From one room in a country cottage...

I’ve always had a passion for country crafts and I think their current renaissance is something to celebrate. Sometimes useful, often elegant and always unique, my crafts are created using a wide range of materials from standard brown string and hard-wearing hessian to delicate rose petals and pretty silk ribbon.

The concept behind my designs is one of simple elegance. I use understated materials to create fresh, uncomplicated designs, based on what I think looks beautiful.

I only started crafting a year ago, but since then my life has been taken over by sewing machines, reels of ribbon, felt squares and countless swatches of material. I have fallen head over heels in love with it. I spend my days dreaming of new designs and my nights sat glued to a sewing machine trying to make them a reality.

    All of my designs are entirely my own, born out of my eccentric sense of creativity. I am forever exploring new ideas and new fabrics, searching for inspiration. Everything that I make, I make because I love it and I hope that you do too!

Shop policies

Last updated on February 3, 2013
The following policies apply to all purchases made from Secret Thimble. I have crafted them with the aim of giving you, the buyer, the most up-to-date and detailed information possible.

All of my items are handcrafted and unique, meaning that no two are alike.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
I accept payment via paypal and payment must be made before the item is shipped.

I have no payment deadline in place, however, if a significant period of time has gone by, the item will be relisted and your order will be cancelled.

You are well within your rights to cancel your order pre-payment. I am also happy to refund your money post-payment prior to the order being dispatched. Should you cancel an order post-dispatch, the costs incurred in shipping will be the responsibility of the buyer.
All items will be dispatched within 3-5 working days and a confirmation of your order will be emailed directly to your email address. As the size, weight and shape of my items varies dramatically, I utilise a number of shipping methods, with the aim of getting your items to you in the safest and most appropriate manner. If you require detailed information about how your item will be posted, contact me directly via Etsy or by emailing Alexandra [!at]

I am willing to consider priority dispatch if this is necessary, just contact me directly via Etsy or by emailing Alexandra [!at]

I package my items with the utmost care, using recycled/like new packaging where possible. Although I go to great lengths to ensure that my items are protected during shipping, I take responsibility for any item that is damaged during the shipping process and a full refund will be made.

Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
Refunds and Exchanges
All items sold by Secret Thimble are subject to a 28-day refund policy. Any product that is damaged or unfit for purpose is fully refundable (within the 28-day window) and any incurred costs will be covered by the seller.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note, all of the pieces displayed in the shop are created by hand, so no two items are identical. That’s the beauty of the product! Please allow for slight variances from what is shown in the photos.

In some circumstance it would be possible to create a larger consignment of items, if this were required. Should you be interested in purchasing a large number of items, a discount will be offered from the price shown individually. Please contact me via Etsy or at Alexandra [!at] to dicuss in more detail.
