Thimble Collectors International holds a convention every two years. However, due to the worldwide COVID pandemic, the convention that was scheduled for 2020 had to be rescheduled. We will meet in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, in September 2022. (see additional information below)

The 2018 convention, held in Alexandria, Virginia, is where TCI celebrated its 40th Anniversary. The convention was hosted by the Capital Area Thimble Society (CATS) and it was well attended. Those in attendance had a wonderful time.
