Slinging Thread is Family

Slinging Thread History

Dad started it all

We are a family business committed to you

We are a family owned company in Northern Colorado. My name is Eric. I’ve been married to Becky for 17 years. We have two boys. In 2019, my dad came to us and said he was retiring from building houses after 40 years. He needed something to supplement his and my mom’s income. So we started a screen printing and embroidery shop in Fort Collins to help them out. Sadly he passed away in December of 2020. We are carrying on in his memory in order to continue being able to help mom out financially.

My dad instilled a strong work ethic in all of his kids. He was just 13 years old when he went to work for the first time. He framed homes for a living alongside his dad and brother. He met and married the love of his life at the young age of 17. He was looking forward to retirement but knew he would have to work part time to make ends meet. So my wife and I decided to start slinging Thread Embroidery to help him supplement their income. Sadly dad passed away in December of 2020. However Becky and I carry on in the hopes that we can help mom stay in her home.

We love seeing your business grow

Becky and I have been married for 17 wonderful years. We met in Longmont Colorado in 2003. We have two boys ages 14 and 10. Becky is a full time mom and a Senior Accounts Analyst. I work days as a mechanic for a shop in Longmont and Slinging Thread in the evenings. We own a small farm in northern Colorado where our boys are actively raising lambs for 4-H. We enjoy gardening, camping, fishing, watching our boys learn about the importance of raising animals and taking our 1950 Ford car out for a drive.
