Handcrafted Sun Protection Clothing

Handcrafted designs start with an idea, then the artist needs to put this idea on paper and watch it come to life. Sun Threadz designs go through this same creative process. As I mentioned previously I have been experimenting with color incorporated on to the sun protection fabric to give your piece just the right creativity to fit your personality. This color process will be through silkscreening and block printing hand done by me, the artist/designer. We can also collaborate on a particular design you may have in mind, call me or email me to discuss.

Do all the summer things you love and stay sun safe in the sun.

Summer glow tip; add some bronzer to your face cream for that sun kissed look!

Melanoma Awareness Month


Do all the summer things you love!

In honor of Melanoma Awareness Month, a skin cancer that can kill you, plan to have a full body check by your dermatologist. We should all have a dermatologist we call our own to ensure we are monitored and checked for anything suspicious. My dermatologist is at the Abramson Cancer Center University of Pennsylvania Hospital, Dr. Michael Ming. I highly recommend Dr. Ming, he is thorough and thoughtful in his exam and time with you. You can schedule an appointment by calling 800-789-PENN (7366.) Penn Medicine is also providing FREE Skin Cancer Screening on Saturday May 18, 2013. This is a great opportunity to have your skin checked by a Penn Dermatologist to determine your risk for developing skin cancer. Call now since space is limited and appointments are required 215-662-2737. Take your family, tell your friends…could save a life!

I am also recommending you attend the 10th Focus on Melanoma Friday May 17th at the Hilton Hotel, City Avenue Philadelphia, PA  8:00am – 3:00pm. This is a FREE educational conference and you can attend in person or view via Livestream at PennMedicine.org/Abramson/MelanomaLIVE  I hope to see you there. No one should die from skin cancer!
