Home Upcoming Classes

Simple Thimbles’ afterschool program consists of 2 separate levels. The students start with Beginner Level and move their way up to Advanced Level. Both levels runs for 6 weeks with a one 1hr 15min class per week. The students build upon the skills learned from each subsequent level. Overall the program provides over 12 or more unique projects, typically completing one project per class. We have created the curriculum to where several projects include a take home instruction sheet for home use. In our afterschool program we provide all tools and materials so the students come as they are. If you are a teacher or school and you have interest in incorporating our program at your facilities, please contact us to discuss further.

The seasons’ celebrations bring out our giving as well as creative sides. We look to make things for ourselves and for others. Simple Thimbles offers seasonal workshops for many occasions: Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, and more. No sewing experience necessary.
