A Thimble for Quilters Who Hate Thimbles

Standard
My friend Vicki was reading my daughter’s blog about her sore fingers from sewing. Sewgirl, aged 14, has been making costumes and was doing a lot of hand-sewing to gather ruffles. Both of these ladies hate thimbles.
I have to admit that I’m used to working with a thimble, but I have fit problems. I generally use the leather thimbles or the gel thimbles, but I think my fingers are just a tad too small for the medium-size, and way too big for the small size. So, although they protect my fingers, they are constantly falling off. Vicki recommended the ThimblePad and — I have to admit — this product is awesome. They stick well and can be re-used once or twice.
They absolutely buffer the needle and protect your fingers. You can also take a break, leave the ThimblePad on, and be able to find it a few minutes later.
The only downside is price. A package is about $7.00. If you’re doing a lot of hand sewing, it’s clearly more economical to purchase a thimble that’s the right size.
