Several years ago I took part in a thimble swap at an international swap list. This gave a flying start starting collecting thimbles. Most of my thimbles are porcelain or bone china. I have about 8 silver thimbles, new and old. My collection counts 201 as of today.
I know I have some goodies for collectors too, allthoug this is not my main reason for collecting thimbles. Smile.
1. Queen Beatrix of Netherlands crowning 10.4.1980
2. A Tribute to Diana, the Princess of Wales 1961 - 1997
3. The golden Jubilee. To celebrate 50 years reign og H.M. Queen Elizabeth 1952 - 2002
