THIMBLES  ON  WHEELS  (TOW ) is  a  traveling  thimble group.    
The  name   was   chosen   because   members   are  geographically   
diverse and attending meetings usually involves travel  necessitating
a multi-night stay. As almost all forms of transportation have
even planes, our name evolved.

Our goal  is  two-fold:  
1)  to combine thimble meetings with intrastate, interstate, and
international travel, and
2)  to encourage local and regional thimble group meetings.  
TOW joins regional group meetings by invitation and in return we
provide any assistance we can, mainly by advertising the event with
our contact list and web page, and presenting programs if requested.

At  present, TOW  usually  meets  about  twice  a year on  no  preset  
schedule, since  meetings are  scheduled  when  and where  a group  
issues  an  invitation   to   TOW   to   join   their   meeting.   However,
occasionally we've been known to just pick a destination that interests
us, as evidenced by the Branson, Missouri meetings.  Although over
time TOW's meetings have grown in size, they do not necessarily
have to be large.  

One meeting every other year is held at the site of the
Collectors  International  (TCI) Convention (you must  be  registered  for  
the  convention  in order to attend that one).
