Nimble Thimbles is the quilting/crafting section of the Center. The group is dedicated to supporting the Center and preserving the Irish culture through its fundraising efforts. Each year, it produces the exquisite raffle quilt that is awarded to a lucky winner at the Christmas Bazaar. They also craft many handmade items which are available for purchase at the Center’s many festivals. All of its proceeds are donated to the Center.
If you would like to join Nimble Thimbles and contribute with your time and skills, join them Tuesday mornings and/or Wednesday evenings, as we quilt, sew, knit, crochet, needlepoint and tat for the Center. Any skill level is welcome and the Nimble Thimbles offer help if needed. The only requirement is that you must be a current member of the Irish American Center. Can’t join the group? You can contribute to the Center by purchasing one of Nimble Thimbles’ handicrafts as a gift or for yourself!
