Making it in Crafting Re-Threads Foxy Style

Video Interview Re-Threads Foxy Style with Erin Fox Dec 2020 by Chantae Hendrix

November 16, 2019, at the Clermont Candy Cane Lane Craft & Gift Show, in Clermont FL, Erin Fox owner of re-Threads: Foxy Style showcases some of her talents in woodworking design. The entire family was on hand in support of re-Threads Foxy Style. 

The Craft & Gift Show is one of many events hosted by the Clermont Downtown Partnerships designed for community enjoyment. There were plenty of crafts and vendors on hand to accommodate the crowd. The next event First Friday Food Truck & Music on Montrose is scheduled for Jan 3, 2020. 

 Erin designs signs with quotes, images and or sayings bound to appeal and resonate with many people. What makes her product unique, is that the platforms used, consist of aged and recycled wood from used pallets. 

“On average, NIH receives the following for the value of recyclables on a monthly basis:” 

Material Revenue 
Cardboard $ 2,000 
Mixed Paper  $500 
Scrap Metal  $4,000 
Wood Pallets  $1,400

Erin says she learned the skill at a young age. Erin says when she was attending college, her mom ran a similar business called re-Threads. It was at the passing of her mother that Erin then decided to carry on the legacy and run a similar business under her own business name. 

As a wife and mother of two children, through creativity, Fox found a way to leverage her talents, and maximize her time with family, by establishing this self-run business.  She is passionate about what she does and enjoys the interaction with the patrons that visit her booth. Erin says, “running this business allows me to be there for my daughters more and,” and “it brings me great satisfaction when people express how what is displayed on the signs resonates with them.” 

Just recently moved here and now a resident of Florida, Fox and Family are gradually establishing their footprint.  Fox had her booth with the signs for sale at the Clermont Harvest Festival in October and at the Lakeridge Winery Open House in November. Fox says, her booth took second place in the best booth contests.  Erin says, Re-Threads Foxy style will have product on display for sale next weekend November 23, 24 at the Longwood Arts & Crafts Festival in Longwood FL.

Growing up, my Dad, whom was a former U.S. Marine and a now a retired skilled Bricklayer Mason, would often say, “Learn a skill or trade and have a passion for what you do.”   

According to a Facility Maintenance Manager with over 22 years of experience in automation engineering and industrial maintenance, “Nowadays, the workforce is lacking in skilled laborers,” says Alan Nichols.  “Sadly, the demand is high, but the talent pool is limited, he says.”
