Atomic Fibers is a fabric and yarn shop located in Oak Ridge, TN. The store's retro flair and modern designs, complimented by the historic backdrop of our community, attracts fiber enthusiasts of all ages and styles.
Owner, Karen Davison had a passion for sewing since a very young age, and had the aspiration to open up her very own business.
I opened in the winter of 2015 with a goal to meet the creative needs of sewists, quilters, and yarn enthusiasts by providing them with high quality products and services that are competitively priced and reflect the latest industry trends. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is always on hand to inspire, assist, and educate our customers to ensure their crafting enjoyment and success.
Karen has been sewing since the age of 8, having learned the skill from her mother. Her handmade garments won numerous 4-H competitions, but despite her talents, sewing took a backseat to her career in large corporate companies for over 36 years. A granddaughter's request (4 years ago) for a horse quilt spurred a renewed love of fabric, color, and patterns. Karen has since blessed her family with numerous quilts designed specifically for each person's personal interests. Karen has been married over 25 years (to an Electrical Engineer) and is a mother two sons, one granddaughter, and two grandsons.
