    I don't use the glove, but I do have short fingers like you do, so I sure understand what you are asking. Do the gloves come in different sizes? I would think that there would be some that fit if that is the case. I will be reading this thread to see if any short fingered person answers, saying that she has a glove that fits.

    Take care of your finger!

    My ring size is 5 and the extra small size fits great.
    Got fabric?

    Don't forget a tetanus shot. Adults are supposed to have one every 10 years.

    I feel for you. Yesterday I was trying to move a bag with Accuquilt dies in it, and I don't know how in the world I did it, but something cut right into my hand. Fortunately, the nurse who lives next door was able to tape it up, but I'm going to the doctor's today for possible stitches and a tetanus shot.

    First time I've ever been hurt quilting, and I hope it's the last!

    Many will say it cost too much but what is it worth to not have a bad cut right now?

    I use a cut resistant glove when I go to classes/sewdays. I bought this one: Victorinox Cutlery Performance Shield Cut Resistant Glove, Extra Small at Amazon.



    I learned my lesson when I got my first cut. It scared me thinking how bad it could have been so I now use safety tools and will buy any new ones that come on the market.


    One ER visit cost will buy a lot of fabric!
    Ooooh that slide lock looks awesome!.. I'll check that out for sure....

    Oh.. hmm thanks for the reminder 'quiltngolfer'.. I can't remember when the last time was that I had a tetanus shot.. I might just call my primary care dr to ask just in case... :|

    The finger feels a bit better today.. I changed the bandage when I got out of the shower this morning and scared myself at how bad of a cut this is.. I'm getting a glove and a ruler guard for sure.. luckily no stitches needed, but this could have been much worse... not to mention that I get very weak in the knees and had my husband not been within ear shot and could slide a chair under me and open a window for fresh air I probably would have passed out..

    I don't see the Klutz gloves from Fons and Porter in XSmall but the Victorinox seem to come in that size so I'll start with those..

    Thanks ladies!

    When I ask my Dr if I need a tetanus shot, he always says if you ask then you probably do. LOL
    Got fabric?

    So sorry about your accident. I think for me, too, it's just a matter of time. I will use all of your experiences as lessons to learn from. Please take care of your finger.
