Our last full set-up at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire, fall 2016.

When Storied Threads first started out more than a decade ago, our first show set-up was at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire, in a wooden stall at the edge of a county fairgrounds.

It’s perhaps appropriate then we’re coming full circle and will have a similar arrangement when we return to CTRF for the last weekend (October 7 – 9) of its six-week run at the Lebanon Fairgrounds in Lebanon, CT!

This is going to be a very special one-time-only appearance for us. We decided last year to stop actively doing conventions and faires and we’re happy with that decision, but we have quite a bit of stock left over from our shows days, including retired designs and convention-only items that aren’t part of our online catalog — and we’re going to be making those items available at CTRF at deeply discounted prices, and once they’re gone we won’t be making more, so this will be your last chance to grab a bow tie, hair bow, or our very last TARDIS Christmas stocking.

But that’s not all! We have a number of bags, scarves, and neckties that are available online, but we’re looking to clear out our closet, so we’re marking those down too, but only for this show! Once we sell out of the on-hand stock we bring to the faire, everything will go back to its full retail list price. In addition, we will have a limited selection of our patches, which will be sold at their regular list price.

So now in addition to the great shows and other awesome vendors, you all have even more reason to come to the faire. Come by, say hi, and maybe do some early holiday gift shopping!

I have a customer who comes to me every year to make him a patch for his Fantasy Football team.  Every year, it’s something wildly different from the year before, and every year it’s one of the pieces I’m most proud of. So this post is nothing but a coollection of those patches, because I simply want to share them.

I had intended to bring you guys one new product or design every week. It really was my intention! But lately, between shows and the large number of custom orders I’ve been getting, I have simply fallen behind. And this week, I find myself without anything new to share with you.

So instead, please enjoy these pictures from the Connecticut Renaissance Faire Time Travelers Weekend! We’re still open for two more weeks, so if you’re anywhere near North Haven, CT, please come and visit!

For my latest Spoonflower fabric, I wanted to do something other than a basic circle skirt for my project photo. I decided to do a simple jersey cotton dress, found myself a pattern to use, and set to work cutting out the pieces — only to discover halfway through that I’d laid the pattern out wrong, and all of my lovely trees were upside down.

I’m not going to lie — there was a lot of swearing, and I may have hurled the now useless fabric against the wall and quit for the day.

Two days later, I got over myself and ordered two more yards of Cotton Spandex Jersey from Spoonflower. And two days after that, I realized that as it would be well into autumn by the time I finally got this summer dress made and photographed, I could use some of the old fabric (which was still in a pile in the corner of my studio) to make some cozy matching armwarmers.

yggdrasilrb3The print was quite large on this fabric, which is great for a dress or other large product. But I wanted to make sure the pattern was versatile, so I’ve also made available a smaller version, at about half the size of the original. This photo shows a swatch of the smaller fabric overlaid on the dress I made of the original, for comparison.

Both fabric patterns can be found in my growing selection of prints in my Spoonflower shop. Keep an eye out, as I continue to add more!
