I haven't been able to find any thimbles that are comfortable or that fit me well. They are either too small or make my finger all sweaty!! Went into the LQS the other day and she suggested these finger pads--they are wonderful!!! They just stick to the tip of your finger and you can reuse them. So, if anyone is having trouble with thimbles, try these out!! They are small leather dots, when I'm binding my quilts I don't even notice that it is there and my finger feels so much better!! :-D :-D . I'm also going to use these when I try my hand piecing and quilting project.
