Dear Friends of Hunter's Threads,
First of all, I would like to thank all our donors, shoppers, therapists and advocates! Here's a little update to bring you all up to speed. We've been around almost a year (Sept 2017) and we couldn't be more thrilled. We still have a lot more work to do. It's difficult starting a new business especially when I know the potential is through the roof. The only thing that I have against me is time. HT has the ability to reach so many kids and provide them with therapy resources to help them reach their goals. HT is asking for all hands on deck to make this next chapter a success. I want HT to be so much more then a clothing store. I want it to continue to fill a need for parents and children. Shopping for kids can be so fun and very expensive, but when I was faced with the fact that I had an unexpected expense with therapy needs for my son, I was extremely conscience of where my money was going. I want HT to be a place parents can shop great finds while being able to still give their child what they need.
We recently had a photoshoot at Recess in Potrero Hill (Thank you Lisa and Carissa) and it was such a fun day! I'll be launching our new 2017 HT Collection June 2017. Be sure to support and shop our 2017 HT Collection. Limited Supply available.
Therapy Update: Since we've opened HT has helped 25 kids participate in therapy groups hosted by speech and occupational therapists from January - April 2017. As we take a break for May and June 2017 to regroup and figure out what HT's next steps are.
L TARAVAL RAPID PROJECT:
Removal of Parking on Taraval Street has greatly affected Hunter's Threads. Some of you may have been down Taraval recently & noticed that the parking has changed to accommodate new bus stops and driving lanes. This has unfortunately affected our block and what used to be the street parking in front of the store has become a driving lane. This has taken away our parking, ability to drop-off donations and created other complications affecting our overall business. We absolutely love our location but unfortunately were not informed about the new street lay-out prior to signing our lease. We just wanted to give our valued customers a heads up that we will be looking to transitioning into a location with a better fit for us long term. In the meantime, please continue to show your support by shopping in store and online. You can call in advance to help unload donations or find alternative locations for drop off. We will keep you posted on the developments of Hunter's Threads! Email me with any location suggestions! Where would you like to see Hunter's Threads? Email me with any suggestions on where you think Hunter's Threads would thrive! firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are some ways you can support Hunter's ThreadS:
Shop Hunter's Threads online and in store. Check out 2017 HT Collection online. Attend our upcoming HT Events (June 1st- Art Show/Parents Night), attend in store workshops (schedule online) and most importantly shop in store and online to continue to provide subsidized therapy groups for children. We have a waitlist of kids who are wanting to join the group and all the recurring children that want to continue attending our groups. If you know any families who are looking for therapy services for their child, please send them to huntersthreads.com and fill out our intake form. We will be sure to get back to you promptly.
Thank you again for your love and support!
