    Yep! But I'll never have to buy another thimble! And it works!! I didn't get the sterling thimble though! :cry:

    Not one of the others thimbles that I've tried over the years would stay on my finger.

    My battle cry is, "That's why I worked for 31 years!" And as long as I don't do it too often... Sigh! It did take a chunk out of my fabric $$$!

    (1) I'm sure you're worth it
    (2) If it keeps you from sticking yourself and bleeding all over your hard work, then it's worth it, too.

    Hey Debbie,
    Day late and a dollar short, but, Clotilde's has some great open thimbles. I have some stick on thimbles I'll send you if you want them. I can't use them, they bother me. I used to have scuplture nails, but quilting is more fun. lol lol

    I'm having tough time typing.....sewed my index finger the other night. First time in 50 years of sewing to do anything so dumb. Because I'm a touch typist not a hunt and peck, I may get some keys wrong, sorry id the words don't come right.

    psssssssssst!!!! c'mere. i'll tell you a secret.

    i use the underside of my sculptured nails like thimbles. otherwise, they wouldn't be worth the expense. (which reminds me ... i need a new set. LOL)

    Pssssssst. Mine are fake too and I've done the same thing with mine. We went to an auction last weekend and I was so excited they had an old wardrobe closet up for auction. I had to sit there for 3 hrs waiting for it to come up and I sat there and picked and pulled at my nails til they all came off. Oh God I hate myself when I do that. It went for $360. Of which I couldn't afford but I did get some vintage embroidered linen hand towels. I love antiques.

    Either Herrschners or Joann's sells these leather thimbles that has a slit cut in it for long fingernails to go through. I don't remember the brand but I have one and use it a lot.
