Why Threads of Blessing?
We are an inter-generational group of women who delight in holding a needle and thread to design and embroider. We are committed to supporting and nurturing the creative process. Threads of Blessings has enabled women in Haiti, Honduras, Mexico and Uganda to produce unique pieces of textile art that represent their culture and surroundings. Currently, we are working only in Uganda. Through the sale of their work, these women are able to provide medical care, education for their children, buy livestock and seed for crops, and build simple homes for their families.
As their work improves and their confidence grows, they begin their own micro-enterprise ventures. Many lives are being impacted and changed.
What makes Threads of Blessing textiles so unique?
Because the lifestyle is different in Uganda, so is the needlework produced. Each tapestry is a visual record of the culture and tradition of the artist. The finished products are marketed by Threads of Blessing throughout the United States and Canada as pillows, tote bags and purses, journals, sketch pads, book covers, foot stools, wine carriers, eye glass cases, on clothing, etc., or simply as pieces of embroidery.
100% of the proceeds are returned directly to the individual artists.
