Honduras Threads....a pillow story!

This little pillow was found on Sunday by John Wyne while he was riding his bike in downtown Dallas. He thought it was odd that a cute and unique pillow would be in the street. John looked around to see if he could find the owner, or figure out where it came from, but did not have any luck. He picked it up and brought it to me at the studio where I was painting. Then he resumed riding. Later he saw two chairs with one pillow out on the sidewalk on Harwood Street...he went inside and met Pamela Nelson, Sally Sloan and M'Lou Bancroft. Yes, he found the home of the pillow that had blown away from Honduras Threads. When we left the studio we returned the pillow to Honduras Threads, temporarily set up in Pamela's studio.
I was so impressed with Honduras Threads that I returned on Monday with Carol Morgan and Sharon Hodges. Here is Sally Sloan, M'Lou Bancroft and Pamela Nelson holding some of the wonderful linen pillow shams and runners that were made Honduran women. Please go to the website for more information: http://www.hondurasthreads.org/

Sharon Hodges was amazed at the quality of these pillows. Wonderful colors, designs and we were wowwed by it all. It was so much fun to visit Pamela's studio and see such wonderful works of art. No two pieces were alike...all stitched with fine craftsmanship. It was wonderful to see it all! Please support Honduras Threads if you have the opportunity to purchase a pillow or runner.


  1. Well darn, I was going to claim that the pillow fell out of the back of my VW Beatle and rush over to pick it up! What a great store Kay. : )

  2. These were fabulous pillows and runners...and 100% of the sale goes back to each individual women who made them. Go Honduras Threads!!!!
