Alley Poet’s Pen: “Just Keep Sewing Girl!”


*One of an occasional series of profiles that Alley Poet likes to pen of local businesses and people who make Downtown Nashville unique…

Alley Poet's PenNashville, TN – They say that color and variety make a good neighborhood or city scape. Places where your eye has something stimulating to land on can invigorate a walk, or even change a person’s perspective. Most of you know I walk the Downtown Nashville city streets every day.

In spite of the bulldozing going on in Midtown and the subsequent “homogenizing” factor such overdevelopment brings, downtown (and I know, I know East Nashvillians, you’ve got a major indie factor!!) still seems to have its share of local flavor. One place that never disappoints is Karma Clothing on 3rd and Church.

Fabric Outlet Is Definitely Still in Business!


Clarksville, TN – “I’m so glad that you did not close!” is a common exclamation these days as customers arrive at Fabric Outlet, the not-to-be-missed purple building at 211 Holiday Drive in Clarksville. Current owners Rose Pollard and Joyce Turner rescued the business when the former owners decided they wanted to sell.

The announcement that “We’re going out of business!” was greeted by one customer with “But what will Clarksville do? What will the nation do!” as she couldn’t stand the thought of not being able to buy upholstery and drapery fabrics locally. When Rose and Joyce considered that alternative, they decided the only answer was to keep Fabric Outlet open and improve its offerings.
