I don't know how CC works because I've never been to one before, but I'd be willing to volunteer some time to be on panels about sewing technique and using commercial patterns. (I don't feel confident enough in my pattern drafting or block making skills, so I wouldn't do those) I don't have professional credentials, though, I'm just a student.
I would be amazingly excited if you would be willing to teach some sewing techniques, etc. There will be many first time Costume-Con attendees this year and I just know it would be very popular. I will try to follow up with you sooner rather than later.

P.S. I'm the Con-Chair.
