Geeky sewn and crochet items for the whole family; including scarves, burp cloths, and plushies. My products come out of motherhood with a passion for all things geeky, nerdy, and science filled. My crocheting is done in the evenings, during nap times, or while waiting at activities. I sew upstairs right next to the playroom allowing me to multitask working and playing. My goal is to bring a little bit of the geeky into your everyday life.
A collection of jewelry, steampunk creations, wire trees and terrariums by Lacy Renee Allen.
All of these are of my own handiwork. I never make two pieces exactly alike, and every piece is crafted by my own two hands. All feathers used come from my family's fee-range poultry flock or from my pet parrots during the molting season. No birds are ever harmed in the gathering of feathers.
Hand crafted jewelery and crochet items. We also carry a few carefully selected items from wholesalers, and custom items.
Katrina Joyner is a Florida born artist. Her favorite topic is fantasy, but sometimes she will have what she calls a "root moment" in which she will express her Native American (Brotherton tribe) ancestry. She runs the (very) small publishing house, The Writers of the Apocalypse, while dabbling in acting in film, on stage, and of course voice acting. She also can be caught playing the autoharp in the messhall here at Starbase Indy - but because she only knows 4 songs if you ask her to fake it she probably can't.
Troy Maynard is a giant viking, foodie, geeky gamer, father of three, and master of none. Between taking frequent pictures of meals and occasional pillaging (alleged), he writes his thoughts on life from his Mead Hall in the rolling hills of southern Indiana. Ransacking passing ships doesn't pay the bills, so he also works in the software industry, where he gets to use his tantrum-management skills on a daily basis. You can read more of his stories and thoughts on parenting at his blog, and in his book, How to Raise Viking Children and Other Tales of Woe. He also has a recurring column called “My Dad Voice” at Limestone Post Magazine.

Once upon a time, there were two sisters. They spent a lot of time together. They made things. They made lots of things. They made so many things that they had to start selling them.
Through a chance encounter with new friends and a burst of enthusiasm on both sides, they decided to sell their things at comic book conventions.
They've never looked back.
