Melissa Bigger

Melissa Bigger’s first job was in a fabric store and she always wanted to own her own store. Four years ago, she opened the Thread Lightly Studio, located at 1600 S. Wood Dr. in Okmulgee, Oklahoma.


Thread Lightly Studio is a friendly neighborhood quilting, fabric, sewing and Long-arm shop. They sell fabric, notions & patterns, provide classes to teach sewing in their work area, and offer Long-arm Machine Quilting services. They focus on teaching the life skill of sewing for beginners or those wanting to brush up on their skill, and they offer all the supplies you need. They also have an Online Store which can be viewed HERE.


Her advice for future entrepreneurs is “Know what all the fixed expenses will be and get a good CPA.” Follow Thread Lightly Studio to see all the fun projects they are working on and new fabrics, tools and more!
