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.

Threads and Tables: A Request for Volunteers

Peace of Thread

God has been enabling Peace of Thread to thrive! For example, on April 7th , the world-famous cellists of Atlanta Celli gave an amazing concert and helped us raise $10,000! With ten grand in the bank, we were able to hire ten new women! That’s ten women who will have a chance at a brighter future. A blessing indeed! But, an expanding ministry at Peace of Thread means an expanding need for volunteers.

 

Mainly, we need two types of volunteers: “common threaders” and “behind-the-sceners.”
 

“Common threaders get their nickname from the way that their lives are woven together with those of our artisans," explains our founder, Denise Smith. A common threader befriends one of our women and comes alongside her to pray, help her practice English, and to share her burdens and joys. Common threaders are important to Peace of Thread because they provide a sense of community to refugees who have had their community ripped away from them by war, disaster, or poverty. Denise explains that community is even more important to a refugee woman than what’s in her refrigerator. "The companionship of a common threader gives her hope, nourishes her soul, and helps ease her transition into American life.”

 

But not everyone can develop a deep friendship with a refugee. That’s where our “behind-the-sceners” come in. “Behind-the- sceners” are people who do all the little things that help Peace of Thread run smoothly. As the nickname implies, these things are often done “behind the scenes” with the people doing them getting little recognition. But Peace of Thread simply could not survive without these valuable volunteers. Right now, we really need people to come to our festivals and help take down booths after festivals. Helping us with this task will make going to festivals easier, which in turn will make selling bags easier.

 

So if you’re interested in making new friends from different backgrounds or enabling women to sell bags that will provide them with a better life, e-mail us at info@peaceofthread.com. And remember, “ever that every contribution, no matter how small, helps weave the tapestry of Peace of Thread.
