Help bring “threads” to the world!


Surayia and some of the women of Arshi

Women artisans, once destitute young mothers, have supported their families over the past 30 years, stitch by stitch. Just as each stitch has made a difference in their lives, so every contribution you make — small or large — will help to celebrate their many accomplishments and to bring the film to communities around the  world.



Please make your check or money order payable to International Documentary Association, and write Threads-3732 on the memo line.  Send to:  Threads, c/o Kantha Productions LLC, PO Box 143, Lakebay, WA 98349-0143.

Donations are tax-deductible for U.S. persons.


We welcome contributions in Bangladesh currency.  Please contact us to discuss your interest.

Do you want to participate in building momentum for women’s social and economic development through the arts?  To inspire young women to become artisan entrepreneurs?

Please consider a donation to help us spread Threads widely and inspire women and girls in cities and villages around Bangladesh and the world.   Please contact us to discuss sponsorship benefits.

The International Documentary Association (IDA), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is the fiscal sponsor for Threads, and all contributions to the film made through IDA are tax-deductible for U.S. persons to the full extent provided by law. Employers may match contributions as well.
