Collection de dés à coudre (Sévérine, France)


Je m'appelle Sévérine ROBIN. J'ai une petite collection de dés à coudre.

Je n'en ai pas beaucoup à côté de certains collectionneurs vus sur votre blog!... Mais ça augmente lentement...

C'est en les regardant que j'ai trouvé le non de mon entreprise (je suis installée comme couturière depuis la mi-octobre): I dé à coudre... Qui a fini par se transformer en Ideacoudre pour le Net...

Bonne journée

Exchange (Agnieszka, Poland)

In Thimbles of the World you can also show your exchange propositions, give some information about your exchange preferences and links to photos/descriptions of your thimbles.

So, let me start the exchange topic!

You can see my current propositions in the checker below:

I am the most interested in thimbles:
- hand-painted,
- made of original materials,
- porcelain with signatures,
- from countries that I do not already have in my collection.

I am not interested in thimbles:
- with flagues, cities or countries,
- ceramics or porcelain with transfers produced in larger quantities.

You can always check currently offered thimbles (pictures and descriptions) at My Thimble Collection blog and remind my exchange preferences via the Exchange section. If you would like to exchange send your propositions.

Souvenir thimbles (Merete, Norway)

Since 1997 I have collected thimbles. Souvenir thimbles, that is. Instead of bringing home loads of souvenirs that will just be stuffed in boxes and stored after awhile, I found that a thimble collection would be much better. They are small and easy to bring home, and put together, they are also decorative.

I love travelling, and my collection is slowly growing. Friends and family have found that a thimble is a great gift when they are out travelling to, so I have two displays in my living room – one with thimbles from places where I have actually been myself, and one with contribution from others.

The sad thing is, that I started collecting 'so late in life'. I am missing thimbles from several places I will hardly visit again, such as Seychelles, Mauritius, Bangladesh, China and Bulgaria.

This is a great site – and if anyone reading this actually have souvenir thimbles form any of the countries mentioned above, and are willing to sell them to me, please contact me on my blog.

Greetings from Norway!!!
