The Good Threads brand was founded in 2010 when its founder was searching for a way to help young children in Haiti break the cycle of poverty that they were stuck in. It became apparent that in order to best help these children in impoverished communities, their parents would first need help finding a stable job and income. Thus, Good Threads was founded, to help mothers create a stable home environment for their children through a stable job in making high-quality needlepoint products. Today, all of our custom needlepoint products are handmade in Haiti, and Good Threads continues to focus on using the profits of each sale to give back to communities and help Haitian citizens in need.

WHAT IS “NEEDLEPOINT”?
Needlepoint is actually one of the oldest forms of canvas work, dating back to the ancient Egyptians who used this form of stitching to sew up their canvas tents. Over time, needlepoint became a popular domestic craft and is now a widely used technique for designing small, unique crafts.
Unlike other forms of embroidery, needlepoint does not embellish a fabric, but actually creates a new type of fabric through sturdy stitching. Designs are created by changing the color of the thread while maintaining the same pattern of stitching along a stiff canvas with openings at regular intervals. Due to this style of stitching, needlepoint products are strong and durable, with a design that is more abstract and unique only to the needlepoint technique.
Good Threads needlepointers create each needlepoint product by hand, using their expert needlepoint skills to create beautiful designs and high-quality products. Depending on the size and design, each product can contain thousands of individual needlepoint stitches, all stitched by hand by our expert needlepointers in Haiti.

How do I know if a design I want will fit on the product?
To make sure that the design you want will work well with the product you want, check out our pre-made products and their designs to use as a guide for yours.
