For one thing, make sure you wearing the thimble on the correct finger--your middle finger, not your index finger. Some people try to wear them on the index finger, and that is incorrect. Thimbles are like any other piece of clothing--you need to chose the correct size. Try some on to get the correct fit. It should be snug, not loose, but not too tight.Originally Posted by QuiltingGrannie
I LOVE my Roxanne thimble. It has an open nail area, so it doesn't sweat, and you can wear it with long fingernails. After you get used to the weight, you forget it's there. But like I said, you have to have the correct size.
Then, wear it for a couple of hours without sewing, just to get used to the feel. After that you should be home free.
