This is handy when I am working with thicker fabric. I used it a lot when stitching on a canvas bag.
As I'm getting older, any help that I can get to pull needles through with my thimble fingers is amazing. I totally recommend this product.
Someone I follow on Instagram recommended this ages ago, and so I got one to use for finishing off thread when I cross stitch. I don't use knots, and when I get to the end of the working strand, I slide it under a few stitches on the back and pull it through to secure it. The trouble is, I am a pretty tight stitcher, so it can be a bear to pull through, and before I got this, I had very sore fingertips after working for extended periods. This little tool makes it much easier, and I no longer end up with sore fingers.
I haven't yet tried it, but I also imagine this tool would be indispensable for hand sewing thicker fabric, for example when decorating or mending denim.
It is slightly inconvenient to wear it all the time, but It works well when it gets hard to pull the needle through layers.
I have wanted this thimble for a awhile but I didn't think I would use it enough. However I have used it more than my other thimbles and needle puller has saved my fingers and my needles. I love it.
Ready, set, stitch!
