I just wonder how many of you use your pointer finger vs middle finger for hand quilting. And what type of thimble do you prefer? I keep hearing that once you get the knack, the pointer finger is easier. But old habits die hard, I have always used my middle finger. I still use the metal thimbles that have a brass cap. But thought about buying a Roxanne thimble if I can find a local shop to fit it properly.
Since I have not hand quilted in a while and haven't built up a calous, my finger underneath gets really sore, johnson and johnson use to make a tape I could use to protect the finger underneath for an hour or so before it wore through,they don't make it anymore and now the new tapes leave residue on the needle, any suggestions?
