Welcome Carrie!

by | Jul 11, 2016

We get so excited when we get to introduce a new member of the team! Carrie has successfully completed her 3 months of training and has learned a lot. She is eager to learn more, and we can’t wait to see how she grows! We sat down with Carrie to find out more about her experience with training and what her ambitions for the future are.
What was your favorite part of training? What did you enjoy learning the most?

My favorite part is learning that I am capable of things I could have never imagined. I’ve loved learning how to make jewelry. I love seeing the process of a product from start to finish.

What is your role at Rethreaded now?

I am part of the production team. I know how to make most our products from Grace Scarves to Dog Chew Toys. I am now learning how to dye t-shirts, and hand-dye scarves. 

What do you contribute to Rethreaded? What strengths do you bring to the table?

I love to learn new things and accomplish goals. I am very teachable. I have been complimented on my enthusiasm and willingness to try new things and my careful attention to quality. I also offer constant entertainment with my silliness and clumsiness.

What skills are you excited to be learning moving forward?

I love the hands-on approach to learning here and all the processes. I get so excited to learn new things, but sometimes get frustrated with not understanding the methods. So what I have really learned is patience and perseverance by working through frustrations and mastering  methods. Those are skills I hope to continue learning, and can help me in all areas of my life. 

What is your favorite part of the day at Rethreaded?

Thankful Huddle is my favorite part of the day. It keeps me focused on what God has blessed me with. It is also cool to see what the other women are thankful for. It gives me hope.

What is your favorite Rethreaded product to make?

Halo Bracelets. I have always had an obsession with heavenly things and it is a reminder of what God has done, and the circle of change that is my life.

(Halo Bracelets coming to the online store in fall! See below for a sneak peak!)

What is your favorite product to wear?

My favorite product to wear is the Threads for Hope Bracelet. I love that I can wear it with anything! I also love the meaning behind the bracelet. I get to tell people about the Rethreaded mission and how my bracelet funded an hour of training for another woman. 

(Shop Threads for Hope Bracelets!)

Where do you see yourself a year from now?

I am taking life one day at a time. A year from now, I will certainly be wherever God needs me to be. My life has changed so much already, in ways I would have never expected. Wherever I am, I just know it will be great.
