- Rescued Threads was birthed out of one artist's desire to live simply and holistically. Combining green living with the awareness that cotton is being genetically modified, MHaub committed to using only preexisting fabric in her work. Each piece by Rescued Threads is made by hand using recycled, repurposed, reused materials and fabrics. Supplies may come from thrift stores, garage sales, donations or may be remnants and scraps from other projects. Pieces are available locally.

Vintage buttons and yarn rescued from a thrifted afghan are crocheted into bangle bracelets and cuffs. Old t-shirts are rescued, snipped and stretched into yarn. Next, the yarn is crocheted into flowers or hand-stitched into spirals, then vintage buttons and pin backs leftover from previous projects are sewn in place.
Pieces of Rescued Threads have begun to make appearances in public. I hope to officially launch at a local event in November. Keep checking here for developments!
