Thimbles by TJ.. It was very expensive but I was working and had long nails, so I felt it was worth the investment. I has been a wonderful tool for quilting! This last week though, I got a hole in the base and my needle gets stuck. Oh bother! Thankfully, my bff had kept all of her receipts-she purchased one at the same time and she was able to give me the website info. I know they can repair it and hopefully will be able to get the hole sealed. However, this is the only thimble I use and can't imagine being without it; thankfully I am done with the baby quilt and won't need to hand quilt anything for a bit. There is a big quilt show in a few weeks, south of here, and they may be selling them there but the current cost is $100. Yes mam, you read that right. There may be a metal glue that would work as well; I have figured out, though, that when you average the years I've had the thimble and the quilts I've made, it has probably have paid for itself several times over.
I wonder, for you my quilting friends, if you hand stitch-do you use a thimble. I so love the look of this one, I really hope I am able to get it fixed.
Have a great weekend.
