How to Host a Showcase

You become a Threads Ambassador when you host an Artisan Showcase for Threads Worldwide. By joining in our mission you directly contribute to the creation of life-changing work around the globe, supporting women-led businesses from Kenya to Ecuador. It’s easy and fun to host a Showcase!

Schedule a Showcase

Ready to get started? Find a date and time that works for you and your local Fair Trade Partner. Don’t know a Fair Trade partner yet? Don’t worry! We will connect you with one of our amazing world-changers in your area!

2
Invite your friends and family over!

Gather your friends for an evening of fair trade fashion and inspiring conversation. Invite your guests to enjoy some fair trade chocolate, wine for a girl’s night all grown up, or invite the kids and make it a Collaboration Club Showcase!

Style with Purpose & Passion

All you have to do is host!  Your Fair Trade Partner will set up a beautiful display, help style your guests in our distinctive jewelry and accessories, and share more about Threads and our artisan partners.

At the end of the Showcase sit back and take it all in.

Hear from an Ambassador

“I feel empowered wearing my Threads jewelry and sharing the stories of the amazing women who created it! And did I mention the free jewelry you get for hosting!? What is there not to love about hosting a Threads showcase!?!”

—Kim Wren, Threads Ambassador in Florida

“Hosting a party allowed me to support creativity around the world on a larger scale than just purchasing jewelry on my own. The gathering of friends and family opened the door for dialogue about bigger global issues and I believe this can help promote change in the world.”

—Maggie Sgier, Threads Ambassador turned Fair Trade Partner in Colorado 

“I love hosting to help my friends learn about and support marginalized women from around the globe become self-sufficient for themselves, their children, and their communities.”

—Mitzi, Threads Ambassador in California

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are hostesses called Ambassadors?2018-09-18T15:02:17+00:00

Because you are so much more than a hostess! When you gather your friends for a Threads Artisan Showcase, you’re advocating for a fair future for everyone on the planet. Like, everyone. That’s kind of a big deal. (But don’t worry, it’s also super easy and fun! We may be changing the world together, but we still know how to have a good time.)

What happens at an Artisan Showcase?2018-09-18T15:04:41+00:00

So. Much. Fun. A Threads Showcase is all about style, sisterhood, and impact… what’s more fun than that?! Your Fair Trade Partner will display fair trade, hand-crafted jewelry from around the world, share the stories of our Artisan Partners, and offer style tips to your guests. Your friends and family will have a bomb-diggity time trying on new looks, connecting with a local and global sisterhood, and knowing that anything they purchase is helping to build thriving communities all over the world.

What materials are provided?2018-09-18T15:06:48+00:00

We provide all Ambassadors with a packet of world-changing materials, including an Ambassador Planner (your step-by-step guide to a stellar Showcase), postcard invitations to mail or pass out to your guest list, and a couple of Look Books to use as teasers while you’re out and about. We’ll also send you some sample emails and texts you can customize.

How much food should I serve?2018-09-18T15:23:34+00:00

We know you want to wow your guests with the latest gourmet appetizer recipes from Epicurious, but we’re going to ask you to slow your roll and keep it simple. Like, really simple. We want the focus to be on the jewelry and our Artisan Partners, so the simpler, the better! Cheese and fruit or veggies and dip work great! Include a bottle of wine (or not, if alcohol’s not your jam!) and some sparkling water, and you’re all set! (And see all that culinary stress we just saved you?! You’re so welcome.)

Will I get to see the entire collection at my Showcase?2018-09-18T15:08:55+00:00

Maybe. Your Fair Trade Partner will bring her unique selection of Threads jewelry, which may or may not include the entire line. If not all items are shown, she will have photos and information for the additional pieces. Your guests can order anything in the line, even if it’s not displayed at the Showcase.

If some of my friends can’t come, can they still support the Threads movement by ordering?2018-09-18T15:09:58+00:00

Oh, honey, we would never get in their way! You will have an exclusive shopping link for your Showcase to share with anyone who is unable to attend (including out-of-town friends and family!). Any orders placed through that link will be included in your Showcase total so you can continue to earn Ambassador Rewards! You and your Fair Trade Partner will decide how long to keep the Showcase open for orders.

How do I prepare for my Showcase?2018-09-18T15:11:14+00:00

Stay in touch with your Fair Trade Partner (she lives to have you and your friends have a great Showcase!) and keep sharing your excitement for Threads with everyone on your guest list. Before your guests arrive, clear a space where your Fair Trade Partner can set up her display and keep the food nearby! Remember to keep it simple — fruit, cheese, or veggies and an easy beverage and you’re ready to go!

How much can I earn in Ambassador Rewards?2018-09-19T09:49:25+00:00

We love to spoil our Ambassadors! You’ll earn a percentage of Showcase sales in jewelry credits, plus the option to buy items at half price. On average, our Ambassadors earn $100+ in retail jewelry credits, plus two half-off items. Bottom line: the more people you have at your Showcase, the more potential you’ll have to go on a major shopping spree with your rewards.

I just hosted a few months ago. Is it too soon to host again?2018-09-19T09:50:06+00:00

Of course not! Your previous guests surely have more items on their wish lists and there are probably more than a few people who were disappointed they couldn’t make it to your last Showcase. Plus, we launch new collections every spring and fall, so your Showcases always stay fresh!

Can I still host if I don’t know a Fair Trade Partner?2018-09-19T09:50:11+00:00

Absolutely! Fill out this form to let us know you’d like to host, and we’ll match you with a Fair Trade Partner near you. You’ll love her, we know it!

What if there’s no Fair Trade Partner near me?2018-09-19T09:50:18+00:00

Well, it sounds like the perfect opportunity for you to launch Threads in your area! Join as a Fair Trade Partner and you’ll be the one earning commission from Showcases in your area.

How far in advance should I schedule my Showcase?2018-09-19T09:50:23+00:00

The sooner the better! If you’re excited now, then now’s the time! Your friends and family will hear your excitement and be glad your Showcase is happening soon so they can shop the Threads collection of fair trade accessories now, not later.

I can’t decide if I want to host or start a Threads business as a Fair Trade Partner. What should I do first?2018-09-19T09:50:30+00:00

Girl, we feel you. The opportunity to earn money AND make a difference? That’s totally our jam. If you know you want to start a Threads business as a Fair Trade Partner, don’t let us stop you! If you’re on the fence or you want to experience a Showcase firsthand before you sign on to do them for a living (or as a hobby… we get it, you’re busy!), then start out by hosting and see what your friends and family think! If you decide on the spot that this opportunity is for you, your Fair Trade Partner will help you book your very first Showcases with your guests and you can launch your business right there!
