Welcome to Thimblestitch at Zoë’s


Just to let you know, if you haven’t heard already, that I am having my hip replacement on Friday 20th December! Therefore Thimblestitch will be closing a day early for Christmas on Thursday 19th December at 4.00 p.m. and re-opening on Tuesday 7th January at 9.00 a.m.

During my recovery Thimblestitch will be open as normal although it may be worth phoning to double check especially if you are making a special journey as there may be staffing problems or on a Saturday afternoon we may have to occasionally close early, to save any disappointment.

Thimblestitch would like to wish their customers a Happy Christmas and A Happy and Healthy 2020!

I will look forward to seeing everyone in February fully recovered!

I am Zoë Hughes and although I specialise in quilting and patchwork techniques, I have also been involved with every aspect of creative textiles in East Devon for 20 years, advising, teaching, conducting workshops, exhibiting and arranging displays and exhibitions.

Lately I have decided to combine all my craft activities, and work from one place – Thimblestitch at Zoë’s. Here, I have a dedicated workshop area, specially equipped for quilting, patchwork and a variety of other textiles projects, combined with a further area where an extensive choice of materials, threads and practical equipment is for sale.

The workshop area is already booked for many courses and workshops and the aim is to both widen the range of activities and to bring in experts offering a variety of skills to pass on.

Thimblestitch at Zoë’s is located in Honiton, where there is a proud association with textiles - Honiton Lace is known the world over. It is easily reached from both Honiton Town Centre and the A30. There is ample (free) parking and, of course, you can be assured of a warm welcome whenever you choose to visit.
