Collective Threads

I just found out about this free, seasonal, children's clothing shop called Collective Threads inside Convergence in the Plaza District and just have to share it with you. Here is a description from their website and a video that explains what they are about.

"Collective Threads exists to provide quality clothing for children in an organized, hospitable setting. Threads is also a place where parents from all cultures can come together with the common interest of caring for their children. Through Threads we hope to provide needed clothing in a way that makes moms, dads and kids feel special. The clothing donated will benefit the children in and around the Plaza District of OKC."

Ryan and I live about 5 blocks from this store and I had no idea it even existed. It's a little confusing because there is also a handmade shop called Collected Threads less than a block from Collective Threads, but they are two totally different sets of owners and concepts. I'm really excited about our community and how people are coming together to contribute to its growth and redevelopment. I think Ryan and I will really have to stick around for a while and see how it all unfolds.

Here is a blog where more information about the Plaza District can be found: click here.

Thanks so much for spreading the word about THREADS! We are always willing to dream up new ways to care for the neighborhood---if you want to be involved at any level---just give me shout!
