But There’s a Pandemic!
How Can I Host a Showcase?!

You can still gather your people for style, sisterhood, and impact. Here are 3 ways you can create life-changing work with women around the world, from India to Ecuador to the U.S.A… even in 2021.

1
Host a Virtual Showcase

Gather your friends on Facebook, Zoom, or Google Hangouts for 30 minutes of fair trade fashion and inspiring conversation. You don’t even have to clean your house or change out of your jammies! All you have to do is get your people there, connect to the event, and have fun! Your Fair Trade Partner will keep the conversation going, help (virtually) style your guests in our distinctive jewelry, and share more about Threads and our Artisan Partners.

2
Host a Text Showcase

Text Showcases are an easy way to connect your friends to the difference they can make when they shop fair trade. You start the text chain and your Fair Trade Partner will keep everyone engaged with style tips and inspiring stories.

3
Host an in-person Showcase
(in a safe, socially-distanced environment)

Talk with your Fair Trade Partner about ways you could create a safe and fun event for you and your guests. Possibilities include holding the Showcase outdoors, limiting the guest list, and utilizing masks and hand sanitizer throughout the event.

Hear from Someone Who’s Hosted

“I was nervous about hosting; I didn’t want anyone to feel pressure to purchase. Kate, my Fair Trade Partner, had such a beautiful way of sharing the mission of Threads without any pressure.  The Showcase was a huge success and people got to experience gorgeous well-priced items made with such love by women all over the world. Kate also made the logistics of hosting so easy!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are hostesses called Ambassadors?2018-09-18T15:02:17-07:00

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?2018-09-18T15:04:41-07:00

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?2018-09-18T15:06:48-07:00

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?2018-09-18T15:23:34-07:00

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?2021-03-19T23:25:44-07:00

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 order?2021-03-19T23:14:36-07:00

Yes! You will have an exclusive shopping link to share with anyone who is unable to attend or to send to out-of-town friends and family. Any orders placed through that link will be included in your Showcase total and Ambassador Rewards.

How do I prepare for my Showcase?2021-03-19T23:12:32-07:00

The more the merrier. Invite as many people as you can because some won’t be available and some will cancel last minute (just being honest). For in-person, have a spot available close to the food for the jewelry and for online, make sure you’re engaging in posts and sharing your excitement wherever you can!

How much can I earn in Ambassador Rewards?2021-03-19T23:08:41-07:00

You’ll earn a percentage of Showcase sales in jewelry credits, plus the option to buy items at half price. 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?2018-09-19T09:50:06-07:00

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?2021-03-19T23:04:54-07:00

Absolutely! Contact us and we’ll work it out with you!

What if there’s no Fair Trade Partner near me?2018-09-19T09:50:18-07:00

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?2018-09-19T09:50:23-07:00

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.

Should I host or get started?2021-03-19T23:02:13-07:00

If you know you want to start a Threads business – go for it! If you’re on the fence, we recommend hosting a Showcase first so you can experience what we do first hand.
