While reviews are limited, three Yelpers give Thimble Pleasures a four-star average rating:
- They have a massive collection of fabrics, and tons of books and craft patterns. The sales associates were all very nice & friendly. The store was bright and cheery. The fabrics lined up against the wall & aisles were arranged by color & themes. I could have easily spent hours at this shop (if I didn't have to be anywhere). – Mae T.
