Welcome to thimble and thread make
WE ARE NOW OPEN!
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us throughout 2020, it is so truly appreciated!
Due to moving house just before Christmas, the Boxing Day restock has been delayed - huge apologises! Populare items such as the Backpack and Tote are available for ordering and new items will be added soon (along with the new sewing pattern for making a Basket and new Sew at Home Making Kits)
Please sign up to our mailing list to be kept up to date with all the news and dates!
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.
Since it all feels a little heavy at the moment I thought it would be a good idea to offer my first Valentines Kit and spread a little love. I have chosen a beautiful print! The Kit will be available in a choice of sizes including the ever popular Basket which will be available on it's own or with the added extras. As well as beautiful bags each Kit will come with a supply of surprise goodies just for you to enjoy, this will be ideal to show yourself a little kindness or to gift to someone. KITS ARE NOW SOLD OUT BUT A BASKET ONLY OPTION IS STILL AVAILABLE and will ship in time for enjoying before and after Valentine's Day.
Now in the shop!
Make your own high quality canvas Basket at home using one of our Making Kits!
Kits come in various canvas colours with a choice of linings and everything you need to make a Basket but the printed fabric of your choice. The Pattern is also available as either a beautiful spiral bound booklet or via download through Payhip (scroll down for details and link to our payhip shop).

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.

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.
