Our Story

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved fancy dresses. I remember playing in an old prom dress and mama let me play in her wedding dress. I love the styles, and creating them, and everything that’s involved in the process of making something that turns out beautiful. This path brought me right back to my passion. This is my passion. Sewing is my craft. It’s my hobby. It’s my life, and I owe that to my mom and my grandmothers, who were quilters and seamstresses.
The business’ namesake, Pearle, was my great-grandmother, who taught me at age 5 to sew on an old black Singer treadle machine. My mother was constantly chiding the young protege to “put that thimble back on” as she worked – thus, the business name Pearle’s Thimble.
