ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - The Thread is a show that sews the St. Louis community together one story at a time. Tim Ezell and Virginia Kerr take you on a ride through area neighborhoods, shops and restaurants.

This week, Tim and Virginia share a little insight on how the show came together, with a little help from St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson.

They introduce us to Natalie DuBose, whose business, Natalie's Cakes and More, was one of the dozens of Ferguson and St. Louis area business damaged or destroyed after a grand jury did not indict Ferguson, police officer Darren Wilson for any crimes related to the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. DuBose picked up the pieces and rebuilt, helping other Ferguson businesses along the way.

The two also preview Ferguson’s Streetfest and St. Louis Scottish Games. They event taste a couple of Haggis fritters from the Scottish Arms.

Then, they try…try to work on Tim’s dancing skills before giving Fredbird  a chance to audition for the show.
