Get to Know Us

Hi there! I’m Jo Ann, and I’d just like to take a moment and welcome you to The Nimble Thimble. Thanks for taking the time to learn more about us and what we can offer you. From buttons to fabrics to yarn to anything in the world of sewing, quilting, knitting, and crocheting, we’ve got your back. But first, I’d like to give you a bit of background information on who we are and why we’re the go-to shop for all things sewing and knitting.

Est. 1995

We opened our doors over 23 years ago on May 1, 1995. Located conveniently on 21 Putnam Avenue in Port Chester, Westchester County (which is just on the Connecticut/New York border), we’ve been making a name for ourselves for the past 23 years. And it’s been nothing short of successful.

When we first opened, we had just 30 bolts of fabric. Today, we have over 3,000 fabrics, and we aren’t stopping. We also offer Janome sewing machines, buttons, notions, quilting supplies, and much more, and we’re constantly expanding to adapt to the needs and preferences of our customers.

Experts in Janome Sewing Machines

At The Nimble Thimble, we’re the area’s well-known authorized dealer for Janome sewing machines, which are intuitively simple to use but also provide a wealth of features to spark anyone’s creativity. We stand out in the area by not just selling you a machine. We help you choose the right model and offer invaluable tips and instructions to ensure you get the most out of your brand-new Janome sewing machine.

And in the event you need repairs on your machine, The Nimble Thimble can handle almost all repairs and will have you sewing again ASAP. And now’s the perfect time to get a sewing machine. We’re offering some amazing deals and sewing machines are always discounted! Come see us today!

As you can probably tell, I’m passionate about sewing and knitting, and I’m sure you will be, too. If you’re interested in the world of sewing or crocheting but don’t know where to start, we’d love to help you get started in the right direction. With many talented instructors, I’m excited to offer knitting and crocheting classes that will teach you all the tips and tricks you’ll need to get you started on a lifetime of fun.

Of course, I want you to feel at home at The Nimble Thimble. All of our staff is experienced and knowledgeable, but most importantly of all, very friendly. Whether you have a question about sewing, knitting, quilting, our machines, or anything else, feel absolutely free to either call us at 914-934-2934 or just pay us a visit. If we don’t have what you are looking for, we will do our best to get it for you.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Jo Ann
