Summer Stuff

Hey there! Gosh, things've been crazy lately! I left Humboldt county (*tear*) and moved back to Newcastle for the summer. I'll be moving again in August to Chico where I'll be going to school to get my Crops, Horticulture and Land Management degree. Weeee! I can hardly wait.

I'm working at The Tin Thimble over the summer and am so excited about everything thats coming up. We're hosting our first ever Fashion Week (July 12th-17th for those of you who are local and want to come check it out), and our 2nd annual fashion show will be held Sunday, July 17th. More details coming soon. I am so lucky that I love my job and I wake up before work ready and excited to go. I've planned Home Ec classes for June and July and am really looking forward to teaching them. In June the students will be making a pillowcase, tote bag, wallet and an adorable party garland.

In July, they'll be learning how to make coasters, an apron, appliqued hand towels and a kitchen rug. It's SO nice to be back at work and feeling useful again, haha. To my local readers: you should all come in and check out the shop! We just got  a TON of vintage fabrics out on the shelves, the class schedule is full and summer projects are calling. 


  1. If a non-local wanted to come take a class.... is there campign nearby? Is that an option??? Where would one find class listings? xoxo

  2. Hi Jacqueline! You can find class listings at As far as camping, I know there is a place in Auburn (about a 20 minute drive from our shop) that used to be a KOA but I'm not sure what it is now. Other than that, I'm sure there are other places to camp, but I'm not familiar with them. We'd love to have you take a class though! Best of luck on the search for campgrounds.
