A Little About Us

Threads Retreats has been a vision for a few years that has finally come to fruition. When a group of my sewing friends would get together to sew it would take a full day to set everything up and then another to break it all down. We all loaded our cars with tables, lights, ironing boards. The list goes on. Ladies you know what it takes to set up the proper work space. Threads has it all!

Lyvonn Reese – Owner

Lyvonn Reese attended a handful of quilting retreats over the years, and while she always had a great time she would come home from the getaways more exhausted than before she’d left.

She and her girlfriends would haul tables, irons, ironing boards, and lighting for just a weekend trip. Although she loved the time with friends, she started daydreaming about creating her own retreat where guests could simply show up and enjoy a weekend of sewing and quilting in a quaint and whimsical home.

Now, over two years later, Lyvonn has two retreat centers with everything a quilter could ask for. With one in Murfreesboro, Tennessee and the other on the beach in Edisto, South Carolina, Lyvonn loves sharing her dream come true with women across the country.

Lyvonn lives in Murfreesboro, Tennessee with her husband. She has four children and two grand-baby's. She loves family, traveling, and of course.... quilting!
