My Great-Grandmother's Thimble



Anna Lindsey’s Sewing Basket is a small cottage business in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. I was blessed with two grandmothers that were skilled at many types of needlework. With the their help, I started sewing small projects for my dolls at the age of nine. My love of sewing, knitting, crocheting and all crafting continued to grow from there. 

For the past thirty years I've spent my time working full time as a teacher/school administrator, working all positions at a summer camp and raising my three wonderful sons. Over the years I have sewed, knitted crocheted and dabbled in many other crafts, making things for my family and friends. My time was always limited, yet now  that I'm retired  I have time to do my favorite pastimes.  Thus, with the encouragement of family and friends I have chosen to continue to share my love of handmade items by producing clothing and items to share with you, your families and friends!

I hope you will keep in touch with me and let me know things you like.  Also let know any items you would like to see in the store. Finally, please let me know  if you have a special request and I'll see what I can do.  You are important to me and I want to make items that you are happy with and will treasure as HANDMADE FOR YOU!
