Add to Trip

Silver Threads & Golden Needles is a full-service fiber arts retail shop located on East Main Street in downtown Franklin. This location is much more than just a store, however. Offering supplies, instruction, and a venue for every step of the process, Silver Threads & Golden Needles works to create a real community for those who love the fiber arts. The shop has a contemporary feel, with high ceilings, walls full of color, and displays of one-of-a-kind knitwear pieces for sale. This community provides a wide range of classes and outings for those looking to learn and grow in their skills of knitting, weaving, spinning, and felting.

Visitors to Silver Threads & Golden Needles can find a wide range of supplies, equipment and books, magazines, classes, and individual lessons to support a myriad of fiber crafts. There is always a staff person on hand to offer demonstrations or project assistance, and finished examples of knitting, crochet, spinning, weaving, felting, punch needle, and embroidery are kept in stock. Silver Threads & Golden Needles stays connected with a newsletter and active social media accounts sharing images and notification of new products and classes.
