Help a Maine artist share her work with more of the world. I'm bringing Historical Fashions from Maine to Florida, and you can help!
Silver Thistle, Frazzled Knot is the name I work under, and I create clothing based in history. I research time periods, and cultures, learn the functionality and styles of the clothing pieces, and even study their construction methods in order to create a more authentic piece. I love trying to be as historically accurate as possible, we can learn so much from how we used to do things. Some specific pieces that I have made are from Elizabethan England, 14th century Turkish, and 16th century Germany. As the sole proprietor of Silver Thistle, Frazzled Knot, I have a passion for my work and each item is handmade. I create and test my own patterns in addition to sewing them, and quality work is very important to me.
Silver Thistle, Frazzled Knot operates out of my home in Falmouth, Maine. Top quality workmanship and a strong attention to detail resulted in Silver Thistle, Frazzled Knot getting accepted to the Hoggetowne Medieval Faire in Gainesville, Florida. Since Hoggetowne is a juried show, only the best are accepted, and I am thrilled to be given this opportunity to show my work to a new audience.
Here is how you can help make it happen:
All my materials have been purchased, all my patterns and designs are finalized, and I'm busily sewing all my work together in preparation for the show. What I need is funding to get me and my work from point A to point B. I have a Chevy Caviler, and it simply won't hold me, all my stock, my vending tent, my personal gear, my display racks and dressings, and all the other little things that go into vending at an outdoor show. The trip between Falmouth, Maine and Gainesville, Florida is just over 1,300 miles. This kick starter is based on one-dollar per mile, to assist a Maine artist in sharing my work with more of the world. I'm headed from Maine to Florida and you can help!
