In celebration of what’s become for geeks an unofficial holiday, we’re presenting some sci-fi movie-inspired designs, and of course we have to begin with our Star Wars-inspired “Stay on Target” patch ($8). It’s sound advice, for life in general and for targeting massive space stations of staggering destructive power.

Our Star Trek-inspired Away Team bags have been popular items since we introduced them, and we have a few left over from our 2017 show run, so they’re on-hand and ready to ship! They’re available in messenger ($34), tablet ($49), and laptop ($54) sizes, in classic ST gold, blue, or red, with embroidery for command, science, medical, engineering, and security. Although we default to Original Series color/department pairings, we can easily adjust them for Next Generation fans.

 

 

 

H.G. Wells’ classic War of the Worlds has been adapted into two major motion pictures (we like the older version better), a handful of loosely inspired low-budget movies, a TV show, comic books, and now into an embroidered bookmark ($10)! The design depicts one of the Martian tripods looming over the city, bathing it in the beam of its devastating heat ray.

…but it’s aliens.

ufologistFirst up in our collection of out-of-this-world patches is a couple of Geek Merit Badges, starting with the UFOlogist ($8), for that aspiring flying saucer-seeker. This patch features a glow-in-the-dark tractor beam for a special extra(terrestrial) touch.

 

 

 

xenolinguisticsOnce you’ve been abducted, you’ll want to communicate with your new alien friends, at least well enough to ask them not to experiment on you. For that handy skill we have the Xenolinguistics Geek Merit Badge ($8). Fun fact: the alien language is actually the word “hello” spelled out in Microsoft Word wingdings!

WarOfWorlds

 

Sadly, alien visitors are not always friendly. Sometimes they just want to burn our civilization to the ground and terraform the planet — such as the invading Martians did in H.G. Wells’ classic War of the Worlds. Our War of the Worlds-inspired bookmark ($10) depicts a Martian tripod turning its deadly heat ray on London.

XFilesOf course, you might not believe in little green men, so for you skeptics we have one of our all-time best-selling items, the X-Files-inspired “I Want to Believe” patch ($8). We also make this design available on small messenger bags ($38) and tablet bags ($53). Want it on a laptop-size bag? Contact us and ask us about it!

vine-bookmarkToday’s new item is significant in several ways.

This embroidered bookmark bears an adapted passage from the Bible, specifically Micah 4:4: “They shall all sit under their own vines and under their own fig trees, and no one shall make them afraid.” George Washington used that phrase, or a version of it, in several speeches and pieces of correspondence, and the words appear in the hit musical Hamilton, in the song, “One Last Time.”

Buy it now at our web store for $10.

It’s no secret we here at Storied Threads are avid readers and draw a lot of inspiration from our favorite books — and we’re definitely in a literary frame of mind as Boskone, a Boston-based convention that focuses heavily on genre literature, is coming up in a few weeks.

(Sorry, folks, we won’t be there vending, we’re just going to actually go to the con as guests. That’ll be a new experience!)

bibliophileSo this week we’re spotlighting some items that should be of interest to our reader friends, starting with the Bibliophile Geek Merit Badge ($7). We also offer variations of this design on an embroidered bookmark and on a messenger bag. FYI, we haven’t made tablet or laptop sizes in this design yet, but if that sounds like something you or a fellow reader would be interested in, drop us a line and ask about a custom order!

me-timeSpeaking of bookmarks, we have several designs listed in our Literature section, but I’m going to spotlight the “Me Time” bookmark ($8).

We came up with this idea after hearing a lot of stories — too many, in our opinion — of people being harassed in coffee shops and on public transit while they were just trying to sit and read in peace.

Make sure the top of this bookmark is peeking out and send a clear message that you’re not there to chat, you’re there to read.

 

 

Nevermore Messenger Bag

Nevermore Messenger Bag

While we honor several great authors, we’re going to pick on Edgar Allan Poe for our final item, a messenger bag bearing the most famous line he ever wrote, from the poem The Raven ($34). As it happens, the basic messenger bag is the perfect size for holding a hardcover or trade paperback size book!

Remember, these and other designs are also available as stickers, laptop skins, T-shirts, and more at our Redbubble store.

As we’ve recently remarked, every so often we take a look at our designs and consider whether to keep them as part of our catalog or retire them — the latter decision usually prompted by a decrease in customer interest, but sometimes we’re so fond of a particular design we can’t bear to get rid of it. That’s when we get creative a re-purpose the design, such as when we adapted our Dracula-inspired “The Blood is the Life” patch into one of our embroidered bookmarks.

stage-combat-gmbToday we’re unveiling another old favorite design we’ve given new life in the form of our newest Geek Merit Badge! We took our old stage combat patch and re-branded it as part of the GMB line, and now we have a cool companion piece to our Stage Manager and Theater Geek badges. The Stage Combat Geek Merit Badge is now available at our webstore for $8.

frankenstein-bookmarkIt’s been a while since we added something to our line of embroidered bookmarks, so we’re thrilled to finally unveil a design we’ve been toying with for a few months now.

Inspired by Mary Shelley’s immortal work of science fiction, our Frankenstein bookmark depicts the hand of the newly created creature stirring to life for the first time against a stormy sky. The lightning in this design is rendered in glow-in-the-dark thread for an extra cool finishing touch. Get it now for just $10 from our webstore or Etsy shop.

If you love the design but want it as something other than a patch, head over to our Redbubble shop to get it on phone cases, laptop skins, T-shirts, stickers, and other items.frankensteinrb
