Hello and Welcome to The Silver Thimble! I am Jean, the owner, with a diverse range of interest and hobbies that I have enjoyed teaching during a 34 year career in public education.
Retirement has proven I lack the ambition required for a rocking chair or front porch. However, it has allowed for time to follow a new path of sharing my love of Christmas, sewing and crafts with you and it is very exciting.
Growing up on a farm in Oklahoma, Mom taught me to sew using Grandmother's Singer tredle machine while working on 4-H projects and developing a love for needle work, sewing and crafts. This interest lead to a degree in Vocational Home Economics from Oklahoma State University.
I hope you enjoy my shop where the goal of making quality products in limited amounts in order to creates unique items for your homes.
