The Nimble Thimble keeps classes simple

 I hope you see something that looks like fun.  Samples are on display at the Nimble Thimble, and we will be glad to help you choose the class that is perfect for you. Is there a special technique or a pattern you have always wanted to try? Let us know and we will do our best to make it a class. 
Our rules are simple, too.
     * Have fun, learn something, and remember there are no mistakes in our classes...only opportunities!
     * Class space is reserved only when your fee is paid. Prices vary, but you can expect about $35 per session for a 3-4 hour class.
    * Supply lists have items required for class. Please bring what is needed, and make sure your machine is in good working condition.
    * Of course, anything you need is available at the Nimble Thimble! Class purchases are discounted 10% in addition to our rewards program.
    * We have machines for rent if you need one, just $10 per session.
    * Cancellations within 2 week of the scheduled class will result in a store credit, not a cash refund.

Come join the fun!

All the Best,
Linda
