Welcome to thimble and thread make
Welcome to our website!
The date and time of the shop being updated and new products added can be found in the box below.
We will also be adding new blog posts on a regular basis and changing our website content to match the time of year so be sure to keep popping back to keep up to date.
Open and accepting orders online!
Please know that our thoughts and best wishes are with our customers, members of our community and the rest of the world during this time. Please click here see my blog post for more details and how we are navigating through this (updated 20th April)
All orders are now being sent as Standard Delivery (no longer Signed For) as this means I can purchase postage online and then simply drop the parcels into a post box meaning I have no contact with anyone. I can visit the box which is a short walk away from my home as part as my daily exercise which is permitted while the UK is in Lockdown. Please be aware that Royal Mail are currently dealing with a huge amount of parcels and your order may take a little longer than normal to reach you...thank you so much for your patience at this time.
Please do not hesitate in reaching out to me if you need someone to talk, my inboxes are open. Much love x
Virtual Yorkshire Yarn Fest

✨ A Yorkshire Yarn Fest exclusive will be the Flower Friend Basket. Sophie (the show organiser) has come up with the idea of ‘You’ve got a friend in me...in these uncertain times, I think it is so important to know that we have friends to support around us. Especially yarnie friends!’ Some of the vendors will have special products that you can gift to others to show you’re thinking of them and mine is the Flower Friends Basket. Simply enter a different address at check out and leave a note and I’ll pop in a card to let your friend know you’ve sent them a gift. Or...you could also treat yourself!

Canvas Cube Project Bag sewing pattern
Simply click on the image above to be taken over to our (old!) Etsy shop to take a look at and purchase our new sewing pattern!
15 pages of pattern with each step explained, not because it's hard to make (it's actually a really fun project!) but because we want to be totally clear and for it to be easy to follow for any level of sewing skills.
Please check out our Blog for the reasons why we've popped this into the Etsy store rather than this site.
Knitters Carry All Backpack Original now available new 'Light' version
THE project bag! Perfect for taking out and about, using at Yarn Festivals and taking to Knit Nights. Designed and introduced July 2018, this is our most poplar bag!
This Backpack is full of design features perfect for any crafter...made from waterproof canvas, adjustable straps, leather grab handle (this can be replaced with fabric if you prefer), inside built in zip notions pouch and project bag to separate project from bag contents, clear plastic pocket, stitch marker holder, opening in the lining to allow pin badges to be added with backings touching bag contents and back zip for keeping valuables safe.
Due to popular demand to make a slightly different design, the Backpack is now available to order in a Light version....the outside look is exactly the same but it comes completely empty on the inside without any of the extra components such as the pockets and built in notions pouch.
All thimble and thread make products are available Leather Free!
If it is a made to order item simply email within 24 hours of placing an order letting us know you'd prefer leather free and we can discuss what you'd like it replacing with (canvas, webbing, etc). If there's an item you've seen thats already made but uses leather then drop us an email and we can either alter the item or make another for you.
