Threads Worldwide creates life changing work for women around the world through the fair trade of jewelry. We offer 3 ways to make a fair trade impact: please buy fair trade, and/or host a Threads artisan showcase, and become a Threads Fair Trade Partner.
What is your favorite fair trade product?
Other than several items in the Threads Worldwide fall line, I love the olive oils and tapenades from Canaan Fair Trade and the amazing shea lotions from Shema.
What inspired you to social justice and/or the fair trade movement?
I am an independent licensed social worker by training and have always had social justice in my heart. When a friend asked me for some help with a FB party she was doing, I became an accidental fair trade activist. She taught me about the challenges women and girls face in the global south and how fair trade makes such a difference in their lives and in their community.
What do you want Expo shoppers to know about your booth?
You can meet the Threads founders all day at my booth. They will be giving a keynote presentation at 11. All of Threads items will be shipped directly to your home for the highest quality product.
I am booking home Threads Artisan Showcases with limited dates in November and December.
I am committed to attending Fair Trade events at St. Noel in Willoughby Hills, St. Mark in Lakewood, and St. Rita in Solon.
