I’m Victoria and I’m glad to have you here. After I had my first daughter I started to sew. I wanted to make beautiful things for her (and subsequently her sister), in the same way that my Grandma made beautiful things for me.

I believe that a life with craft is a necessity; an antidote to modern living and a welcome escape from life. I also believe in sustainable, ethical choices that look after both the environment and people, and so Thimble End is my place to bring those things together.

Work with Me

I’ve written several sewing tutorials for Love Sewing magazine, published both in the UK and Australia, as well as tutorials for Minerva Crafts and William Gee. I have worked with CICO Books and reviewed several of their craft titles. I have also collaborated with Lottie Dolls, doing an Instagram take-over and writing some blog posts for them.

I have also been interviewed and featured locally in the Sutton Coldfield Observer and Journal Magazine. The Green Parent magazine interviewed me about blogging for their Aug/Sept 2017 edition.

If you’d like to work with me please get in touch.
