American Silver Thimbles Sampler

American Silver Thimbles Sampler

A labor of love: I collected all of my thimbles together and with a drawing tablet, pencil and eraser I began to build my Thimbles sampler with layers of designs, each adapted from a favorite American Silver Thimble.

To see photos of each of the thimbles keyed to the sampler, click on the blue button next to the sampler.

Do I have all of the thimbles I adapted? Yes. Could you ever find them if you wanted to have them too? Yes, in time. As an avid thimble collector, I keep track of Carolyn Meacham's auctions. Over time it is highly likely she will help you find the thimbles.

The sampler is 8 3/4" wide x 11 1/4" tall on a piece of white congress cloth 14" x 16".

Threads include 14 different colors of Soie d'Alger and one Planet Earth (a total of 51 strands of silk). In addition 15 spools of Kreinik braid.

The instructions are 48 pages long, plus a title page, 8 Oversize Graphs and a color copy of the finished sampler.

Price includes shipping and insurance.
