Title:  

Brass Thimble, 18th-19th Century

Content Description: 

The thimble was an important part of a Homesteader's daily life. The owner used it to protect her finger from pins and needles when she was sewing clothes, samplers and bed linens. The responsibility of clothing the Homestead occupants fell to women. In Ethan Allen's time, women turned raw flax plants into linen garments by spinning, weaving, and sewing year 'round. Fanny Allen had several daughters and one hired hand to help her with this seemingly endless task.
