Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about us and the desire that drove us to begin our MI threads journey.

We are Michelle O'Connor & Jaime Wielenga. We met when our kids, Michelle's two daughters & my son, played on a Squirt team together . We are 2 moms living the hockey life. We spend countless hours at different rinks in different states. We go in & out of pro shops to get skates sharpened, grab tape, waiting for games to start...or when our kids NEED a new stick. Over time we started to realize that there was one thing missing in every shop. There is no apparel for Women or Girls. There is nothing soft and feminine for those tough gals to slip into when they walk off the ice. There is nothing for us Ladies that live the Hockey lifestyle with simple, trendy designs and a flattering fit. We wanted to change that. We want everyone to be able to show their HOCKEY pride. When designing our tees for Women, Men & Youth quality & softness were the top priority. We want MI threads to be your favorite go-to tee!  That is where it began...

MI threads was Founded in 2017, in Grand Rapids, MI. We are an apparel line inspired by the things around us we appreciate most. The LOVE of our Families. Our PASSION for Hockey. The PRIDE in our home state of Michigan & SUPPORT within our community.  Our incredibly soft tees are Made in the USA, and our designs are inspired by our love of Hockey, and our favorite state. We are grateful to have teamed up with Ambrose Custom Printing, a youth empowering, community building, custom screen printing venture. Ambrose has teamed up with local pubic schools to teach students the art of design & screen printing.
