Art and Oddities Auction

Art and Oddities Picture

For the first time EVER, Threads of Time is hosting an Art and Oddities Auction! You can bid on gorgeous samples, finished items, interesting display fixtures, as well as some highly collectible toy sewing machines. Think of Christie's and Southby's. Join us for a fun night at this exciting event. We'll have a catalogue for descriptions, and many items will be on display for previewing in our Designing Women's Room beginning August 4th. Shop some of these artisanal projects for meaningful Christmas presents and remarkable gifts. If you LOVE textile art and never have a chance to finish it yourself, then come purchase some already completed projects. We'll have door prizes and tons of fun! No charge but please call is to sign up just so we can be prepared with enough refreshments and chairs. See everyone there!
