Welcome to The Nimble Thimble



The Nimble Thimble opened in August 2009, after a very nervous Jane and Val finally persuaded their even more nervous husbands to let them fulfil a long-held ambition to open a Patchwork and Quilting shop in Buckingham. Just under three years later we moved to much bigger premises just down the road. We have been excited and encouraged by the reaction of sewers and knitters near and far, and every month brings more challenges, more stock, and most importantly, more new friends! We currently stock over 1400 bolts of fabric and more are being added regularly

We stock a comprehensive range of quality fabric and yarns – please telephone us if you have any queries, or better still, call in at the shop!


We are agents for Janome Sewing Machines and have a range of demonstration machines for you to try, as well as needles, feet and other accessories for most machines. Please note that delivery is FREE on all orders over £25.00.

While you are here, please browse our programme of Workshops covering all the skills you need in patchwork, knitting, crochet and rug making, presented by our own staff and some of the famous names in the business. The search box may help you find what you want - you can also search for year and month (e.g. 201010).
