Anyone else out there suffering from a very sore thumb(s) due to quilt-making? If so, have you found anything that helps?
I damaged the tendon(s) at the base of my left thumb several years ago when I tied too many fleece blankets in a short period of time. While it has never fully healed, I find that cutting, piecing, quilting, and binding quilts exacerbate the problem. (The worst offenders are quilting and binding.)
Has anyone found a solution to this problem? Is there a way to "tape" or brace the thumb that allows it to heal? I don't want to give up quilting for months if there's another way to fix this problem.
Thanks in advance for any wisdom you can provide.
