    I talked about how to hand sew in the chat room with some of the ladies and found it a bit different in the way as we do in Japan.
    Is this quite new to you???
    Do all the ladies use metal cap top on your middle finger?

    Hello from Spain Youme :D

    That looks a very different technique than how the majority of Westerners sew, I like the idea of an open thimble on the middle of your finger, although I have never seen one for sale :D

    Hello, Izy.
    I even didn't know that the thimble we use is not sold there.
    In Japan, Hawaiian quilt ispretty big and they use the same type of thimble that western people do, but for me, the way I showed in the piture is the fastest way to sew .

    Interesting, I have never been able to use a thimble, if I need something I use the rubber finger protectors that they use in offices :wink:

    That is quite different! I wonder how hard it would be to learn to do that.

    Quite different from the way I was taught! Looks way more efficient though!

    It is easier way for me to push the needle with more stress to go through the whole sandwitched fabrics and battings without hoops.

    And Laies, I have a question here.
    Do you use a longer needle for quilting?
    It IS my way, and teacher never recommend me so, but I handsew everything with the short needle, that just fit my finger when I hold it in this way.

    How unusual. I can see how it would work.
