Even if you don't collect anything and you are not going to do it, look in my site because of your curiosity. I should say that collecting of thimbles is a sort of exotics in Russia. There are many countries where we can find societies of thimbles collectors, there is a museum of thimbles in Germany, various books about thimbles are published all over the world, but we have nothing of that kind in Russia. Collecting of thimbles isn't so popular in Russia as in Europe or in the USA. It's to put it mildly. We can name from memory Russian collectors of thimbles. It's very strange that our collectors in the main collect foreign thimbles, which they carry from their trips abroad. But I want to attract your attention to our Russian thimbles, because it's a part of our Great Russian culture too, though it's quite possible that some people won't agree with me. But in order to do it you should become acquainted with my information.
You are welcome to my site.
