Update: Redthreaded & Costume College 2020

Hello folks, We wanted to take a moment to update everyone on our plans for Costume College 2020. We know that the Costume College board is currently deliberating about whether the event will continued as scheduled for late July, and that a decision is forthcoming. In the meantime, I have made the proactive decision along with my team that no matter what happens with Costume College's schedule this summer, Redthreaded will not be vending. This is not an easy decision (vending at Costume College yields about 10% of our annual revenue), but we believe this is the best choice in the interest of...
