Remember way back when, when we were discussing embroidery tools and, specifically, thimbles? When we asked for your input, a few of you mentioned adhesive leather thimble pads, but that was the only thimble variety I was unable to test out.
In the meantime, a few sticky thimble pads landed in my mailbox courtesy of my &Stitches co-worker Carina (thanks, Carina!), and I have to tell you, I haven't looked back since! I do occasionally use my thick Clover thimble, if I'm sewing something tough or using an especially large needle, but I've mostly stuck (no pun intended!) with the leather pads. I believe I've tried two different brands now and not noticed any difference, so if you find yourself all stabbed up and sore, give these sticky guys a go!
