Angela Melfi & Kara Valentine started Threads Worldwide in 2011 after colleging, traveling, and best friending together for what feels like… forever!
They wanted to start a company where women could plug in to an instant global community, express their passions and creativity, and fulfill on their desires to connect and make a difference.
Threads Worldwide creates life changing work with women around the world through the fair trade of artisan jewelry. Angela and/or Kara can speak individually or share the stage (or mic) – and their best-friendly banter – with the audience.
They can speak and share stories on a variety of topics. Here are a few to get the juices flowing: using business for change, the difference fair trade makes, creating your legacy, being afraid and doing it anyway (courage), elevating your worries.
