campbell his portrait for being my first unofficial commission and first reTweet :D

It was seriously the best moment of my life, which might mean I'm a bit of a loser, lol, but it was amazing! And thats awesome he retweeted you, Bruce Campbell is awesome! I hope you get the chance to meet him and give it to him! Just follow the convention info and you'll surely find a chance to give it to him =) I have a plan to make/give art to every main actor on TNG, so far I've given something to Brent and Wil Wheaton retweeted my Wesley Crusher wristband so we exchanged emails and addresses and I sent him one. No word on if he got it though, I know he's busy but when I meet him at the next convention I'm going to bring him another and ask if he got it, then demand a pic of him wearing it, haha.

I am surprised your gallery doesn't get more comments. Your crochet work is impressive. Have you posted it on Craftster?

 i think they don't comment, because they are just stunned and can not find the right words. like me ^^

Thank you! I understand the anonymity, I only started these crochets recently. I have not heard of Craftster, but I'll go look into it! :)
