Something New

Hello!

We have decided to mix up our blogs a bit. Instead of Emma writing every blog, I (Hannah) am going to  start writing a few as well.  So, hello everyone! We are also going to start showing you bits and pieces of our lives outside of the shop. Yes, amazingly enough we all have time to do things outside of the Thimble!

Mom has been a sewing fool lately. She is on a mission to make herself 12 new clothing items for summer, and we're going to keep you updated on how she is doing. So far, over the past 4 mondays (her only day off), she has sewn herself 6 items. She amazes me. Here is the first one! Drumroll....



This beauty is made from a vintage pattern and the most gorgeous vintage cotton and it fits her like a glove. Keep an eye on our posts for more! We'll be showing you a new one each week.

You know you have the greatest boyfriend ever when....


he crochets you a beanie for Valentines day! He even made it out of wool yarn from the Thimble.

A huge thank you to Matthew for making me such a heartfelt gift. I'll take this over chocolates any day!

sweet boyfriend :)
You need to also show your mom in the clothes. Maybe when it gets a little warmer!

I agree! It was freezing outside when I took these pictures so she obviously didn't want to wear them then. We have a little trick up our sleeves though....you will see her in them at some point!

Hey, can I come in just to sew or use your workshop during the day when you don't have classes? I need something bigger than my dining room. Also, is there a charge? Thanks.

Your mom IS amazingly talented...very cute dress. Can't wait to see her in it...and what an impressive boyfriend! It would be a sweet gift even if it didn't fit. The fact that it is so cute is a bonus...Renee

Amy, you are more than welcome to use our space! We'll just need to coordinate a day when we don't have any classes going on. Also, if you wish to have a heater on while you're here you will need to pay $20 for the day. Give us a call if you have any other questions! 916-652-2134
