Starting A Great Hobby

When was the last time you really had fun doing something outside? It isn't always easy to know where to start, but when you have other friends who are really into their hobbies, things can become a lot easier. I started focusing heavily on getting involved in different hobbies, and before I knew it, I was trying things that I had never had the pleasure of trying before. It was really cool to see how many new things I was able to learn, and within a few months, I felt like a brand new person. Check out this blog to learn how to start a new hobby.

Do You Teach Sewing Classes? 4 Benefits Of Having A Thimble Cage

Teaching sewing classes gives you the opportunity to pass down your knowledge and skills to others. There is also something wonderful about being able to engage in your favorite hobby while earning an income as well. By the time that you've reached the level of being able to teach sewing classes, you have also likely accumulated many gadgets and accessories to go with your machine. Now, it is time to take your sewing stash one step further by giving yourself a little gift. In addition to upgrading your style, a thimble cage offers these benefits that make life as a teacher easier.

Reduce Workspace Clutter

Teaching several classes a day can add up to a large amount of clutter building up on your workspace. Since you need all the room you can get to sew, removing the items that you can makes things better. Wearing your thimble on a beautiful accessory keeps it from getting in the way of the rest of your sewing equipment.

Protect Cherished Thimbles

Many people have favorite thimbles. Yours might have been given to you from someone special, or you may just love how it fits your finger. When you have multiple people who are all working in the same space, it is easy for sewing supplies to get mixed up. A cage for your thimble means that you don't have to worry about your favorite one accidentally going home with someone else.

Keep Up With Your Thimble While Traveling

Taking a sewing project along on a vacation is a great way to pass the time while you travel. You may also travel to sewing conventions, quilting crawls, and other fun events that help you keep your skills sharp as a teacher. Wearing your thimble keeps you from dropping it or leaving it behind in your last location.

Use As a Conversation Piece With New Students

A silver thimble cage is eye-catching, and your new accessory will serve as more than just a way to keep up with your thimble. You'll also find that it helps you to attract and retain new students. People tend to notice thimble cages that are worn on a chain, and you can expect that you will have the opportunity to share a story or two about your heirloom piece or your sewing. When you are not teaching, you might even discover the chance to share what you do with the public. Having an easy opener makes it easy to bring in more students to your classes.

Look in stores or online to find thimble cages
