From last weekend's Time Travelers' Weekend, showing off our Time Lord Seal Scarf.

From last weekend’s Time Travelers’ Weekend, showing off our Time Lord Seal Scarf.

This weekend is the final weekend of the Connecticut Renaissance Faire! That means just one more Halloween Knight – complete with fire joust! One more chance to see Shakespeare Approves before he leaves New England! And ONE MORE WEEKEND for clearance Storied Threads garb! This weekend is the very last time we’ll be selling garb in our booth — by the spring faire, we will be selling nothing but embroidered patches, bags, scarves, and other geekery.  All of our garb will be priced to sell, and we hope to move it all out before we pack up Sunday night!

ValknutThe original meaning of the interlocked triangles now called a Valknut has been lost to us, but its prominence in Norse carvings and decoration is undeniable. We have stitched it here in shades of gray on gray cotton flannel, to mimic the look of carved stone.

This scarf is available in our Etsy shop, and on our website. We will also have a few available for sale at The Connecticut Renaissance Faire this weekend.

Tudor Rose

Debuting this new scarf at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire seemed like perfect timing! We even took advantage of the location to use one of the Faire’s stages as the backdrop for our photo.

In 1485, Henry Tudor defeated King Richard III in battle, thus ending the War of the Roses. As King Henry VII, he married Elizabeth of York, and symbolically combined the red rose of Lancaster and the white rose of York into one sigil — the Tudor Rose.

This scarf is stitched with a Tudor Rose on black cotton flannel, and is available in our Etsy shop and on our website.

ctrf-mapWe’ve been spending the week getting ready for what looks like will be an absolutely gorgeous second weekend at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire! We’ve been building up our scarf selection, as we let it dwindle over the summer. And we’re making as many bags and patches as we can, marking down our clearance garb, and plotting new and amazing layouts as we do so.

Last weekend, we had quite a few people mention that they had some trouble finding us, so I found this map to share with you. See that little vendor booth circled in red? The Booth at the End of the Lane, as my friend Michelle dubbed us last Sunday? That’s us! We’re the very last vendor booth before you reach the joust field, before you turn the corner to the gaming area.

Come find us! Bring your friends! Bring your friends’ friends! You won’t be disappointed.

ArcaneLoreThe best books are the hardest to find. Buried in used bookstores and the locked rooms of libraries, full of secrets and whispers and bound in who-knows-what. Just be careful – some pages are best left unread.

This new Geek Merit Badge design is available as a patch in our Etsy shop and on our website, and is available as a sticker on Redbubble.
