History of a Thimble

History of this thimble, January 25th 1935. This note tells the history of a thimble handed down four generations, and the note was given to the grandmother of one of our guild ladies, who later received it from her mother, adding several generations to its history.

The thimble was over 150 years old when the note was written in 1935. The thimble was made by hand, before thimbles were made by machine, and its owner says it fits her better than any other thimble she has ever tried. What a family treasure!
