Welcome to Yesterday’s Thimble!


I am now retired from teaching sewing classes, but not from writing. This website is designed to help beginner and more advanced sewists alike!

You’ll find help with basic sewing, along with historical costuming and cosplay, home decor, fabric designing, doll costuming, organization, and even fashion sketching!

The blog section contains sewing hints and tips, book reviews, and studies of antique fashion plates. If you’re looking for something specific, use the categories and tags, or the search bar (top left). Still can’t find what you need? Contact me!

    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.
