Thimbles for hand sewing

Thimbles come in either metal, leather or ergonomic materials to name a few. It protects the top and edges of your preferred finger that pushes a needle through your project. When the needle is pushed in the sewing this prevents the needle hurting your fingertip. The dimples and grooves on a thimble catch the needle eye and keep it from slipping. A thimble protects the finger from the eye end of the needle. Pushing a needle through thick layers of fabric is much easier with a thimble. Pulling a needle through fabric layers can be very tiring on your thumb and index finger.

Come in many styles, shapes and materials, from metal or ergonomic moulded plastic.
