Blog Winner and Preparations

Hello Everyone!

It's Hannah writing to you today. I'm home from school for the weekend and returned to a bustling little Thimble! We have so many guest instructors coming and events coming up that my to-do list was quite long. I love to see the calendar filled with events and classes!

Firstly, I would like to announce our blog giveaway winner from the previous post. Congratulations to "ga447"! Please contact us to tell us what color theme of vintage linens, fabrics and trims you would like us to send you! Our contact information can be found here. Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the giveaway!

In addition to guest instructors such as India Flint, Nicola Brown, and Leiko Uchiyama coming to teach at the Thimble, and events like the Fourth Annual Student Art Show, and our Six Year Anniversary Celebration, I am so excited to announce that Emma and I are planning events for the Third Annual Fashion Week and the Summer Handmade Wardrobe Fashion Show this week! This event will take place July 9th -13th, and Emma and I will have the week's festivities posted here by the end of the week.

I have started thinking about the show and started matching some of my favorite patterns and fabrics! I'm not sure if I'm more excited, or more overwhelmed by this assortment of projects...

Emma is working on a lovely pair of Colette's "Iris" shorts out of a stretch pique. They will be beautiful  addition to her wardrobe and the fashion show when she completes them!
