    Hi all,
    Last year, I purchased this thimble at the quilt show in Paducah.
    I threw away the receipt (lesson learned) and don't remember what company this is.

    I've lost some weight, in my hands, evidently, and now the thimble falls off!

    Does anyone recognize this thimble?

    Or,

    Can anyone recommend another company?

    It was a great thimble - not a round one that fits funny, but it was an oblong/oval that fit perfectly

    Looks like a TJ Lane Thimble, this model in particular

    I love their thimbles. While most will freak out at the price tag of them (I know I did when I first looked at them) they are worth every penny to me. I have never found a thimble I could use until I tried a TJ Lane.

    Edited to add: If you get another do not throw away the receipt or packing material. TJ Lane guarantees their thimbles for life! You need this stuff to know where to ship for repairs.

    Contact them and let them know you lost weight (congratulations!!! ) They may just let you exchange it for a smaller size! They are a great company to deal with.

    Oh, That's a great idea!

    And, thank you! I only hoped that it would be more than my hands getting smaller ;) !
