Threaded: Life's Necessities Created For Your Unique Style
I'm not really sure what my favorite part is about Threaded, which is the amazing Etsy Shop where I found my fabulous picnic gear this year. Maybe it's the fact that there are 'blankets' and then there are Threaded beach and picnic blankets. And believe me, there is a HUGE difference! My Threaded blanket has help up beautifully in my backyard, at the park, the playground, and even at the beach. It doesn't just look better than a regular old blanket, but thanks to a polyurethane laminate backing, it can be flipped over and used as an umbrella.
We use both our blanket and our bag so often. Sometimes "Date Night" is "Date Afternoon" and sometimes it's in our own backyard. We sometimes escape from the kids with our favorite reading-planning-blogging materials and it's much more fun and romantic to use our stylish picnic gear from Stephanie than to just sit outside in our same old lawn chairs.
The bag is perfect. And when I say perfect, I mean perfect. As a mom of two children and a veteran (20+ year) kindergarten teacher I have had many different bags and totes and carriers. There never seemed to be one with a strap wide ( and soft ) enough or that could hold enough. Except this one from Threaded. The beach bags from Stephanie have extraordinary, eco-friendly, waterproof liners and we have been able to take our books everywhere without having to worry about them getting wet.
The teacher totes are awesome too! She makes reversible bags from decorator-weight cotton and lots of pockets. The handles are extra wide and made of comfortable cotton so you can make it from the car to your classroom with ease. Go ahead and check out her large assortment of personalized creations for teachers here.
Speaking of Ice-Cream, we took out gear from Threaded and our H2rose down to the beach the other day near one of our favorite ice cream shops in Mystic, CT.
We had a perfect day. We enjoyed our ice-cream even though it was a little bit early since National Ice-Cream Day is officially tomorrow.
I was searching the Threaded website and was amazed at the wonderful items she has for weddings! Her bridal collection reminded me of my cousin's beach wedding and I thought about how special it would be to have handmade creations by Stephanie to give to a wedding party, especially if your wedding was at a beach.
I absolutely love this idea to present to a bridal party at a shower or bachelorette party. They can be customized for any color or theme, of course. She will actually fully customize any item in her entire shop for any occasion!
All her bags are made with designer cotton fabric and often paired with water proof eco-friendly linings. The good news is, a little champagne will not ruin your tote!
I decided that what I really love the best about Threaded is Stephanie's way of making everyday Items more practical, durable and effective but also more stylish and fun and original. Her own desire for something better, after toting her two boys to and from the pool and ball games has led to this supremely functional and incredibly durable line of items that are life proof and designed specifically for style-savvy men (yes, men too) and women. I also love the fact that in her spare time Stephanie brings adults and children into her world, where she teaches sewing and encourages entrepreneurial mindsets. At the same time she is promoting social and environmental responsibility, by gathering and up-sourcing used clothing and fabrics from area thrift stores for her lessons-keeping these items out of landfills and encouraging a more sustainable wardrobe.
