My name is Olga, I am the owner of Studio Thimbles. It is where I can connect my two greatest passions – sewing and connecting with people through teaching and creating together. With more than 20000 sewing hours under my belt, my vast experience allows me to teach all people beginner sewing skills and allow others to feel the magic of creating something for yourself from a raw piece of fabric. For me, sewing is about taking time for myself from my busy schedule and losing myself to the art of creating through sewing. While I am sewing, I am engaged in the present moment which is grounding and peaceful. Sewing is like meditation and a therapy for me. I have a passion for teaching and passing on my tips and secrets. Come and join me for a beginners sewing workshop and have an amazing experience working and creating together!
