Crafting the finest needlepoint belts available, Good Threads is a true social business. Founded to employ mothers of the Joan Rose Foundation (JRF), Good Threads offers a means for Haitians to provide for their families through secure employment. Good Threads also gives back to the JRF, funding two weeks of food to a JRF child for every belt sold. Good Threads works in tandem with the Joan Rose Foundation to develop our community and afford Haitian children with the chance to succeed in life.
Joan Rose Foundation
The Joan Rose Foundation (JRF) is a non-profit organization located in Jacmel, Haiti with a modest goal: to improve the lives of vulnerable Haitian children and their families. The JRF provides over 85 children with the opportunity to succeed through food, tuition, tutoring, medical and legal assistance, and activities designed to promote growth and independence. Good Threads provides JRF families and others with financial stability through secure employment and opportunity.
Buying A Needlepoint Belt For The Greater Good
We are the only needlepoint belt company that gives back a portion of its revenue to charity, and to date Good Threads has provided over 20,000 meals to Joan Rose Foundation (JRF) children. With food being the single greatest expense of the JRF, proceeds from Good Threads has allowed the JRF to spend more money on education, healthcare, and other important needs.
Haiti is one of the poorest countries on the planet with 58.5% of the population living below the poverty line. Dependable employment is scarce. By employing the JRF families, Good Threads provides stability to Haitian households. Prior to Good Threads, the JRF lost children whose families had moved away in search of work. Good Threads boasts a 100% retention rate as no family employed by Good Threads has ever moved away in search of employment. This equates to greater stability and improved lives.

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 sold, Good Threads feeds 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.
