Thimble Collectors International (TCI) provides information about thimble and needlework tool collecting to TCI members. We do this through our quarterly publication, TCI Bulletin. Our biennial convention features advanced learning opportunities from internationally acclaimed experts. We additionally promote research and scholarship, publishing specialized booklets on thimbles and related needlework tools. Finally, the Members Only portion of this site features additional resources for advanced study.
TCI encourages friendship and service among members who have formed or belong to regional and international thimble groups, and through our biennial convention held on even years.
We invite you to browse through our site and hope you will consider becoming part of our global membership.
