Support the Film
Help bring “threads” to the world!
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 donation you make — small or large — will help us to celebrate their accomplishments and bring the film to communities around the world.
