otherwhere-promoOur next and final show is coming up!

The OtherWhere Holiday Affaire is Saturday, December 10 at Mill No. 5 in Lowell, MA starting at noon. This is a great show featuring local artists and crafters specializing in offbeat wares, and it’s hosted by one of the coolest venues we’ve ever worked in Mill No. 5, which has been designed to look like a street in Victorian London.

And this is a special show for us because it’s our last one. We’re going online only for the foreseeable future, and we may return to doing conventions, renaissance faires, and shows like OtherWhere sometime down the road, but until then you can always find us online.

We’re very sad that our preferred candidate, Leslie Knope, did not win the presidential election. VERY sad. But on the bright side, there’s still a chance for Leslie to become the first women president. That’s good news, right?


knope-wyattAnyway, now that the 2016 election is over (finally!), we will be retiring our Knope/Wyatt 2016 patches. HOWEVER! We will be updating them in anticipation of the 2020 election, so they will return in a new form. Until we update the patch, we will keep the original version up on out website.

If you happen to be at Rhode Island ComicCon this weekend, we will have a special opportunity for you. We have three Knope/Wyatt 2016 patches in stock we’re looking to clear out, and they will be bargain priced at a mere $2 each! It’s first come, first served on these clearance-priced patches, so get there early if you want to snag one.

Please be aware this bargain pricing is an RICC exclusive offer and any patches ordered through the website will be full priced at $9.

If you want to take advantage of a few more bargains, visit our booth at RICC because we’ll have a lot of stuff price to move and we’ll be offering a five percent discount on purchases totaling $50 or more, and a 10 percent discount on orders totaling $100 or more! This discount is applicable only to regular priced items; already discounted items and special orders placed at the convention are not eligible toward the discount.

On a more serious and less self-promotional final note, Storied Threads wants every RICC attendee to know that we are a Themyscira-designated safe space. If you are being harassed or being made to feel uncomfortable while at the con, please come to us and we will take care of you.

2016-10-02-10-32-38-1What: The Connecticut Renaissance Faire
When: Every weekend in October, including Columbus Day Monday!
Where: North Haven Fairgrounds, North Haven, CT

This will be our eighth – and final! – year vending at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire. We’ve been with them through several locations, and have enjoyed every minute of our time there, and I’m so looking forward to the next four weekends with my faire family that I cannot even express it.


Yes, you heard me right – giant Connect Four!

This weekend will be the second of the show’s five weekend run, and will be EVEN BETTER, as we’ll be joined by Shakespeare Approves, Zoltan the Adequate, and The Lost Boys (alhtough that last will be for this weekend only, alas).

We’re pretty easy to find once you’re on site — we’re located right between the gazebo where so many musical acts perform, and the giant free-to-play Connect Four.

Every weekend has a different theme – this weekend is Pirate Invasion – so come visit as often as you’d like!

Faire Poster - BigThis weekend, the Connecticut Renaissance Faire opens in North Haven, CT. I’m incredibly excited for it, as I love ren faires, and this place has been a second home to me for a lot of years now. I love dressing up for it, I love the interactions I have with both good friends and new friends, and I love the reception my patches and bags always receive there.

This year, however, it’s a little bit sad at the same time – becuase it’s the last time I’ll be vending at this faire for the forseeable future. After this winter, my hiatus from the faire and convention scene begins, and while I intend to still be a part of the CTRF family, I have no idea what role I will play, or how often I will be there after this.

So please come to the faire, say hello, and wish me luck in my new, exciting, and a bit scary future! (Which, interestingly, is the same way I described my future when I quit my last day job. Hmm…)

RAD_MK_Floorplan blankWhat: Granite State Comic Con
When: September 17 & 18
Where: Radisson Center, Manchester, NH

Although this convention has been around for over ten years now, this will be the first time for Storied Threads vending there. We’re very excited to be heading up to New Hampshire to hopefully start our autumn off with a bang! You can find us in the dealer’s room in spaces N3 and N4 (cirled in red on this map) all weekend long.

This photo from last year’s TerrifiCon seems like a harbinger of things to come.

I’m still exhausted from Boston Comic Con last weekend, and am in mad prep mode — because TerrifiCon at Mohegan Sun opens tomorrow! I haven’t had a lot of time to make stock to replace all of the patches, bags, and scarves that sold out last weekend in Boston, but I’ve put as big of a dent in that list as I can. It’s been a coffee-fueled couple of days, and we’re not done yet!

You guys, August is going to be absolutely insane! We have not one, not two, but THREE conventions in a row coming up, and we’re working almost non-stop in the studio to try to build enough stock to carry us through them. I’m pretty sure the only days we have off this month are to help a friend move, and to go to the Worcester Art Museum with my mother-in-law for the Meow Exhibit.

So, without further ado, here are the details on all three!

Last year’s BCC selfie, before it became so unbearably hot that I had to lose the cosplay.

What: Boston Comic Con
When: August 12 – 14
Where: Seaport World Trade Center, Boston, MA

This will be our third year vending at Boston Comic Con, and has historically been our largest and busiest show of the year, so we’re very excited to be kicking off our August madness back at the Seaport World Trade Center!

I may or may not cosplay there this year – large shows often make me want to dress up and join in the fun. But at the same time they’re so crazy busy that taking the time to get all costumed up can feel like an extra burden. And last year it was so hot in the room that I was only able to stand being Loki for half the day, before I was madly pulling the wig off and stripping layers to finish the show in leggings and a t-shirt!

2015-08-14 12.25.59-1What: TerrifiCon
When: August 19 – 21
Where: Mohegan Sun, Uncasville, CT

This will be TerrifiCon’s second year at Mohegan Sun, and it will be our second year vending the event. Last year was incredibly well attended, with dealer’s room aisles that were packed with attendees in fabulous cosplays, and a second floor full of panels and entertainment. Plus the casino setting means that there are tons of food options availble for attendees without ever having to leave the venue!

What: Vermont Comic Con
When: August 27 – 28
Where: Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center, Burlington, VT

Although this is the third year for this convention, it’s the first year Storied Threads will be there. We’ve heard nothing but good reports on the event from attendees and other vendors, and we’re looking forward to heading up to Burlington for the weekend. It’s a great city with a lot of personality, and I’m excited to be bringing Storied Threads to a new audience.

On August 29, I plan to collapse from exhaustion. But I’ll be back up again the next day, getting ready for our autumn shows!
