This Week's Topic:

Thimbles: Love 'em or Hate 'em?

For all my love of handsewing I am not a thimble person.  The first thimbles I ever used were way too big, so I think I never learned because I couldn't find a good one.  I do use a leather thimble every once in a while, and I have a pair of well-fitting metal thimbles now for leather working, but I still sew the majority of my work without them.  Sure, I stick myself sometimes, but I'm not really a bleeder so I just bear it as part of the price of sewing.

  1. I use thimbles, especially when sewing through thick fabric, although I often tough it out when I can't find my thimble and/or am too lazy to look for it. Which is fairly frequently.
