More Than Sewing

Sewing is more than just a hobby – it’s a valuable life skill that instills self-confidence through the development of new abilities. Beyond this, sewing can also enhance fine motor skills, improve concentration, and teach the value of patience and self-control.

Mrs. Jen has been teaching children of all ages and skill levels since 2009. Her approach to teaching is individualized and focuses on a building block method. She takes pride in simplifying the complexity of sewing into easy-to-understand lessons for her students. Mrs. Jen’s passion for all things sewing is infectious and she loves nothing more than sharing it with the younger generation. Our low teacher to student ratio allows us to give individualized instruction.

Hi, I’m Jen!

Jen Taylor, Owner

I started Thimble Bee’s in 2009 to share my love and joy for sewing with the next generation. I’m so blessed to have met so many families in the Charlotte area and I’m glad you’re here. I hope you find Thimble Bee’s a comfortable place to learn, be encouraged, and grow in your skill every day.

Come learn with us!

We would love for you to join us at our studio in Waxhaw!
