This is a photo of my favourite thimble. It’s a Clover adjustable brass thimble. This is a small one but even so I’ve got the adjustable bits crossed over. I nearly bought a fancy silver one a couple of years ago when I visited Jinny Beyer’s Studio. The trouble was that I was a size they didn’t have. They very kindly gave me details of the website that makes them. However when I contacted the makers they were very unhelpful and so I decided to keep my $80 and make do.

I have a had a Thimblelady’s thimble which works brilliantly if you use her quilting technique but personally I don’t find that technique pleasing to do even though it results in beautiful, small, even stitches. (How contrary can you get?)

What’s your favourite thimble?
