What kind of thimble should I use?

Thimble Pads

Small leather and plastic pads with adhesive backs are available for finger protection when hand sewing. These thimble pads work well for people that do not feel that they have enough control while wearing a thimble. You need to be consistent in how you push the needle during hand sewing to get proper placement of the pad.
