Have you bought anything from this store? If yes were the prices competitive?
Yes. The Tin Thimble is a small, family run sewing store specializing in vintage fabrics, trims and patterns. They have a small selection of new fabrics and patterns as well. They have a great selection of wool roving and silk fabric for making felted scarves, garments, purses, etc. They offer basic sewing classes along with alot of different felting classes. Prices are fair based on their specialty.
Were the sales people polite and friendly?
How would you rate the quality of the item this store sells?
Everything I have purchased in the store has been top notch. An example - I mentioned earlier that they specialize in vintage items. I had some vintage ric rac that I was trying to match (modern day ric rac has a different texture and I prefer the vintage type myself). So I went to the store with my ric rac in hand and couldn't find anything on the shelf, but when I asked if they had any more in the back - a huge box of vintage trims came out and we were able to match mine perfectly!
How was your shopping experience. Is there anything you did not like about this store?
Every experience I have had at the store has been great. Sometimes I'm just window shopping and other times, I'm on a mission. Either way, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Sharon, the owner, is always so welcoming, you feel like you are part of the family when you are in the store.
Would you shop here again?
Would you recommend this store to others?
Any other comments you would like to add?
Like I mentioned before, this is a family run business and they are very proud of their store - and they should be! It's a small store, but they pack in alot of different things. Along with the items mentioned above, they also have custom made jewerly, baby clothes and other hand made items for sale. They have a great selection of vintage buttons as well.
Even if you are not a sewer, I would recommend stopping by the store just to look at the items on display. They have so many wonderful felted garments to look at, you will be mezmerized and completely inspired at the same time.
