    I read an article recently on "ergonomic thimbles" and would like more information and how to purchase these thimbles.

    Thanks

    That will tell you about them and let you order them also.

    I don't know about the ergonomic thimble, but this is the thimble I use and it is awesome.

    It is fit to your finger. Mine is so comfortable and I can't even feel it on my finger. Check it out. They have a lifetime guarantee. Worth a look.

    You'll have to let us know if you like the ergonomic thimble or not. I've never heard of it before. I use an open thimble and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world! Well, maybe a Bernina with a stitch regulator. :lol:

    I wish there was a local thimble shop stop to see all of them that are made in the world!:)Or at least the ones online:)I have a friend that has the prettiest thimble and it wasn't expensive...looks almost like the reg thimble only on the top is a non grooved brass fitting..smooth w/a lip on the top....no grooves and it is a real pretty!! We can not find it to buy another!! And, where she thought she picked it up doesn't have them/and, doesn't even know what she is talking about...so sad!!:)Maybe we should do a photos w/all our thimbles;)LOL

    I'd say post a picture. Who knows, maybe someone will recognize it and be able to tell you where to buy them at.

    My picture would be of my finger in my thimble, blood coming from some needle prick or another. :lol:

    Interesting concepts. I try new ones, but always go back to the old tried and true ones.

    I use a leather one. I prefer the ones that are kind of a golden brown and have a small plastic disk underneath where the needle will be pushed. I wear a shorter black leather thimble on my opposite thumb. When I quilt with my left hand I push with the thumb.
