My name is Olga, I am founder of Studio Thimbles where I combine my 2 greatest passions – sewing and connecting with people through teaching and creating together! I have more than 20000 hours of sewing under my belt. With such experience now I teach kids and adults beginner’s sewing skills, magic of creating for yourself from raw piece of fabric.
Sewing for me is about taking time out for myself, leaving busy routine behind me. As I am sewing and creating, I’ll bring awareness to the present moment that's grounding and peaceful. Sewing is like a meditation and a therapy for me. I have passion for teaching and passing on every bit of my knowledge, my tips and secrets. Come join me for beginner sewing workshop and an amazing experience!
My studio is in Subiaco on Rokeby road and just minutes walk from train station.
