For women, looking to make a difference, Peace of Thread is a handbag company that makes high quality bags that help a refugee woman by providing them with a sustainable source of income, and training in English and job skills. Unlike other stylish brands, a Peace of Thread purse is a fashion-forward way to intentionally provide a job for a woman in need.

Each bag in handcrafted, and one-of-a-kind -- just like our artisan threaders -- and serves as a statement piece for our customers to carry the stories of our artisans into the world. Be a part of our story. Sew Peace.

New Year, New Life

Peace of Thread

The start of a new year is often associated with new beginnings.  There’s a sense that life begins anew every January 1st.  Our ministry has grown by leaps and bounds over this past year, and it feels like new life and the opportunity for new life are everywhere.

Part of this feeling comes from the baby boom we're experiencing.  Five of our seamstresses gave birth last year, and one is set to give birth this year.  All of these babies are new additions not only to their own families but to the larger family of Peace of Thread.  The births remind us that even though the world can be a bleak place, there is always room for joy and new potential.

But babies aren't the only new life coming into being at Peace of Thread.  We're also employing more women!  Thanks to contributions from faithful donors, we were able tohire three women from Afghanistan. These women will have new lives as they join a community and learn skills that will help them provide for their families and give them self-confidence.

Finally, we are stepping up our efforts to find mentors and sponsors for our seamstresses.  Mentors are American women who form friendships with the refugees and help them adjust to living in America.  Sponsors are people who give money so that we can hire new women (The cost of training a seamstress is $1,000).  And we're pairing each trainee's mentor with each trainee's s sponsor so that each trainee can have a "team" working to help her reach her full potential.

Truly,   new life is everywhere.  I believe God will bless us with abundance this year.  I invite you, dear readers, to celebrate with us and to be a part of our new future.
