How many do you have? When you find one that works for you do you stick with it or keep buying more to see if you have found a better one?
My little collection of thimbles. I love my hand held thimbles the best for quilting – I lost one, bought another to replace it and then lost both – bought another and now I have three – haven’t lost one since! the colorful rubber pieces on the ends of two of them helps from dropping them when hands are cold and dry – they are the things you stick on the ends of pencils for better grips – stretch them enough and they fit. 3 of the inexpensive open fingernail thimbles – one fits on the thumb and I liked it for awhile never use them now. Love the Roxanne but find it too heavy – love the TJ Lane thimble – the fancy one with the open nail area but the little peak on the end presses into my finger too much! The stick on’s work great with applique and hand piecing and quilting. The leather thimble gets in my way.
What kind of a thimble collection do you have?
EDITED: I have been asked can I demonstrate how to use the hand held thimble – it is hard to get photos of the right angle to show this, their web site shows how to do it.
