I’m Jen Kennedy, enthusiastic sewist, mum, wife and editor of One Thimble digital sewing magazine. My One Thimble journey was far from direct. After leaving school I did the “adult” thing and went to uni and became a pharmacist. But over time I realised something was missing: I needed a creative outlet. The turning point came when my daughter was born. With my newfound “how hard can it be?” attitude, I taught myself to sew… and I haven’t looked back since!
One Thimble was born from my desire to share the happiness I’ve found in sewing, by helping other Mums explore sewing as a creative outlet and enjoy the practical results that come with it. I realised the best way to achieve this, was to make the digital sewing magazine I would love to read!
Each One Thimble issue comes with several on-trend PDF sewing patterns for children’s clothes and other projects. Whether you’re a self-taught beginner or you’ve sewn for years, you’ll love the comprehensive instructions designed to guide you through each project! I know that thorough tutorials by experienced sewists are every self-taught sewist’s best friend. So One Thimble is packed full of straightforward, easy-to-understand, practical articles designed to teach you a range of sewing techniques and tips… the kind you’ll find yourself referring to again and again! One Thimble is delivered as a PDF so you can read it on your computer, tablet or mobile device. You can print out the included patterns pieces from your home computer and read the articles on your mobile device while waiting for school pick-up, in the post office line, bed or pretty much wherever suits you.
One Thimble’s mission is to help you achieve your sewing dreams with useful resources and 100% sewable, wearable and Instagram-able patterns and projects.
I look forward to being part of your sewing journey!
