TeslaTablet1Everybody knows that Nikola Tesla was awesome, and that the Tesla coils are one of the coolest pieces of science out there, at least from a purely visual perspective. This bag bears a pair of Tesla coils with glow-in-the-dark lightning arcing between them on black cotton canvas.

This bag is available for purchase both in our Etsy shop, and on our website.

ElevenYou see, most patches, you know, only go to ten. You’re on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you’re on ten on your patch. Where can you go from there? Where? Nowhere. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, we put it up to eleven. One louder.

This sew-on patch is stitched in black and white on black cotton canvas, and is available in our webstore.

Our shop at the OtherWhere Market.

Our shop at the OtherWhere Market.

Just about two months ago, my friend Kathy mentioned to me she was thinking of hosting a holiday craft fair aimed at geeky and alternative interests.  Kathy runs the shop ARTsylum at Mill #5 in Lowell, MA, which is a fantastic little shop full of works by local artists, including Storied Threads. And it was at the Mill that she wanted to hold this fair.

There were a lot of things that might have made me say no to such an event. First year events are always a gamble. And she was putting it together on short notice, with little time to organize and advertise. But something told me this was something I should get in on, and so I said yes almost without hesitation.

Diagon Alley. Er, I mean, the row of shops at Mill # 5.

The event was on Saturday — and it exceeded my expectations! The Mill itself is amazing, for one thing. They are still renovating the space, but what they have done already is gorgeous, and the row of shops makes you feel like you’re walking down Diagon Alley.

And I finally got to actually see ARTsylum for the first time, and see my products in the shop beside the works of so many other wonderful artists!

On top of all of the great ambiance, the event was incredibly well attended. For six hours, we had a steady flow of traffic, both in the Mill as a whole, and in our little corner of the Market. We met a lot of new customers, people who hadn’t run into us before at conventions or ren faires, and did enough business that we’ve already made it know that we’ll be back again next year.
