    not the gloves with rubber dots on them for free motion quilting. but there are gloves out there called Handeze (sp) that are stretchy and fingerless on the ends. they help keep your hands warm and give them support.
    when my thumbs were killing me they helped a great deal.

    The gloves just give you more gripping ability when quilting.

    I too have the ones from Fons and Porter. They really are helpful. But they are warm too but I would imagine that all of them are.

    I use the Atlas gardening gloves. I can get them cheaper than the Machingers, but it looks like the M's might keep your hands cooler since they are thinner. My hands do get hot, but they help me keep a good grip when doing freemotion quilting. I guess they might help you with the hand that pulls the needle through with hand quilting, but I don't do much of that, so haven't tried it yet with the gloves.

    The Machingers are great, hands stay cool, you can keep them on for fiddly things, they wash well and dont lose shape or anything.

    That's what I use too. Not sure why, but they help me move the fabric better.

    I, too found the rotary blade sharpner a waste of money and time. Antonio
