TCI has for many years, maintained an extensive archive of slide programs.  These are programs that have been presented at past conventions and local thimble groups. We are very fortunate to be able to enjoy these wonderful programs, photos and research from the past.   Many of these collections are no longer intact and some have been sold at auction.

The TCI Educational Rentals Archive is honored to be the repository for these gems of thimble and needlework tool collection history and to be able to share them with you.

With the coming of the digital age, the slides have been converted to digital format, preventing further deterioration and making it easier for most members to view them.  (For those not yet into the computer age, the slide programs are still available for rental.)  If you have already seen some of these programs in the past, don't hesitate to check them out again now that they have been digitized and enhanced.  You will be pleasantly surprised.

Newer programs have been created digitally in CD and DVD formats, and thanks to the generosity of our member/authors we also have many recent programs in the archive for the education and enjoyment of TCI members and their local groups.

New programs are being added as they are donated.  For an up-to-date list of all programs that are available in the Rental Archive, CLICK HERE

Be sure to follow the rental instructions at the bottom of the list and very soon the postman will bring one of these wonderful treasures to your door for your and your group's viewing pleasure. 

Here are just a few of the enhanced photos from different slide presentations to peak your interest!
