I really like how comfortable this palm thimble is and the ability to use it to pull the needle out is an extra benefit. Definitely a keeper
These thimbles are the answer to my prayers!!! I am a beginner Shashiko stitcher but have been a soft sculpture artist for years. Often I am going through multiple layers of different fabric and need a boost to get my needles through. These are comfortable and the strength from my hand is better than the ends of my fingers. The leather thimble is so much easier to use than a metal thimble of any kind. I’m so happy I tried these and I highly recommend them to any and all types of stitchers.
Does exactly what it's supposed to and protects my palm. I love the little flaps for pulling the needle through.
I’ve been doing kantha quilts and with the first one my fingers were so sore and my thumb split twice. I bought one of these and started pushing with it on my palm and WOW, what a difference!! No more sore fingers! I was so pleased that I bought another so I could have them in different organizer pouches.
When I first felt the leather of this I wondered how well it would grip, the leather was so buttery and soft. I used it while working on a sashiko project and couldn't believe how easy it was to grasp the needle and pull it through! I did find it a bit awkward, at first, figuring out where to wear it so it was most comfortable and easy to access -- I think that's a major benefit of this thimble, it is so versatile in how you can position it and use it. Here's hoping some more colors will be restocked soon, this is the sort of tool I'd like to have in a few places!
Ready, set, stitch!
