WHAT IS A THIMBLE AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

A THIMBLE IS A SMALL HARD PITTED CUP WORN FOR PROTECTION ON THE FINGER THAT PUSHES THE NETTLE IN SEWING. USUALLY, THIMBLES WITH A CLOSED TOP ARE USED BY DRESSMAKERS BUT SPECIAL THIMBLES WITH AN OPENING AT THE END ARE USED BY TAILORS AS THIS ALLOWS THEM TO MANIPULATE THE CLOTH MORE EASILY.

OTHER THOUGHTS OF THE THIMBLE: "JUST A THIMBLE FULL" "THIMBLE THUMPING" "KEEPSAKE"

1. OPEN END THIMBLE TENDS TO GIVE MORE AIR AROUND THE TOP AS SWEAT IS A CONCERN IN THE CLOSED END THIMBLE. 2. TEACHERS IN THE PAST USED THIMBLE ON A FINGER SO THEY COULD THUMP THE TOP OF THE HEAD OF A STUDENT WHO MAY NOT BE LISTENING OR MAY BE CREATING A DISTURBANCE IN CLASS OR PLAYGROUND. 3. PROSTITUTES USED A THIMBLE ON A FINGER TO PECK ON THE WINDOW WHERE THEY WERE SETTING IN CLEAR VIEW OF MEN PASSING BY. 4. USED TO MEASURE GUNPOWDER 5. USED TO MEASURE SPIRITS 6. 16TH CENTURY TO PRESENT THIMBLES WERE CONSIDERED A PROPER GIFT TO A SPECIAL AND PROPER LADY. 7. TODAY IT IS ONE OF THE MOST ENJOYED COLLECTIBLE ITEMS I KNOW.
