Hello there!!! So here is my little (well kind of) story...
In 2011, curiosity got the best of me and I purchased a 1925 10 x 15 Chandler + Price from Lexington, KY and hauled it all the way back to Mississippi on tiny trailer with just one other person as my letterpress-moving sidekick. With the press acquired, I decided to open up Thimblepress. The name was derived from my childhood, now continued on to adulthood, collection of thimbles from my travels. Every time I traveled to a new state I got a thimble to mark my visit. A few of them have broken from moving different places, but I still keep the collection right in my office. The thimble represents my travels, family, grandmothers, and all the big and small things that make life so wonderful. Sometimes just a thimbleful of love, a smile, hug, or glance can change something or make a difference...
