Hayley, our founder, came back to sewing in 2016 and fell in love with creating clothes exactly to her taste, but often struggled to find fashion forward fabrics to make a truly wearable handmade wardrobe. After working in business development roles for years, in early 2018 the time was finally right to strike out on her own and Thimble and Notch was born.

When she’s not sewing, you can find Hayley drinking gin, reading books, baking cakes and cuddling cats. Follow her on Instagram!
