2007-03-31 14:35:40   This is a great store and a fine addition to the Wedge. I stopped by today and plan to go back and drop some $ here soon. :) They sell alot of smaller designer items and great home decor. The prices are very reasonable. —KimBee

They just opened and are expecting more shipments of stuff soon—we were told to check their myspace page (listed above) for the most current info. Thread feels like a tiny, friendlier version of Urban Outfitters to me (and I've been desperately wanting an Urban Outfitters in Rochester for quite some time), so I'm really glad Thread is here and I'll definitely be back. —RachelBlumenthal

The clothing is really fun and hip, and it's nice being able to support local artists. Check out the cool light in the changing room! —TrishHeckmann

2010-10-26 15:51:12   i love thread, mostly because they carry the more exclusive pieces from Obey that you will not find elsewhere in rochester. the owners and staff are all super friendly and approachable, and will help you find whatever it is you are shopping for. every time i go in that store, i always find something i am interested in. from small independent local designers, to brands that are big in underground fashion. the thing i love the most, is that you won't find what they have anywhere else in rochester. go check it out. —sarah.hilfiker

2011-07-31 18:17:38   Thread also carries some wonderful artwork. I recently purchased one of those adorable little ceramic televisions made local artist Vicki Hartman (you can view them [WWW]here). I've hung it on my wall and love how quirky it is. Thread also has these neat mobiles made out of old books. —EileenF
