Thimble & Thrift is based in Surrey and is run by Fee Fraser, a Designer Maker with a sense of humour. She creates quirky stationery and homeware from vintage sourced fabrics and other items.
Fee is a busy mum of two teenagers and her favourite things are (apart from her rather interesting family) picking peas in the garden, hanging out fresh laundry on a garden line and visiting Ardingly Antique fairs and Southwold Pier in Suffolk. She has collected old advertising items since she was 12 and this is her principle source of inspiration. She works from her workroom in the front room of her Victorian house and loves taking her westie 'Mungo' for long walks. Her secret confession? Dunking biscuits!
