As to price, I hand quilt a lot, and this was an investment. I was eating up the leather type thimbles. I've this for 10 years and have not put a hole in it.

Phew, I had a problem remembering the name, but I found it (thank you Google)

I have the open heart lacy one, and its beautiful. (Since I am on my own now, I buy myself a birthday present each year, and I find I am more generous with me, than I was with my DH who is now my ex!)
Thanks, I like them. They are prettier than the Roxanne. Who better to be generous with?

Oh, if only I could have one of those pretty thimbles.

Maybe if I click my red shoes three times...

I have 2 Roxanne thimbles, I like them, but I have found that I bought the 2nd a little tight. I have a thimble my mother bought for me 39 years ago and I can't find another like it, it is a regular thimble that looks like a small can openercut 1/2 of the top and bent it up to allow your long fingernail to come thru, has anyone seen this?

I use the ThimbleLady stainless steel thimble. Similar to the Roxanne in that it is open-ended and you use the pad of your finger. The opening is larger and the thimble itself is a little longer. They are about $35 each for the s/s. First I tried their plastic one (at @ $10) to see if I would like the style/fit. Both were great so then upgraded to the stainless steel. I will say, the first one I eventually poked a hole through one of the dimples..guess I use the same one(s) over & over.

There is also a Roxette thimble, in 4 or 5 pretty colors. I've seen them for $14.99 to $19.99.

OMG I thought a Clover thimble for $8.00 was expensive.

I've had one for at least 20 years. I don't hand quilt but have used it for doing hand work on bindings etc. I really like it but often find myself moving it from my ring finger to my middle finger and back again.
