Crafting the finest needlepoint belts available, Good Threads is a true social business. The company was founded to help mothers of the Joan Rose Foundation (JRF) bring stability and the basic necessities to their households through the production and sale of needlepoint products. We feed a child at the JRF for two weeks for every needlepoint belt sold. \We work in tandem with the JRF to develop our community and provide our employees’ children with the chance to succeed in life.
Joan Rose Foundation
The Joan Rose Foundation(JRF) was founded in 2010 to provide impoverished children with the opportunity to succeed. The JRF provides children with food, private school tuition, tutoring, medical and legal assistance as needed and other extracurricular activities. When the JRF was founded in 2010 almost none of the parents of its children had stable employment. Good Threads now employs every single parent of the children at the JRF and other non JRF members in the local Haitian community.
Buying A Needlepoint Belt For The Greater Good
We are the only needlepoint belt supplier or company that offers a portion of each belts revenue to charity. We have provided more than 20,000 meals to children at the JRF to date. Feeding children is the JRF’s single biggest expense. By stepping in and helping the JRF with this expense, Good Threads has allowed the JRF to spend more on education and other important needs.
One of the biggest problems in Haiti is a near total lack of jobs. Only 33% of the country has formal employment. By employing the JRF families, Good Threads stabilizes their households. Before Good Threads, the JRF would lose a lot of children whose parents moved away in search of work. No family employed by Good Threads has ever moved away. Good Threads employment also ensures that our children do not go through the trauma of going days without food or being thrown out of their homes.
Making A Difference
Good Threads is a true social business. We were founded to help mothers of the Joan Rose Foundation (JRF) bring stability and the basic necessities to their households. For each handcrafted needlepoint belt we sell, we feed a child at the Joan Rose Foundation for two weeks.
We Take Pride In Crafting Only The Best Needlepoint Belts
While we take great pride in all of the good we do for the families in the JRF community, we also take great pride in the product we produce. Our needlepoint belts are second to none in the needlepoint market. We use full grain leather for our end straps and backing. Other companies use cheaper leathers to save a buck, but we want our belts to last a lifetime, which means full grain is the only choice. From our buckles, to our thread, to our leather, we search high and low to ensure that our belts are made from the best possible materials. We then combine these high end materials with the skill and attention to detail of our world class stitchers to create a beautiful needlepoint belt.
We sell single and wholesale orders of needlepoint belts, custom belts, batch orders of custom belts and batch orders of belts from our catalog. If you are in the market for a needlepoint product we can help you.
