Featured Tool: Soft Comfort Thimbles by Dritz, Item #82343
Connecting Threads Reviewer: Jenna
What are these typically used for?
These tools protect your fingers as you do handwork.
What was your first impression of the soft thimble?
They looked comfortable, and I was intrigued by the air holes.
What was your experience with them like?
You simply fit a thimble onto the finger you most use to push the needle into your fabric. They come in three sizes; the large size fit me best. I loved using them, they’re so smooth and comfortable. The air holes allow for a really great fit.
How long did it take you to learn how to use it?
What did you like best?
I liked the feel of the Soft Comfort Thimbles. I don’t have long nails, so that wasn’t an issue for me either. The small, dimpled tips catch the needle and prevent it from slipping.
Why do you NEED it?
I love to embroider, so these are a must-have. Also, doing binding with these is a snap! It’s comfortable and I didn’t notice it was on after a while. My fingers were protected from accidental stress or needle jamming.
Who would appreciate the soft comfort thimbles most?
These are perfect for:
- Anyone using a sewing needle by hand
- Beginner, intermediate, and expert quilters
- Embroiderers, paper-piecers, hand crafters
- Anyone acquiring the essential quilting/sewing tools
Any other perks?
For a limited time, they are currently 40% off!
