14 Days until Threadfest!

Two weeks remain until the doors will open for our biggest Threadfest Sale ever! Where do we get all of our stuff? Donations, and they have been remarkable!

For the
sewers and quilters, we have hundreds of yards of fabric, some still on bolts directly from the store, zippers, thread and all kinds of notions. Additionally, we have several years Quilters Newsletter and Quiltmaker. We also have a huge selection of home decor fabric. Our selection of trims is also amazing as is our decorator fabric samples.  Some are large enough to make drapes or upholster a chair; smaller ones would be perfect for accent pillows.

Cross stitch
fans, once again we have a great selection of cross stitch patterns, magazines and DMC floss. Knitters and crocheters will delight in the many skeins of yarn for sale, patterns and vintage books.

Perhaps the most amazing donation we have received is from SVP Worldwide, the Singer, Viking and Pfaff people in LaVergne.
  They gave us hundreds of spools of sewing and serger thread, patterns, notions and books. 

Pictures of many of these items will be posted on, so check daily for updates. And remember,
everything is for sale at garage sale prices! Sewing and quilting fabric is $1-$3 per yard, home d├ęcor fabric is $5 per yard, specialty boutique fabric is $5 per yard and our infamous “fill your bag” scrap pools are still only $1 per bag.

The sale will be open Thursday, March 29 for early shopping from 5-7.  For only $10 enjoy food, drink and first chance to buy.  Call 615/743-3400 for reservations.  The sale will continue Friday, March 30 from 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. and Saturday, March 31 from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon.  FiftyForward Knowles is located at 174 Rains Ave at the corner of Wedgewood and Rains near the State Fairgrounds.  For additional information call 615/743-3400.  See you at the sale!
