Hello from Tenessee! We are down here for a family reunion (my husband’s side) so of course I view this is as an opportunity to check out a new fabric store. I mean how long can you sit around making small talk with people you barely know?

So I Googled up Franklin, TN fabric store and discovered Sticher’s Garden less than a mile from our hotel. How convenient? I had to make my getaway.

To be honest with you, I wasn’t expecting much. Stitcher’s Garden is billed as a quilter shop, so I imagined the selection of fabrics would be fairly traditional (read: old lady). But I was pleasantly surprised.

Stitcher’s Garden had tons of modern cotton prints- it was overwhelming. Immediately I regretted bringing my three-year-old with me – because I needed to focus on browsing.  Anyway – I found some amazing and cute cotton prints that will be perfect for appliqué.  I am sure you will be seeing them soon.

  1. If you’ve got time there is a fabric store in Fayetteville, TN (about an hour south on I 65 and then another 30 minutes on highway 64….I can not say this enough Sir’s Fabrics is AMAZING. No I mean A.M.A.Z.I.N.G- This store has been family run for 60+ years, it is in downtown Fayetteville, right off the square on Elk (left turn) Prices are unbelievable AND it has TONS of chevrons, polka dots, all the current popular fabrics and the most gorgeous home deco fabric at a fraction of the price. It is an hour and 15 minute drive for me and I willingly drive it as often as possible. Not to mention you can’t get the wonderful hospitality from these ladies anywhere else.

    1. Hi Michelle – Thank you for the tip! OH man – I wish I had more time to explore that place. Sounds fantastic. I think my friend’s sewing group may road trip there. I will put it on my bucket list.
