OT20 Sneak Peek

One Thimble Issue 20 releases this Friday!  If you’d like to look inside One Thimble Issue 20 check out this flipbook!

New to One Thimble and wondering how it works?

One Thimble is a digital sewing magazine (e-zine).  It is delivered as a PDF file and you can flip through it like a magazine on your computer or tablet device.  Patterns can be printed out on a regular home computer and assembled as you would with a regular PDF pattern.

Purchasing an issue of One Thimble will get you two download links.

One is the link to the E-zine – it has the articles at the front and all the pattern tutorials at the back (but not the pattern pieces).

The second link is to a ZIP file with the stand alone patterns all separate.  You’ll find the pattern pieces here.

If you have any other questions just send me through an email to

Keen to get your copy?

One Thimble Issue 20 will be available to purchase HERE after 10th August.

If you’d like to get your copy the day before, you can purchase a subscription from HERE.  Subscribers get their copy the day before everyone else!
