Description

Have you always been charmed by thimbles, but felt unsure how to use one? Do you gaze at that pretty little cap in your sewing basket, but feel at a loss how to properly make its acquaintance? Would you like to increase your hand-sewing speed, precision, and endurance?

Now is a wonderful time to make friends with your thimble. In this class, teacher Louisa Owen Sonstroem will discuss different types of thimbles. She will then share the “tailor’s technique” of thimbling, which uses an open-topped thimble and is beneficial when hand sewing clothing. Through Louisa’s pre-class video, you can learn how to make your own scrappy, makeshift, open-topped thimble using basic household materials. Or feel free to use your own thimble that fits on your middle finger.
