THREAD works in conjunction with The African Community Center (www.acc-den.org). This organization is focused on helping refugees learn various life skills in their new environment. The ACC’s “We Made This” program teaches refugee women sewing skills and assists them in selling their handmade items at community markets.
THREAD, teaming up with ACC, now carries their beautiful work. From computer bags to aprons, the ACC women provide the store with a variety of unique flair. Each of their items are tagged with a short bio from the artist. Purchasing their affordable products allows shoppers the opportunity to take home a lovely gift, while directly supporting an individual in the Denver area. Come check it out!
