Business Spotlight – Brave Fabrics

Today I’m super excited to introduce you to Erin from Brave Fabrics.  Erin curates a wonderful range of designer fabrics in her online fabric store that are suitable for clothing for kids and adults, as well as quilts and homewares.

However, the real stand out fabrics in her range for me are her bold fabrics for self-care sewing.  If you struggle to find voiles and cotton/silk blends and other apparel fabrics with great drape then Brave Fabrics should definitely be on your must visit list!

Business Spotlight – Handbag Hardware Australia

Handbag Hardware Australia Logo Today I’d like to introduce you to Kylie from Handbag Hardware Australia.  I’ve shopped with HHA many times and Kylie has always been super helpful even when I wasn’t exactly sure what I was looking for!  One of my favourite things about HHA is that Kylie stocks hardware “kits” for many handbag patterns (including those we’ve had in One Thimble).  This means you can get all the hardware and interfacings etc from the one spot!

Back in January I was lucky enough to meet up with Kylie on our family holiday and she’s just as sweet, generous and helpful IRL!

Interview with Suzanne from Winter Wear Designs

Suzanne Winter Wear Design Today we’re chatting to Suzanne from Winter Wear Designs.

Suzanne studied costume design in college, but first learned to sew from her mom. She designs clothes that her active kids can play in, that make them feel special, and that are finished in ways that will keep them comfortable. She also designs for women, because as a curvy gal, shopping in stores can be frustrating.

She has been a two time contributor to One Thimble.  She contributed the Cozumel Shirt to Issue 12 and the Amuse Boho Dress & Tunic to Issue 14.
