Meet your editor

Hi, I’m Sara! I started Thimble Editorial because I love helping writers communicate and I’m crazy about crafting. When I get to bring the two together, it makes my day!

About me:

I’m a strong editor. I am a proud graduate of the copyediting certificate program at UCSD, where I studied grammar, style, usage, fact-checking, language bias, and much more. I’ve been editing for years: as a wee teenager I discovered my craft by editing the Harry Potter fanfiction I loved to read, and later I honed my skills in the workplace, editing fundraising letters, web content, product catalogs, and marketing materials. When it became clear that editing was my favorite part of all my jobs, I dove into the UCSD copyediting program to get a professional education.


I know the craft industry. I have seven years of experience working for small businesses in the stationery and craft industries in a range of roles, including product design and production; wholesale and retail sales; curriculum design and teaching; and writing, editing, and marketing. I’ve attended trade shows as a vendor and as a buyer, organized a craft show, managed inventory, and helped launch an online store. 


I’m a fellow maker. I’ve been knitting, sewing, quilting, making jewelry, painting, making books, carving stamps, and messing around since I was a kid. I love making things, and I’ve dabbled in a broad range of media that gives me a good understanding of craft terminology. I’ve even taught classes for kids and adults, and I’m skilled at clarifying written instructions.

I am a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association and the Craft Industry Alliance.
