Storied Threads was one of our new vendors for the 2009 season. They carry Renaissance themed quality garb which includes Pirate wear, dresses, bloomers, and of course their famous Tricorn Hats!
According to their website: http://www.storiedthreads.com
“Veronica Bailey has served as the staff costumer for Pastimes Entertainment since 2004 and the Connecticut Renaissance Faire from 2005 through 2007, putting to use her talent for recreating period garb and creating unique pieces inspired by historical fashions. ”
Also from their website about Storied Threads :
“ABOUT STORIED THREADS
Each garment produced in the Storied Threads line is truly unique. Most dealers in medieval and Renaissance garb sell mass-produced items in an array of different colors, but each Storied Threads item is created by hand by Veronica herself, and no two garments are ever alike. ”
They have all kinds of clothing to suit all Renaissance needs and more!
I really like her clothing as it looks durable and wearable (all at the same time) which to me is very important especially when you are a performer, you need that extra comfort knowing that your garb has been quality made.
I also liked that they came to our little Faire (being it a second year only) and was very accomadating to the fact that the farm hands decided on being – well, not very smart… I was sure that she was going to be upset if a mudslide were to come barrelling down to her tent (a half hour before the gate opened mind you), but no, everything was okay.
Also, her husband Michael (who is a critic, and I hope he likes what I write here…gulp…) took lots of pictures (of which are now on our website http://www.winslowshire.c0m) so thanks for that! My favorite picture of him is the one where he is standing by the goat with his hat on, and the goat is smiling back at the camera…they almost look like um, well…um, cute together…
See them next at The Connecticut Renaissance Faire http://ctfaire.com/ which will be from September 26 – October 18, 2009.
