it all started with 3 sisters and a dream...
I am married and a mother of 3 beautiful children. My children are my life's work and family means everything to me. We live just west of Okotoks. We are lovers of all animals and have dogs, cats, horses, chickens, goats, a family of foxes and the odd skunk! We love it! I love the outdoors, am an avid mountain biker and runner.
I've had a hard time finding high quality clothing for my children in Okotoks. Which is really where the idea of Sweet Threads came to be. I believe in teaching my children good fashion habits from a young age and hope it will stick with them as they continue into adulthood. I cherish the resources on this earth as they are here for us to use for our benefit and to be used wisely and with gratitude. Consume less, dispose less. I refer to the clothing we carry as sustainable fashion that can be worn many times by many different children and can be consigned afterwards.
I truly hope you find our store a destination on main street Okotoks, I certainly do!!
I’m a mom of one boy who is currently playing junior hockey in the US. I’ve been a dental assistant for the last 26 years - it’s been a great career but now I would like to do something completely different! My son and I ended up following my parents out here to Okotoks 17 years ago. I’ve travelled a bit and love going to different parts of the world.....but at the end of the day, we call Okotoks home!
We've always been involved in church activities as well as in sports here in the foothills and found it hard to get great dress clothes for hockey games and special events. We were always running into Calgary for things like that!! I feel it’s a niche that has not been filled out here in the Okotoks area.
I take great interest in our community and the things that are happening here and my sisters and I are thrilled to help bring life into the downtown area.
For the past 8 years I have lived and worked right in Okotoks, previous to that I spent 10 years working for the UN in Africa, this is where I gained a strong appreciation for other cultures and the importance of community.
I currently work with a grassroots organization in Okotoks helping Newcomers settle into their lives in Canada. I love to travel and have been around the world (literally!). My starring role is that of "faunty" (fun Aunty) Everyone in my large family will tell you that I AM the favorite Aunt of my 3 nieces and 5 nephews.
I am also a fairy god-mother to a beautiful little Dutch girl, currently living in Holland. I am excited to continue to work within this community in a new and exciting way ensuring that all of us feel a sense of belonging.
High-quality sustainable clothing for children and teens is part of the uniqueness of the store. The clothing we wear says a lot about us. As adults, when we dress better we stand a little taller and behave a little smarter. We believe it is the same for our children.
Lets teach our children good dress habits from a young age so they will know how to dress for success when they are older.
We carry sizes from newborn through size to size adult large.
