This a selection of thimbles I own. Generally I don’t wear a thimble when I’m handsewing. In the past I’ve found that if I use super sharp Clover sewing needles I don’t have too many sewing mishaps. Lately though I have been so clumsy and seem incapable of hand sewing without injuring myself. In fact at the moment some of my fingertips probably wouldn’t give an accurate fingerprint. Which makes me wonder do other sewers use a thimble?
