Welcome to Yesterday’s Thimble!

Do you live in Memphis, TN and want to learn how to sew? I’m pleased to announce that we’re open for business again! (If you asked to be notified when I started teaching again, please have patience. I’m working my way through the list.) Before you contact me, kindly read the Student FAQ, Tuition FAQ, and About Sewing Classes.

If you don’t live nearby, you might enjoy our multitude of sewing articles! If you’re looking for beginner-friendly help, check out the how-to guides in Sewing Basics.  More advanced specialized techniques can be found under Tutorials.

For a glimpse into the creative process, take a look at my Sewing Diaries. Many are for historical costuming, but there’s also home decor and crafts, modern garments, and even a few doll costumes! You might also enjoy the Articles I’ve written on a variety of topics related to sewing and costuming.

If you’re looking for sewing supplies or books, browse our Notions Shop, courtesy of Amazon.com.

There’s also my blog (below), where you’ll find sewing hints and tips, book reviews, studies of antique fashion plates, and commentaries on sewing, fashion, and historical costuming.

I strive to keep this site updated with new content, as my health permits, so check back once in awhile!

    Welcome to the Pacific Northwest Melissa. It has been my home for more years than I care to raevel. I’ve lived on both sides of the mountains, and if you get too water-logged, come east. We quilt on the east side too. I like the flying geese project. Chain piecing certainly does speed up the process of assembling many parts for a whole. I came upon your blog through Bellaonline out of New Zealand and Australia. Keep stitching.
