Description

Join Threads Worldwide as we extend Fiddlehead's International Peace Day Celebration by being in community with each of you for an evening of discussion with co-founder of Threads Worldwide, Kara Valentine Wiegand.

Threads Worldwide creates life-changing work for women around the world through the fair trade of artisan jewelry.


A little bit more about why the Threads mission is so special...

Each day, thousands of women around the world join together through the Threads movement. Artisan Partners and Fair Trade Partners alike work to better the lives of their families and communities, altering the course for future generations. Women know themselves as leaders and world-changers. They begin to understand the value of their contributions, standing taller with each step forward.


Creating Life-Changing Work

Threads Worldwide partners with artisan cooperatives to create life-changing work in more than 15 countries around the world. By life-changing work, we mean just that: work that pays artisans a fair wage, empowering them to provide for their families and make a difference in their communities. We focus on women because they invest up to 90% of their income in their families and communities.

Many of the artisans who handcraft our pieces are survivors of sex trafficking, have special needs, or are facing social, economic, or political hardships. This work enables them to reach their potential to thrive, not just survive.
