The perfect light duty thimble!
Every now and then, something comes along that is radically different and totally unexpected. That is exactly what happened with this thimble.
In the course of developing a comfortable yet durable thimble, a prototype was accidentally made that was too thin and flexible. It was soon realized that the soft shell was great protection for the finger under the quilt when quilting or under an applique block when stitching down the pieces. Thus, the W'nder Thimble was soon named because it is wonderful when the finger under the quilt is not being poked!
The W'nder Thimble provides thin, flexible protection for the finger under the quilt. You can feel the needle point as it exits the fabric without having to build up and maintain a callous. It also works wonderfullly for hand piecing, stitching down bindings, general hand sewing and needlepoint. Available in large, medium, and small sizes.

I was to glad to find these thimbles and will continually rely on them for my hand-quilted baby quilts. I love the fit and feel while using them. They do not fall off or bind. I use the rocking method with needle so I poke into it each time. I wear them out but go to my stock for another one to keep going. Can't be without them. Thanks to the engineer husband!!

I had bought the thimble, in fact several of them when they actually thimble's. I loved the thimble so much, that when I found what I thought was the thimble, on line I ordered 8 of them. Imagine my surprise when I received them and they are NOT thimbles but finger protectors, that u don't use. I think people should be told that they are not thimble anymore. I am rather upset with these slick pieces of plastic. I LOVE D the thimble!!!!!
