Loose Threads Membership and 2018

Dear Loose Threads Members, Happy New Year. Thank you for your support as we continue to grow. Today we’re rolling out a number of improvements based on your feedback that we hope will make your membership even more valuable.  

Welcome to the new LooseThreads.com

Today we’re thrilled to launch the new LooseThreads.com, which brings everything we’re working on under a single roof. Here’s a rundown of the changes: The biggest change is that Loose Threads Intel is now simply called Loose Threads Membership. This is a change in name only, which brings some important simplicity to our brand architecture both internally and externally. All of the old Loose Threads posts are now in a new section called The Archive, with subcategories for our Longform Series. This is also where the Resources are, which include some of our data projects and the original guide of how to start a fashion brand. Ripcord (our newsletter) and The Podcast are now front and center with unique designs as we continue to deepen the offering.

Improving the Loose Threads Podcast

The Loose Threads Podcast is just over a year old. Since then, I've had over twenty amazing conversations with founders, journalists and writers about the intersection of fashion, technology and commerce. What started off as an informal and infrequent experiment has turned into a professionally recorded and edited show that improves every week. 
But there's always more work to do.
