See these? These are my embroidery machines. Pretty sexy machines, right?
Here’s the thing, though. Last week, one of them broke, and had to go into the repair shop. And the guys at the repair shop wound up sending it back to the manufacturer to have a motor replaced. They haven’t gotten it back yet.
Yesterday morning, the second machine broke. A completely different kind of broken, and when we took it to the repair shop and plugged it in, repair guy Fred said, “Well, I’m unfamiliar with THAT noise. I’ll have to open it up and see what’s going on.”
I haven’t heard anything back from Fred yet.
And unfortunately, between this and being away for 4 days for family Thanksgiving next week, I can almost guarantee I’m going to fall behind on orders. When I get back on Monday from Super Megafest, I’ll see what outstanding orders can be filled out of stock left from the show, but I know it won’t be everything. So, please — have patience with me? Storied Threads is a small business (it’s literally just me and my husband in the studio) and a set-back like this can be catastrophic for us. But patience from our customers can make all the difference. And I promise — the minute I get even one machine back in the studio, I’ll be working as fast as I can, to get orders out the door and off to all of you.
Thanks for understanding.

Whether you come to the Norse god of mischief through mythology or through popular culture, there is room in his army for all of his devoted followers. And travelling the nine realms — be it by Bifrost or by feathered cloak — can be fraught with peril, so make sure you’ve got a bag to carry all of your emergency supplies in!
Technically, this is an older item that we had replaced with our text-only version of the Loki’s Army bag. But, we’ve had some requests recently for this style, and so decided it was worth bringing back before the holiday shopping season begins! Though we haven’t yet had a chance to make and photograph them, you can also purchase this design on a tablet or laptop size bag — just shoot me a message if you’re interested, and I can make that for you as well.

We are very excited to announce that we’ll be taking part in the first OtherWhere Market, in Lowell, MA! This holiday shopping event at Mill #5 is being geared towards geeks of all stripes, and we will be there with bags, scarves, patches, and maybe even a few last TARDIS stockings, if we have any left by then.
In addition, my husband, Michael Bailey, will be there selling copies of the first three volumes of his Action Figures series of books. It’s a really amazing superhero YA series, and would make a great holiday gift for the young aspiring geek in your life, so you should check them out!

All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts.
This design is available as a sew-on patch through our website and our Etsy shop, and is also available as a sticker at Redbubble.
