When sewing, thimbles protect the fingers from constant needle jabs. First appearing as far back as the Han Dynasty in China, a thimble is more than an essential sewing tool.


The thimble's rich history makes it a popular collector item as collectors gather thimbles from across time and cultures. Though simple in structure, thimbles can be art pieces. These small, delicate objects make lovely collections that are fun to grow whether you are a sewing enthusiast or just an art fan.
