Thimbles are a small hard pitted cup worn for protection on the tip of finger that when the needle is pushed in the sewing or quilting. There are many types which are made from metal or ergonomic moulded plastic and some are adjustable or fit on the end of your finger in a Pad or oval shape, which are adhesive to your finger. Some finger guards are little more than a finger shield attached to a ring to maintain the guard in place.
