Thimble Museum

Historically, thimbles have had a dual purpose: For one, they were tools used for sewing by hand, but they were also adornment items for the ladies of nobility who loved to embroider. In the past, special events such as the birth of a prince or an important birthday of a famous or powerful person were celebrated with special thimbles made for just that occasion. The exhibit houses over 3,000 items: From simple, to unique, to extremely valuable thimbles. Also, modern, adorned thimbles are produced on site for collectors from all over the world.
