Episode 9: Meet the Trailblazer Behind Organic Thread
Show Notes

Micro fibres and microplastics can be dangerous for our health when we are going about our hobbies at the sewing machine. Julie Moore recognized this early on in her quilting career and set out to make a change in the industry. She was determined to bring organic threads to the quilting world and has worked for the last 20 years or so to make a difference in the lives of farmers, sewers and quilters. I talk with Julie about her journey to creating naturally dyed threads and her continued interest in improving access to healthy and safe cotton threads.  

Julie Moore founded Fiberactive Organics more than 20 years ago with the mission of bringing organic textiles into the mainstream. Fiberactive now manufactures organic cotton sewing thread for retailers and textile manufacturers around the world.  Julie is passionate about living lightly and with purpose.
