thimblecap has joined the assembly

And by that, I mean THE ASSEMBLY, ZeroThreeTwo‘s store.

My items, however, will not be listed on their online shop, but in the physical one. Which is really all sorts of exciting because I can now say that Thimblecap has penetrated the mall. *squeeeeeeee*

The Assembly by ZeroThreeTwo is located at JY Square Mall in Lahug. It’s right between LBC and Watson’s.

And a photo of me sewing the items above, during that one stormy last week:

Aside from The Assembly, I also have purses on display at The Chillage.

As I type this, I think about the many ways with which we can expand the reach of Thimblecap. I am imagining days of working my butt off, lugging materials around from downtown stores, drinking a gallon of coffee each week, and pretty much loving every single step. Insert second delighted squeal here.

DIY or DIE

They’re here! 

Okay, HERE is a little explanation for the excited tone. To say that I am thrilled about these new additions to the shop is an understatement. This time, we are going beyond handmade. We are taking another step to carry the flag of handmade.

Thimblecap celebrates the makers, builders, and washi tape hoarders. We salute those who make their own jewelry, sew their own clothes, make their own shelves, and bind the books to put on said shelves. We raise our flags to those who reuse, recycle, and refashion.

Here’s to crafters of all kinds — people whose days are besieged with pin pricks, paper cuts, perpetually paint-smudged hands, and unfinished stories.

The shoulder bags will be sewn by me. On top of these shirts and bags, prints will be made available, too. Imagine an art print of this design hanging in your craft room. Nice, right?

We shall be launching these print Thimblecap merchandise this weekend, May 31 to June 1 at the HYPERCEBU fair. Here are more info about the event:

all signs are stamped

The post title sounds like something you will read tucked with a map one rainy evening as you aimlessly open books in the library. ALL SIGNS ARE STAMPED, the note says, and you’re suddenly filled with a sense of purpose. An air of foreboding settles around you but you have been given a mission. Armed with the map and the knowledge that all signs are stamped, you set off to a life of adventure. And in so doing, alter the course of the universe.

Wild yet derivative imaginings aside, the post title is merely a 4-letter summary of my latest DIY project. I made signs for an upcoming bazaar. And they are stamped.

These are not stamps I carved myself. These are letter blocks the boyfriend got for me several years ago. I think that these were used for making school projects, at a time when home printers were still a thing of the future.

It comes complete with currency signs, too! Perfect for the signs I made. Signs, by the way, are essential in selling at fairs. You turn passersby to potential customers when they are drawn by the things they can read in your booth.
