March 3-8, 2015, the South African Thimble Collectors Club hosted a
Thimble Indaba at Kwalata Game Lodge within the Dinokeng Wildlife
Reserve near Johannesburg, South Africa.
("Indaba" is the Zulu word for
gathering or meeting)

Thimbles On Wheels was invited to join them and eight U.S. members
traveled to South Africa for the event.  

Total attendance for the Indaba was 32, with 21 attendees from South
Africa, 8 from the United States, 1 from Australia, 1 from Netherlands and
1 from United Kingdom.  

It was truly the trip of a lifetime.  
Above are links to a slide-show of photos and several videos taken
during this event.

We send our sincere thanks to the South African Thimble Collectors Club
for their invitation to attend this fantastic event, and our thanks for all
the work they did to make it such a memorable experience.

For those who attended, enjoy the memories -
for those who were unable to join us, enjoy the photos.  

If you find any mis-spelled names or other typos, please let us know.


Until next we meet – “Happy thimble trails to you…..”
