The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

Hi All

Hubby's beeing sent to Nashville for work. He's bringing us (DD and I) along and we'll stay an extra week once he's done with his work-stuff (not all written in stones yet).


Now what can't I miss while I'm there - where's the best thrift store/markeds (fairs) - best fabric-stores? Pin-up clothing stores. And what to do with a 3 yo all day ;)


ALL advise are appriciated!


Ann (going to the the States for the first time ever!)

Oh!  Let me dig through my old emails. There's a lot of fab fabric and thrift stores in Nashville.  I went there to see the "Golden Age of Couture" exhibit.
YAY!!! Thanks! :D

Have you gone yet?  I totally fell through on getting you info, I'm so sorry!  Here is what a helpful native sent me:


- go honky tonkin' on lower broadway! def a fun way to spend your saturday night, although the honky tonks go on pretty much all day if you're not a late-night-out-drinker kind of person. my roommate and i go at least a few times a month haha. the best bars are robert's western world and layla's bluegrass inn (which are pretty much next door to each other; on the block of 5th and broadway); they play really good original country and bluegrass. tootsie's and paradise park are fun too, but be prepared to spend a little more on drinks and be subject to a lot of cover songs.
- textile fabrics on 8th ave is the best fabric store in nashville. they are open on saturday.
- vintage stores to check out: local honey (they also sell local designers :3) on 12th, the hip zipper in east nashville 5 points, venus & mars in belmont (i guess that's karen elson's store?) and flashback & in pieces both on elliston.
- if you like country music and you have a little cash to spare, there is a great exhibit on tammy wynette at the country music hall of fame. i think it is $20 to get in.

Also, check out the FRIST MUSEUM. They have wonderful exhibits there all the time.

We are going in July or August . Tat is IF we're going - DH's boss is still working on it..., I so want to go - so I'm crossing my fingers that there's no cooperation between Vanderbilt Uni and DTU (where DH works).

Thank you so much for all that info - I really REALLY hope we'll get to use it!
