Let me introduce you to.................


Mr. Whipstitch, my personnal assistant. He is also Mayor of the Thimblefolk...................I made him for the opening page of my website which has yet to happen. Sarah and I have our own business names and mine is Thimblefolk. I had originally sketched him several years ago as sort of an elf but as I started working on him he took his own personality and presented himself as a distinquished gentlemen from the 1800's.

I found his thimble hat after many months of searching, it is actually a pewter shot glass that is about 2 inches long. I decided in keeping with my love of wool to needlefelt his head and his clothes (except his linen shirt and silk cravat) and the pincushion are all made from wool. He measures about 12 inches tall. He sits on my table in front of a giant pair of scissors and smiles at me all day long....................although he may just stick me with that needle if I don't get busy and start sewing again.

Have a happy day, Barb
