Thimbles aren't just for sewing anymore. In fact, I don't even have a sewing thimble! But what I do have are collectible thimbles. Several years ago, we went to visit my great aunt who lives a couple hours away. While we were there, she gave me her collection of thimbles she accumulated during her travels. I found a spot on my wall for the thimble display rack. From then on, when we go on a vacation or a day trip, I'll most likely come back home with a new thimble souvenir to add the the rack. Now, all the thimbles won't fit in the rack and some have had to migrate to my bookshelf.
