My Business Is a Fourth Grader (!?!) Happy 10th Birthday to Redthreaded

corsets historical costuming informational news theatrical costuming

Folks. Wow. 

When I began Redthreaded in my college apartment in early 2009, I never dreamed that it would become a business with employees, studio space, and an international reach. It's been a long, sometimes hard decade, but I'm happy to be here.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 30% of small businesses make it to (and through) their 10th year.

So I want to take a minute to celebrate YOU, our amazing customers, supporters, and fans, for believing in us and our products. Below, we've shared some photos from our clients over the years. From the individual to the large scale theatre production, you're all important and integral to our successes. We do this for you.

Here's to another 10 years.

Costume Designer Linda Cho trusted us to bring some of her designs for Anastasia the Musical to life, for the Hartford, Broadway, and tour productions


Lauren Stowell and Abby Cox of American Duchess are big fans of ours (the feeling is mutual, you should see my costume shoe cabinet...), and we're happy to see Abby looking so fabulous in a number of our corsets, like the Margaret

The American Duchess ladies even made a video about their 1830's stays. Thank you! (And that freeze frame is really something)


Devon dyed her stock white Tudor stays (discontinued) a lovely shade of blue. So clever! All of our cotton sateen corsets are dyable.

We are always happy to work with Costume Designer Gregg Barnes, and have made many looks for his shows, including Something Rotten! and Tuck Everlasting on Broadway.

We love it when you share photos with us. Tag @redthreaded in your public Instagram photos so we can see them! And our email inbox is always open.

Thanks again, everyone. Now, to #justkeepsewing. I should probably go get us some cake or something!
