The Knaughty Knitter was established a little over ten years ago. Our goal was not only to create a viable business for ourselves in our retirement years, but also and more importantly to form a vibrant fiber arts community in Murfreesboro and Middle Tennessee. Our first location was in a little yellow house on North Walnut Street here in Murfreesboro. As the fiber community continued to grow and along with it the reputation of The Knaughty Knitter, it became a well known source for knitting, crochet, weaving and spinning supplies and equipment. At the same time the store became a center for groups, classes and workshops in the fiber arts. We are so grateful for our community of fiber people who have supported us over the years.
Out of this solid foundation came a desire to share this with the community. A new organization, Fiber in the Boro, was formed with the skilled organizational efforts of Meredith Kermicle, Jan Quarles, Darlene Dralus and Christina Consiglio. The first festival at the Lane Agricultural Center drew over 600 fans. Since then the attendance has steadily increased. It is again scheduled for another great yearly extravaganza.
Meanwhile, The Knaughty Knitter continued to grow and became too large for the little yellow house. We moved to a new location near Interstate 24 with more space and potential for growth. With now a billboard on the interstate and official State attraction signs, the store has become a great stopover for tourists.
Now, after over ten years in business, our personal health and stamina has diminished and we are looking for folks that would want to carry on the tradition of The Knaughty Knitter. We are offering the business for sale. Due to our financial position and our desire to maintain the integrity of the tradition in the community, we are willing to offer several different options to take over the business. Anyone who thinks they would be interested please contact us.
