About the store

The Status Thimble® was founded on Primrose Road in Burlingame in September, 1976 as a full-service hand needlework shop. We continue, as we start our 36th year, to be aware of our responsibilities to serve the needleworking population of the San Francisco Peninsula through providing classes, private instruction and consultation, supplies and materials, books and tools and fine hand finishing for needlepointers, counted thread stitchers, embroiderers, ribbon embroiderers and specialists in stumpwork, blackwork, redwork, crewel, Assisi-style work, silk embroidery and hand appliqué.

We are happy to join the larger needlework community through our website and our memberships in ANG, EGA and TNNA. Mail orders are cheerfully filled.

All forms of hand needlework are a creative activity, a way to capture a point in time and a form of recreation. Our classes and our customer services are structured with these ideas in mind with a conscious effort to preserve the needlework art forms.
