Introducing Lucy & One Thimble Digital Sewing Magazine
Support to Achieve Your Sewing Dreams
Hi! Thanks for taking the time to get to know me a little better.
I’m Lucy Thompson, passionate sewist, mum of 3 energetic kids, wife to an incredibly patient man and very excitingly, I am now the editor of One Thimble digital sewing magazine!
I was taught how to sew at a very early age by my Mother. She continually turned a blind eye as I removed the vintage buttons from my Grandmothers couture gowns and cut the dresses up, re-purposing the garments into little velvet purses. This evolved into a love of creating and at the age of 19 I enrolled into a 3 year Tafe course that covered off multiple aspects of the industry including designing, pattern making, pattern grading, millinery and lingerie. It then took me another 13 years before I actually found my preferred sewing niche. After I had my first child, I was overwhelmed with the creative urge to sew unique outfits for her and in doing so I fell head first in love with pdf patterns and of course met Jen Kennedy and watched her start and build One Thimble.
The One Thimble Story
One Thimble was born from Jen’s desire to share the happiness she had found in sewing, helping you explore your own creative outlet and enjoy the practical results that come with it.
She wanted to support and empower sewists like you to sew things you didn’t think you could, with comprehensive pattern instructions, tips and tutorials.
She also wanted to create a digital sewing magazine with genuinely useful articles and trendy modern patterns that were seasonally appropriate for Australia.
Recently Jen made the tough decision that her time at One Thimble had come to an end. She reached out to me and over a period of six months we worked together closely to transition One Thimble over to be under my control. I am so proud of the history of our magazine and truly hope that it continues to grow and develop under my guidance.
